Not sure if this should be in a new topic, but I thought I would post here in the meantime. I bought a Hawk Shell last year and made some mods and am quite happy with the result.
What I have done:
-Removed all extra panels and carpet coverings. I think I pulled out about 100 pounds of panels I didn't need. i re-used some of them for trimming out my mods.
-Pulled stove forward about 8" to make it flush with the front of the propane storage compartment. This gave me extra space in the battery cupboard and also added a handy nook behind the stove. Most importantly, it made cooking on the stove more comfortable since the propane cupboard made me have to reach forward too much.
-I built 6 full extension drawers. The big ones are 20" deep. The one under the sink is about 6", and the two near the bed are about 14" deep. I much prefer drawers to cupboards. I used 1/2" baltic birch ply to keep the weight down while still keeping them strong.
-i shortened the 4 compartment storage thingy and moved it from the couch side (where it was always in the way of my head) to just above the counter, where it is super handy.
-i cut about 2" off the front camper "bumpers" to allow the camper to slide forward....surprise surprise...another 2 inches.
-I added a water tank, accumulator, sink, inverter, outdoor faucet (for filling dog bowls and water jugs) and 100W solar panel. I added a couch "platform" and will be adding a 14 degree back and two more cushions. I also added an ARB cooler which i absolutely LOVE.
-i removed 2 out of the three plywood cross supports under the camper to lower the overall height on my dodge ram.
