Double Minded

7:54 am:
When I write about avoiding being Double Minded in the context of my new Box Van, I am referring to thinking positively about the outcome of this project. Not wavering.

I put the possibility of making mistakes, out of my mind. Of course I Blog about what I am about to do so that you, Dear Reader, may comment. For example, I am about to begin creating a passageway from the driving area to the living quarters/workshop area.




8:38 am:
Selling Scampy
We are putting Scampy up for sale. A "For Sale" sign will be placed in Scampy's rear window.




11:23 pm:
Wrist News
I am happy to tell you that over the past two days, I find that I am able to use my left hand again without pain! 😎

      The passageway?

      I gather that you like that.

    2. Yes George, the passage way. I cannot image a rig without one, but then this is your build and not mine or your readers. This link..,

    3. Squire,

      I want to do this thing myself. That's joy of it for me!

  2. Hi George... you are amazing. You bought your new box van quicker than I can choose new bvd"s in Wal- Mart.
    Btw, I pull my Silverado 4x4 crew cab behind my 40 ft Class A. Total length with Blue Ox tow bar is 67 ft. Your 36 ft is doable. The higher visibility helps me and I expect you will find it works for you too.
    Judicially accepting some help in your build out may speed the process and make your changeover just a little easier, especially considering your wrist issue.
    Looking forward to your blogs.

    1. Ernie,

      I was only able to make a buy decision quickly because I had spent perhaps 20-hours on the internet and on the phone talking with sellers of box vans over the past week.

    1. Kent,

      Speaking about MsTioga. The other day when I was on I-5 on the way to return the rented 10-foot box van, I drove right by where she met her fate!

      I was not able to know the exact place. But it was about 20-miles south of Bakersfield going south.

  4. Good idea. That way you have two entries and exits. Scampy for sale so soon?

    1. Dawg,

      It may seem soon to sell Scampy.

      However, as soon as the pass thru is installed, I will begin living fulltime in Box Van.

  5. Are you going to do the pass through yourself? If so, be sure to know if there is any flex between the cab and the box. If there is, the construction will be prone to separation and water intrusion. Water has a way of finding even the smallest gap. Good luck.

    1. Robert,

      It appears as though other folks who put in a pass thru used Accordion Boot Seal. Click [Here] to view.

  6. Quite a project!
    I was looking into the DIY cab to box passageway and heard about "accordion seals". Learn something new everyday.

    A grinder with a cutting blade or a sawzall & make the opening, figure some way to protect yourself from the edges. An accordion seal between the box & the cab so they can both still move their own way that will keep the weather outside.

    1. Don,

      $14,000 is the price that I paid for Scampy. And I have made lots of improvements since then.

      $15,000 is the sale price.

    2. Good luck with that George. I hope you aren't in a hurry to sell. I did some price checking and I think you'll be lucky to get $10k.

    3. Don,

      Snap judgment, Don?

      Did your checking include taking into consideration Scampy's equipment package?
