I joined this site years ago when I bought a Northstar T1000 and put it my my Humvee.
Since then I sold it as there was no where good to take it I. Illinois.
Moved to Alaska 11/21.
Kept the Humvee
Been finding amazing off road adventures.
I bought a project camper this week.
Hoping to put it all together soon
$500. Stripped all the skin off it today to locate and repair some wood rot.
Here it is.

Next phase is sectioning out the rotten wood. I picked up a truck load of materials yesterday at Lowes – the standard cheap pine fir strips is NOT okay to use as they are twisted, bowed, and will likely split with screws and staples. I upgraded to higher quality materials – costing more – but should be easier to work with. I’m going to have to pick my path carefully to not remove too much at one time – I also picked up some cheap 2x3x8 boards to cross brace while the structure is opened up.

Ah…so, the rotten wood is mostly gone now. Been a steady thrash getting the rotten wood out. My plan was to leave the inner paneling in place – although it is clearly needing replacment in places…but it acts as a template for everything to go into place on the structural side. I “THINK” I’m happy with the results so far. Next…is the electrical. I have a power panel, switches, outlets, lights – and more on the way.
