We were at 6800 lbs when weighed after most of the interior and electric was installed. I'm a little concerned about adding weight up high but we shouldnt be carrying much up there. Camp chairs, tarps, etc. If we put 20 gal of water storage up there that that'll be an extra 200lbs. The rack is almost as long as the whole roof.

Jeep, bus, repeat.

Sanded, wipe down, and painted International Harvester red. Tomorrow I will cut the legs down and make the brackets to attach it to the roof. Maybe Sunday we will mount it

Thanks Cosmic. I'm having fun. Also put a door in the end of one of my benches. Realised it would be convenient to have access by the handicap door. After

High of 82 today + 40 mile drive to mother in laws. Lets see if 5000 btu's can keep us cool driving.

We will build a better hold down for the generator and a fake dog house to cover it. That way when we Dismount it from the rack at the campgrounds and move it away from the bus we will put the dog house over it to help Shield the noise

I like the Paleo diet myself. It doesn't actually work, but you get to eat a lot of barbeque!

Legs are trimmed. Now to use the angle iron that came with it to make the brackets to mount it to the roof.
