PagosaDosa Shortie Half-Way There!

Gents! Picked up a 2003 e450 7.3 turbo diesel this year. Partially done with my conversion... and 2 trips in I am in LOVE. We are in Pagosa Springs, CO, so we affectionately named her PagosaDosa (<___ dosa = bus in another Anglo Saxon language).

Yet to come:

Roof top AC (been using window unit OR floor unit - not getting it done in 100+ degree weather).

Back deck (3x with shower, generator storage, and bike rack.

Full kitchen

Slide out compost toilet built under counter

In-dash DVD/Bluetooth/Navi + Back-Up Camera on rear deck

Update 9-25-2019

Got the rear deck frame welded on and painted! Next up (Tuesday the 1st) - Trex decking over rear deck frame, back up camera, in dash unit (linked to 43" TV with composite cable) + 4 new kicker speakers, and light bar up front (for the sketchy night time mountain driving!).

Went down to Dulce, NM for a festival and Dosa was lovely. Off to Florida for a beach vacation next! Keep it up shorties of the world.
