Hello,

 

I am the proud new owner of a "used" 2021 Project M. I'm still a couple weeks away from picking it up from the current owner but the wheels in my head are turning on how I'm going to customize it. The previous owner went pretty bare-bones with what he ordered from the factory and I'd like to install some 80/20 on the exterior walls to mount a couple things. I emailed the service center asking where vertical supports were located and some other general design questions. Their response? "We do not offer any frame measurements, any modifications would void the warranty." Am I crazy or do they expect me to take my Project M to a dealer every time I want to do something to it?

 

Anyway, if anyone could shed some light on how the Project M was designed, how far apart the vertical supports are or any other info, I'd really appreciate it.

 

 

P.S. If anyone knows anything about the benches and if they can be altered/removed, that would be helpful too.

I know the "Project M is made by FWC",you might contact Marty at ATC for some help.

I "think" that the FWC/ATC campers may basically be framed the same way,so Marty 

should have some info for you.

 

FWC does get a bit sticky about giving out structural info.

It's worth a try.

What are the interior walls of the Project M sheathed with?  Probably your best bet is to either locate the existing fasteners to determine where the aluminium structure is, or to peel back the interior wall panels enough that you can see and mark where the structure is.    

 

I wouldn't expect FWC to provide structural drawings of their campers.   You don't need to take to them to work on it, but you will need to figure out how to attach things to the walls on your own.
