I was thinking about the use of a Peltier module for the major advantage of 12v power requirement, but it has low efficiency. Ten I started thinking about adapting a car A/C, but that it is kind of complicated.
Now I am considering a portable A/C, but it will run only when hooked up to shore power, and it’s BTU rating is way to high for the camper volume.
Still work in progress.
The cabinet is screwed in place through the galley flat, from the sleeping compartment, so it does not go anywhere. Inside, it is packed to max, so the contents do not have space to swing around while driving.
The 3-in-1 cooking station has a heating element of 1000W in it. So far I used it only in camps with provided power, but I plan to install an inverter too. I am liking it, although it cooks slower than I am used to.
Here is what I came up withJanuary 11, 2022 at 7:59 am in reply to: Glassing inside doors and hatch, is there enough fiberglass? #4108
JB, that is interesting, I had enough fiberglass cloth to glass the underside of my cargo box, and had a few pieces extra.
I did not glassed the inside of the doors, or galley hatch – big mistakeJanuary 9, 2022 at 4:40 pm in reply to: Plans for Designing your own Cargo Space Under CLC TD #4104
If you are, or find yourself in NW Pennsylvania, you are welcome to stop by and look at it.January 9, 2022 at 4:39 pm in reply to: Plans for Designing your own Cargo Space Under CLC TD #4103
Twice now I replied to this thread, but it does not show 🙁 perhaps the third time is a charm.
Water intake is on the side.
Water outlet (shower) is in the corner under the mushroom vent, with a 12v pressure activated pump behind it.
I used silicone caulk to seal the camper on the box, because it can be easily taken apart if need be.
Once the camper is placed on the storage box, the water tank becomes sealed, no access to it.January 9, 2022 at 10:31 am in reply to: Plans for Designing your own Cargo Space Under CLC TD #4099
That is exactly what I did.
The CLC cargo carrier is 9” tall, too tall for my likings, so I built a cargo box of 6” height. It offers plenty of storage space without the uncomfortable height of the kitchen galley.
The box is made of 3/4” cabinet grade plywood, with epoxy fillets on all joints, finished with three layers of epoxy for waterproofing. The underside got a layer of fiberglass cloth for reinforcement, although I think that was overkill.
All hardware is marine stainless. The front compartment (larger) has access from both sides, without any dividers. Makes for good storage of camping chairs and table.
Middle compartment, above axle, between wheels, ends up sealed once the camper is put in place. I am using it for a water tank, so I can have hot showers off the grid.
Rear compartment, with access from the rear, is used for the water pump and shower connection, and majority of it is used for all the kitchen gear, since it seats under the galley it gives easy access to all that.
I still have trouble with water intake on rainy highway trips, so that is work in progress.
To attach it, I just used 10” carriage bolts from camper floor, through storage box, through trailer frame.
My point exactly Wayne, I have he beer shelf, now I need to put some drawers to store some beer-nuts, or chips, to go along with that beer 😉
Now I am waiting for you to show us how the drawers worked, perhaps I will install two of them in my camper 😉
If the clearing turns out to be too small for a decent-depth drawer, you can always use those supports to install a sliding breakfast table. It comes in very handy on a rainy morning – I can tell from my own experience.
Arjen, that is a sweet project going on, will you put some wood in it for the interior dividers?
Also, would you be interested and willing to weld a water tank for my camper?
Looks good, been there myself this summer.
@Gene, no, I have not. Life took over the fun projects, and I did not got a chance to work on the camper.
@marieokay – no, I have not uset the drill-fill-drill method. I just smeared some clearcoat inside the holes.
It was fun, Wayne3676 and I swapped stories an improvement ideas. Now I have plenty of plans to work on over the winter.
