Only office day today !
doing some research on materials an how to fix one problem after the other.....
I phoned a bavarian manufacturer of very strong expedition camper cabins. He works with a special type of plywood called "Siebdruckplatte" translated screen printing plate. Pics says more:
These plates are available in the perfect size ~ 8ft x 4ft ( 250cm x 125 cm ) they are very stable and nearly waterproof.
The ply layers are bonded with phenolic resin
They are used for floors in Big Trucks and trailers and on livestock trailers.
I can work with thinner material, save weight + add stability. Only use double on the places where the pulleys of the roof lift are located. I think this is the perfect material for use on the bottom part of a truckcamper.
#1: Reliability: Form follows function.
Rustikab uses 3/4" for Expedition Cabins on 4x4 7,5 ton trucks and 3/8" for use on Slide in Campers for Pickup-Trucks.
One difference in my plans is it to use Standard - L-shape-Aluminium profiles not the special Profiles used in these professional constructions.
Glue this together with Terostat MS939 + short screws. This will protect me from most "wild" neighbours on european campgrounds.
