Those things are kinda cute. Is there a big doghouse inside so you can work on it?

You could always add silver stripes or black curves with silver to make it look more like a custom RV. We will paint ours white as a base and go from there. I wanted to put chrome bumpers on mine but can't find a source. The local chrome plater wants $850 to chrome mine.
