Picked up the new Manx Camper shell in Oct. The fine fellows at ATC supplied me with photos of the frame during construction.i-nPqxptc-L.jpgi-hSn4LbM-L.jpgi-xJQxs8Z-L.jpg

Got it home and put into the shop for the interior build during the winter.

 

A few pictures of the finished empty shell.

Installed the furnace.

Built the rear seat box.

Built the front seat box and checking to see if the water tank (cardboard box mock-up) water pump, fuse box, battery, cutoff switch and inverter all fits as planned. It's tight but ok.

Making the cabinets from maple this time. The face frame for the fridge cabinet. Working with different stain colors now to find the right one.

Nice looking frame Manxman. Looking forward to you layout, and seeing it come to life. What size and brand truck will it live on.

A 2017 Ford Superduty. 

 

To keep the wheelbase as short as possible for offroad wandering, it's a Supercab short box. Even with the short 148" wheelbase the 7' 9" camper fits basically flush to the hitch so no loss of departure angle.

The new flatbed hasn't been built yet but will be much like the one on my F150.
