    Thread: Building a Slide Out for My Mini Van Camper (how to frame?)

    1. 09-24-2018 01:10 PM #101
      My apartment has a storage dump for where I found the black wheels and extruded metal... the other wheels I had bought for my CNC gantry. My dad got the junction boxes when he bought some couch and the guy was emptying his garage.

      The sun has finally come up in Vancouver again... will be heading out to work on the pull out.

      Enjoy this one from the TV's projection mirror...



      Im going to use the plastic and speaker screen front of the TV as my pull outs bottom cover.

      Ive also been saving garbage bags full of cardboard egg cartons.
      I was thinking of using the curved back end of the TV as a mold to shape out a round cardboard mache piece as an attaching roof cover for the pull out.

      Your parents are the only thing keeping you from the "rat race" or living in that van as it sits right now. These "skills" you possess that few others have could best be put to use with a job making enough money to live on your own while you dream about leaving it all behind.

      And why on Earth would you share those pics of their yard you've literally trashed? It's all so confusing.
      Something witty will be in this exact spot soon.

      I go back and forth between "this is elite troll bait" and "this guy is for real . . . holy mother of god . . ."

      I am starting to think it's troll bait again.

      But this is truly elite level trolling that has spanned multiple years, if true.
