So the frame is complete. Painted and prewired. Started the subwall and these will be covered with an aluminum sheet and polished to resemble an old Airstream although the shape is more like a vintage 70ís Shasta.

I got a couple of windows coming in today so I'll get those outlined and cutout and fit up.  For now I got the door window.  I used a small 6" porthole that you find on boats.  I like this because I can leave it open and not worry about Pupley jumping out.

I just cut out on each side for a window measuring 16" x 14".  It has a permanently installed screen so I don't have to worry about my littlest dog jumping out. 

Here you see the door just sitting in it's slot and the window taped up for display right now.  so far it's looking good. 

Next I move on to putting in the crossmembers and making a frame for the rear facing window.  It also is a port hole but rectangular with an 5" x 11" opening.

Damn, those puppies are definitely not going to get claustrophobic with all those windows

Not at all.  The top will be on a hurricane hinge which is nice cuase it's waterproof/rainproof but it can slide off easily.  So when around town I can slip it off and they will have the whole roof open.

So far I got all my windows cut out and started adding cross members for the walls and started working on the roof.  I'm waiting on a 12v solar powered chrome vent.  Will keep fresh air inside the trailer moving although it does have 4 windows but you can never be too safe. 

next task are figuring out where my wiring is going and how to finish off the edges of the lower body and lid with edge trim so it looks good and is waterproof. 

On a side note I may have to go back to square one on the axle position and move it a few inches further up.  I feel my tongue weight is going to be about 8-10 heavier than I want...still under what the recommended should be but since I'll load the front with my gear and have a small cooler I want to make up the difference with that weight.
