I realized I should put a build on here, I enjoy showing off my work. I bought this July of 2015. It has been a work in progress but it is starting to get there

The day I got it

And what she currently looks like

Looking good, dude. I like the new additions since the Back to School Run.

D'oh! I don't get it. It may be because I'm over 6 ft, but I don't see an area long enough to lay down in. If I'm seeing the pictures correctly there is a bulkhead separating the front area from the back storage/kitchen area. I thought maybe it swung up for foot room but there appears to be wiring on the divider that would preclude that. What's up on the design? The size looks good for towing, but man I've got to be able to stretch out, especially if I can't stand up.

I'm 6'2" and I have a solid inch or 2 behind my head when I lay down. Looks can be deceiving

Cool! I guess looks can be deceiving.
