    How are the plastic panels attached to the camper? Double-sided tape?

    subbed. I am 6'0 and always sleep with my GF and 2 dogs. I am concerned with the wedge style if we would all be comfortable at night.

    Do you have any videos of opening/closing?

    Looks good. You are probably going to want to add more of a flap on the bottom of the lift up hatch though to keep water and dust out. This is an example of the seal that ARE uses although honestly it's not that great. https://www.custompickup.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=3459 A heavier piece of rubber would work better.

    Found some 6” wide self adhesive Velcro loop on eBay.

    So using that to finish off the bed “walls” and above the abs panels in the bottom section of the camper. 59A96334-4956-4217-B54E-1EFE79FF2D9D.jpg3399A62A-F336-4002-8E3A-685DE913C7ED.jpgF2CD5133-5F15-4C60-B707-78B40B34B7B8.jpg

    Yes, the 6" Velcro adds a nice finish. And I guess you can add hook Velcro to stick anything to the loop surface.

    BTW - I put a deposit down on my OVRLND camper in July. The delivery is in early March. Can't wait. Watching your camper being built and your subsequent finishing touches is informative.

    You'll enjoy it. I talk to Jay a lot and we are working through many small thing with the camper about interior/exterior add ons. Next "big" camper specific mod will be gas lift struts to help lift up the roof. I am considering adding velcro to part of the ceiling to make a "cold" weather package like four wheel campers for the fabric part of the camper, currently that is the only thing not insulated.

    Im trying to finish the interior in a utilitarian style. The last thing to figure out is the ceiling. I am trying to decide between abs, or even some stick on wall finishings to "cover" up the insulation and make it less able to be punctured with random camp stuff.

    Looks good. That wide Velcro is versatile.

    Finished up the lower portion of the camper with Velcro and carpet cord covers to hide the taillight wiring.
