Just wanted to say goodbye...

Looks like I'll have to switch to a different Forum next week after I win the $1/2 Billion PowerBall and buy a Glamper.

I plan on building my own "Florida Cracker" version of a toterhome.
I'll have to be an older KW or Peterbilt!

Right? I was thinking if you used a reefer box, you'd already have the insulation and a heck of a diesel a/c unit. Just that ...funky...smell???

aluminum acid takes away the funk but then you cant get rid of the acid smell so its a lose/lose but a reefer would give you plenty of room, a large moving/car trailer like this might do for those with pickier other halves lol

That would be right-up my alley! His build is going to be 1st Class.

Just trying to keep my mind otherwise occupied today. I'm tearing-out the old Bookmobile bathroom and linoleum. It's about as pleasant as you can imagine. (not quite prison-bus bad )

Hard to beat a classic Pete!

This is more or less my dream truck-

They had a few engines available, all of which are awesome in my book. But the Cat 3406 would be my choice in one of these.
