Any idea what the weight is now vs stock?
Looking forward to the finished product.
PS. DO NOT TORCH

As silly as it might sound, one of the big things that was bothering me was the drawer in the kitchen. It didn't slide in and out well, it would never set flush... all in all it just felt like a hack job and it's bugged me on every trip I've taken thus far. While I liked the notion of retaining the original plastic drawer, it simply wasn't cutting it as a solid foundation so I decided to replace it with a new drawer made from scratch:
I replaced my cheap aluminum rails with drawer glides and now have a drawer that I'm actually happy with.
Another small project that I knocked off the list was getting finished floor installed in the rear section of the camper:
Still lots left to do, stay tuned!

If I had to guess I'd say somewhere in the 1,200 lb. range. There are a few truck-oriented gas stations within about an hour of me that have CAT scales, now that the camper is relatively complete on the interior I'm hoping to take it over to one of them to get an actual weight just to satisfy my nerdy curiosity.

Now as I was looking at your pictures, I noticed that you are still pulling the wheels off. Figure you have deed restrictions that keep it in the garage? Maybe you could come up with a caster arrangement that would support it closer to the axle - or at the axle. Dennis
