Very nice, I would so love to see it in person.

What are you planning to do for window coverings, Robert?

Love the flooring - is that some kind of cork product or is it carpet? I really can't tell, which I think is part of why I'm so curious

Thanks all. Been a very long haul... And now, very much still to do.

About window coverings: frankly, we're still investigating our options. Our biggest challenge is the sweeping windshield. I'd like to find a consistent solution for all windows.

Yes, that is cork flooring. As anyone my age can tell you, this product is durable, comfortable and great looking. That said, we plan to offer three flooring options: cork, Marmoleum and FLOR carpet tiles.

Great Camper:n Now the road testing & time will tell if all is well. Parkliner found that time and road travel made them correct areas to get the correct product. I love it the Nest but it is a year to late for us.

I am assuming that you were not quite done. The attached picture of the road side seems to be missing something. will this be cupboards, or a desk, or...
Also, what I assume to be closet is visible. Good size for one anyway.

Congratulations Robert to you and all the team involved.
It looks very contemporary and minimal, just right. Users can tailor and customize as needed....

Look forward to meet out there in the future, my reno is scheduled for this year (again!) and I find it so interesting I have chosen many solutions like the one you ended up using here ( panel box, shower head, clean look...)

I went for a plain counter, with on the counter induction cook top, and many other differences, in any case, congratulation again for your accomplishment, you have been / continue to be an inspiration.

As Ken C. rightfully points out, the area under the 23" deep x 50" wide countertop is space for two folding chairs, which store inside the closet to the right while in transit.
