many thanks Tango and Natster.

honestly the bath is the weakest part of the camper...... i wish i had heeded Natster's advice on the waterproofing.

i finished up the plumbing and got water from the holding tank to the waste holding tank. instead of p-traps, im using the hepvo trap.



and now water at all appliances.





and a closet hanging rod

i got some more pieces back from the upholstery guy. the front headliner and over the drivers and passenger side windows.

i got my battery gauges wired and mounted in the newly covered panels. i still need to hook up one of the monitors to the truck side, but the house side is working.




the front headliner piece is covered in a real fancy fake black leather

the black doesnt photo so well but here is the radio cut out and the big door for the front compartment open.





and a stolen idea from someone else's skoolie.... im working on a curtain rod (conduit) that will hang just under the headliner.

Looks great! I like the "stand up to drive" idea--sort of like being the skipper of a three masted schooner. Just kidding.

AAAArrrrrrrrrrggggghh!! matey! this ole schooner will set sail soon!

just as soon as that drivers seat comes back from the upholstery guy!

here are the completed conduit curtain rods..... now ready for curtains.



and the rod on the back window




I'm not sure if there is a conflict with my tail pipe and drain pipe or not. but just in case, i put a bit of a heat shield around the abs drain pipe. its wrapped in insulation and covered with aluminum tubing, hose clamps secure it at both ends.

the drive shaft is in front in the pic, the tail pipe is right behind it.

Good thinking, good solution. Better safe than...well, you know. My exhaust comes off a turbo and the head section gets extremely (as in glowing) hot. I am having to take similar precautions but to the max. You can also wrap your exhaust pipe with insulating tape made specifically for such situations. Good stuff.

There are different brands and temperature levels but below is the basic stuff in case you haven't seen it...
