Thanks, JC. To omit the hatch, I’ll fill the pre-cut grooves with epoxy and cover with a black stripe. The same approach to a door seems possible, but you’re right. The second door also adds cross ventilation and a safety margin in case of fire. I’ll build both doors, but I’m still debating the hatch. My primary goal is more interior space.

What do you think of omitting the galley flat and bulkhead entirely, as suggested in the first post? Does the bulkhead bear weight on top of the shell, like a racked boat? Would the shell hold its shape without the bulkhead? With no galley or bulkhead  (or the minimal pieces above), a hatch makes the camper useful for hauling things.
