Hi, I'm doing a custom camper conversion! I purchased a used 2016 159" high roof gas model to turn into my home for the next year or two. I'm still very early phases, but I'm hoping to knock out most of the fundamental work in the next week (insulation, paneling, flooring, electric). Looking forward to sharing my progress with you all and hopefully getting some help with a few questions I have!

Boy, I wish I was that young again! I get about 4 hours a day in before the energy level drops, the bones get tired, and the couch starts calling, "naptime!" :D

Can we come watch while you get that all done in a week? I'm not even sure our eyes could keep up with you.

IOW, do not underestimate the complexities of building in a box that is neither flat, square, nor level. Even surfaces that look straight aren't.

Yup. It's fun, not work, so time doesn't matter. Actually, slow may be better in the end, because the most important time is the thinking time, and that's best not rushed.

Hi Rob,
Im in research phase and have watched a few videos on YouTube. You will see some channels that post their whole van build and several right from the start. So this will take away the mystery for you. It helped me to see people deciding on insulation of walls and also dealing with the decisions for flooring (insulation there as well). After that will be the layout and finishing techniques used...the fun parts.
