Getting The Feel

6:32 am:
Yesterday evening I constructed the right side of the wall which separates my living quarters from my workshop.

This morning when I got out of bed, I was impacted by the how much the feel of Box Van has changed now that the separating wall is in place. Maybe it's the doorway that impacts me most of all!

Before, Box Van was only one room. Now, Box Van is two rooms!

Vive la différence!

10:52 am:
I have now received all the plumbing fittings and electric parts for Box Van.

Right now the propane gas line from the tank goes into a Tee. One end of that Tee runs to the Unique gas range. The other end of that Tee is connected to a rubber hose that sends propane to the Wave-6 Catalytic Heater.

I am considering changing the line to the Wave-6 to a black pipe line. This gas line will end up being a manifold for the Wave-6 and Marey water heater.

    My concern and the issue that I see is once you put your bronco in there how are you going to get out of your vehicle and trust me you will not have any room to open the door
    the other thing is how are you going to Secure it
    Using D rings at a 45° angle from the axle in the front are going to be problem Mattick to attach. Even with high clearance
    The back rear would be a little easier but still somewhat awkward
    Using a 17 foot box van limit you to only using your vehicle with little or no storage is available except on the nose
    After you install your two ramps
    Some of the rental trucks companies sell a 20 foot box van which would give you more room in the front and the rear but I don't know the cost or your budget
    I do know numerous guys useing the 20 footer for there UTVs with fold down units for short term camping
    And b modified racecars with tool racks and tire / parts bins

  5. George,
    Looking good! Why is your toilet not in the back, out of the living area?

    Happy Holidays!
