are those spring loaded hinges or something?

The are what's called 'prevailing torque' hinges which means they don't swing free. There is a screw that adjusts the pre-load. They will hold in any position but don't require any significant extra effort to move or close. Here are the ones I used: http://www.southco.com/en-us/e6-at/e6-10-301-20

Bathroom/shower pan made out of 1/8" thick black ABS with haircell texture.

I machined grooves along the bend lines and used a strip heater to make the bends. The edges where the walls meet are chamfered so they match up pretty well. I'll probably have a go at welding them water tight myself with a Harbor freight hot air welder. The area around the drain hole will be heated and formed down so the lip of the fitting is flush. The other holes are for the toilet and the three along the back are vents to blow out sand. May need to enlarge those a bit. The pan will be glued to the floor and sealed/caulked to the walls. The Hepo waterless trap will go crosswise towards the grey water tank located behind the rear tire on the opposite side.

ABS bathroom/shower pan glued down. Nice to know I can still haul pavers in the bathroom, ha ha.

The cardboard tube in the corner is wedged against the ceiling to hold that corner of the floor down

Fabricated HDPE grey water tank test fit success. The tank is just tacked together and needs to be finish welded. Hangers and support frame coming up. The black water tank will be opposite hand (mirror) on the other side.

Great build out, what type of skid plate or guard will you use to protect those tanks when driving up steep or dificult terrain. I've scraped my tail many times and whenever Ive had my rig towed.
