Great work, glad you posted. My Wifey would love to have her seat that close to me...

Re: Jumped in with both feet!

Thanks! There's still a few odds and ends to clean up.... trim for the floor, gonna turn up the injector pump for a bit more power, and add a small window for the bathroom... Its only 23 1/2 ft long, so small enough to fit into most parking areas, or reg campsites... We prefer more out of the way parks, don't need full hookups, so we get more camping options!

Re: Jumped in with both feet!

Maybe I missed it but...what engine/tranny do you have in that little Bird? Seems most of the P-30 chassis came with the Cummins 4BT & Allison MT545 so I had to wonder.
