The camper top has been installed. It’s HUGE. Ridiculously, insanely ginormous.
Let me be clear. Fiberine did really good work, and I like the spacious interior that it provides. But looking at her from 30 feet away, all I can think is that Gypsy looks absurd.
The front view is probably the worst view. The pompadour shape looks oddly narrow. It’s really not as narrow as it looks—55 inches wide at the base.
I inadvertently asked Fiberine to create a sheet metal guillotine when I asked them to leave a little bit of a shelf in the rear to help support cabinets. This piece of metal is just thin enough to be completely invisible from a few feet away. I’ve already had a couple close calls.
I finally have easy access to that pesky rusty bolt. Tomorrow Gypsy will be getting a new pair of shoes (tires), before escorting me up to San Francisco again. That bolt is the first thing I’m going to tackle when I have a free moment. While I hem and haw about which windows to purchase I’ll try to make just a bit of progress by filling hollow channels with Great Stuff, having the rear A/C unit removed, and then patching up the giant hole left by the rear A/C. Baby steps, but steps in the right direction.
