Nice camper !

I am in the designing stage of building a foam board fiberglass pop up truck camper. Can I ask what thickness your foam board is and how you did or will attach the boards together? Glue epoxy etc. ?

Also what does your framing look like ? Aluminum or steel etc.

Thank you in advance
Tommy

It is more quiet than my previous camper (Northern Lite 6’10”) which I thought was pretty good.

It looks great - nice work! I'd love to see it in person some day if our paths ever cross. (I full time RV all over the US.

So how did the dry weight come out?

That would be great...

Finished shell weight with door and windows is 473 lbs. But that does not include the remote jacks which are another 125 lbs. I will be under 1000 lb dry for sure but not sure by how much. I put in lifepo4 cells just too make sure.
