Progress has been slow and steady. The biggest job this weekend was installing the hinge for the bed. One side of the mattress rests on a "wing" over the left tire, and the other part rests on a hinged aluminum plate that lifts up to access a 72x22x12 inch storage compartment under the bed. I had to drill 96 holes and tap 32 of them, so it took a day and a half.

Yesterday I mounted the transit plate for the Engel 45 fridge, and today I did a test fit to make sure I could install and remove the fridge in the narrow floor well:

I'm redrawing the roof line yet again to make room for the Maxxair 7500K 10-speed fan:
Maxxair Deluxe Remote Opening Fan

Still hoping to have it on the road in late February.
