Thanks for the details in this thread Tim! Just bought myself a used FLEET and I'm gonna be referencing your work quite a bit.
Awesome JT. Looking forward to reading your build thread. Get some before photos going!
Tim, are you still using the original sideliner or have you tackled making a new one?
Boonie. My sideliner is off the camper and will not be going back on. I will make my own. Around Christmas I got samples from:
Ill go with the 22oz. Probably gray colored. Around Christmas I also went and met up with Poky, who gave me a grand tour of his build and we extensively chatted about the sewing. I think I have a clear picture of what I need to do. Not much progress on my build recently. Slowing chipping away but I have been spending too much time skiing
Winter is what I bought the camper for, but its not ready. So I have a catch 22 of working on the camper to get it ready for winter, or enjoying winter. A very privileged dilemma.
I noticed on the cab over bed plywood there seems to be a track or metal framing down the middle. Can you tell me what that is? The Grandby I just picked up doesn't have that, although there is a seam down the middle of the plywood. I think that's due to someone replacing the plywood and had to do it in 2 pieces, otherwise they would have had to remove the paneling. Thanks, Ron
Hey Ron, Can you point me to what picture you are referencing? My cab over plywood was replaced by the previous owner so whatever I have is probably not stock. It is also two pieces. Down the middle is a piece of wood, not metal. Also, when I received the camper there was no wall paneling in the cab over area so you may be correct the panels have to come off to drop the cab over in. I'd strongly suggest you sand the heck out of your new plywood and give it a nice stain, just cause I think it looks rad
Thanks all for the comments, it was fun to think about WTW and my TC again. Ill have to get back into the camper soon. I do have some progress I could write about. Ill get some good photos and report back soon.
