Regards
Dometic 9500 electric!

Its leagues better. good to about 20mph, and no legs. no winding so good to go

Okay, I have to ask now - are those welds you've shown TIG or with the SpoolGun??? If TIG, impressive - if SpoolGun, gah dang wizard.

Concept and execution is perfect. However, the appearance isn't....elegant. so I will readdress it and see. Using this week to set up the garage fab shop, which leads me to!

Bit the bullet and decided to invest a large chunk of money into my home shop. This plus a large order of other gear (bandsaw, sander, grinders, other tools etc) should be here wednesday
And that brings me back to current!
This weekend we are at the Florida Tiny House festival hanging out with a bunch of other van peoples!

Nice pics. Who makes the moto rack you’re using? And I apologize for my laziness but what front bumper receiver hitch do you have? Thanks
