I have been here for some time, but have only posted my thoughts and substandard observations until now. I did post a picture of a scale model that I built of my proposed design. I have taken it to the next and, hopefully, final level.
Some explanation may be needed to clarify my, less than stellar, Sketchup prowess.
This will be built on an, approximately, 7X12 platform and have an interior height of 5 1/2 feet. The bed area slider will be 3 1/2 feet long.
The galley will also slide out and be 5 to 5 1/2 feet long. The extra 18 to 24 inch space will be used as a wardrobe. The wardrobe door is seen by the settee. The settee will be made from a castoff recliner. I'll strip it down to the guts and modify the mechanism to suit the trailer. There will be a removable table for indoor dining and card games, etc.
The area opposite the bed is the bathroom. It will have a cassette style toilet and probably a very small basin for hand washing. The shower pan, shown in front of the door will be normally covered. In the pix of the model that I built, it shows the bifold door that will open up to create a large shower area. I couldn't figure out how to draw it in Sketchup. There will be a circular shower curtain rod, about 36 inches in diameter to keep the water off of the floor and cabinets. There will be a water heater, probably in the bath cabinet. I plan on potable and gray tanks, no black tank.
I know this is a, rather, complicated build, but I do have the skill set and the tools and work space to pull it off. Here, at the Fongderosa, I have a fully equipped 1,000 sq. ft. shop with a woodworking side and a metal fabricating side. I am in the final stages of finishing a long and laborious motorcycle project, a 6 month deal that went over 4 years..................
I figure this to be a 1 year job, at the minimum. I have plenty of time, but limited funds. Right now, I'm looking for an old popup as a donor, but If one doesn't "popup", I may just build the chassis.
Pix are in my album. Feel free to comment, ask questions or mock my lack of sanity gallery/album.php?album_id=121
