Wow, Fred! Great work.

You are going to have a really nice camper soon. I like the upper fridge vent with a removable door. I wish I'd done that now - so much easier to access if necessary.

Here is the final result for the heater. Instead of filling the old chemnee hole with fiberglass I made used a painted aluminium plate and the result is great.


In the next days I will be reflorring and reorganizing esthetic issue. Will send some more pics soon.

Fred, great job so far. Keep up the good work.

If it is not too late to mention it, buy yourself a Dremel (or other brand) Multi-Tool. These can help you cut through the FG with a lot of precision, minimum edge chipping and very little dust/waste.

Thanks to all for your comments.

Robert: I did use a skill saw and I would have to do it again I would go with your dremel idea because the job is great but would have been better with a less agressive tool.

I just completed the ''Project'' ouf what a huge amount of time but worth the effort as the final result look great for us.

Added a 3 way fridge, a water pump etc. Fully independant with a class 31 batterie that is supose to be good for a full 3 day autonomy.

Only thing missing is a solar panel that will come one of these day.

Here are some pics of the final result.

We are going on a kiteboading tour for the summer so that is why there are so many stickers

Got a chance to sleep in the Uhaul on christmas eve at -15 and the heating system works great. No mod or insulation and the temperature inside was 22. This will be a great way to stay around the ski slope!!!

Great to hear back that you are using and enjoying your UHaul. Do you still have the original furnace?
