Howdy Everyone, Again, mucho thanks to Mr. Sam (DesertMoose) for sorting our hatch issues and here is his final solution as promised. It works perfectly for my long heavy hatch.

Just a little update. We needed a handle inside the hatch to help close it once opened. I ended up using a small black leather belt and two of the molding covers. I mounted it on the other side from the exterior handle.

Here is a view of the new handle between our LED lights.

On to the icebox,

Hi Bscnave, Holy Cow, How did I miss thanking Mr. Dan Lott for graciously giving us the awesome paper towel holder on this thread! Sorry about that Dan...THANK YOU AGAIN KIND SIR!!! I think Dan found a couple of them on Ebay for his build. I've never seen them before or since; I hope you can find them.

All the Best,

Dave

Hi Dave,

Hope you are well. Just to let you know I am still working on the Irish Atma (a mere 15 months later :? )

Just got the cabinets finished and the headliner in recently. Here is a snap:

and a link to the build.

Thanks for your help and encouragement (although you should have warned me about the sleepless nights :roll: )

Hi Larry, What a great build you have going there! I'm Scotch Irish (McCamant) and I would love to see your Irish Atma in person. I'm honored to have been of help. About those sleepless nights... I wouldn't dream of ruining ANY of the experience for you. ;)

All the Best,

Dave

Dave, I hope you're all right with 'Atma Clones' becoming a thing. Because I'm also looking at what you've done and thinking there is very, very little that I would do differently if I were standing in your shoes.

And since I'm in my own significantly-less-capable (and probably significantly poorer) shoes, the 'Atma Clone' I have in mind probably won't have the fit and finish you were able to achieve. But if you're bothered by less-skilled imitators, please stop me now before I get rolling.

:)

In all seriousness, it's a phenomenally inspiring build.

Hi Jack,

It is an honor for me that you also wish to build a version of the Atma Travelear. You are more than welcome to roll on good Sir. I'm glad my build has inspired you to take the plunge.

All the Best,

Dave

Hello, Dave!

I still go back thru the posts admiring your work!

Can you provide any information regarding the availability of plans for the Atma Trailer?

Would love to get my hands on some.

Thanks and Happy Camping!

Hi Mike,

I've got the plans at about 60% done at this time. It looks like finishing them will be a winter project at this point.

All the Best,

Dave
