I've worked in the RV industry for over 20 years, so you'd think I'd have seen enough caravans/motorhomes/5th wheelers. (and their unhappy campers)
But no, I've gone and modified one I bought from Shep (rodbuster340)

Heres the bed. Foam mattress/ blanket, foam wrapped in masking tape for the pillows & the sheet.
On the outside, BMF'd the window frames, added roof hatches & and a fridge vent. Scratch built 2 rooftop AC covers, based on the Dometic ones I know so well.

Glazed the windows, scuffed the tyres and it's done.

EDIT. Sorry, no pictire. Back to the drawing board.................

Glad you got it figured out. Love the RV. There should be some stuff laying on the bed, maybe a Coonskin cap.
