    The roof has started sagging under the a/c unit. Half of the a/c is on new strong roof framing and half on the original camper framing. The camper framing ends at the wall with the circuit beaker box. I glued up a oak beam with a good crown in it. Ran it across from the bathroom wall to the front closet wall. It made a big difference.

    I have a truck camper and am thinking of having it mounted on the frame of a M1088.
    Any suggestions?

    I started with Photoshop to see how it would look. Then measure a lot. pay attention to clearance for the overhead. I had to set my camper on top of 4x6s to clear. But this gave me room for the water tanks. I don't know about your truck but the deuce has a lot of frame flex. If it is going to be off roaded make sure the camper and cab don't collide. I just chained the camper to the bed sides and had no problems. Don't forget to change your clearance bulbs over to 24volts or they will be real bright for a short time.

    AND most important. Post Pictures, lots of them.

    My frig is freezing on 110 volts so that's the next project. I want to repair it because I like having the vintage stuff.

    If any of you happen to have a wiring diagram for a Dometic RM 45 frig please let me know.
    Incredible works man, nice! My uncle and I will be looking at a M35A2 next week right after we finished installing the headache rack, oracle lights plus the incoming brake kit on the current truck project. My uncle will surely love the looks of your project.
