18mm mdf. Heavy but mine has less than two 8x4 sheets. So not too bad. Minnebago one had 8mm and 2x2 skeleton,but it was a smaller van.

What material are you using for the casings, how heavy is it? I'm thinking of changing my van for a hiace lwb with hi top for more space and room for the children. PS if only dogs had opposable thumbs:-)

Building an extension. Well it's like an extension. Ok so it's not an extension in the normal context. Well truth be told it's  not even an extension but it's like one. Building a bigger Minnebago.
It will be Minnebago 2. It's a swb vivaro,turbo nutter. Same principle as the last one.CHEAP.

Clearly there is something going about, and we suggest staying indoors until it pretty much goes away.

A charity called 4 Sight, West Sussex association for the blind.
My son Paul went blind around 16 years ago (dreaded Diabetes) and I slowly got roped in on various activities.
I now run a club called Mowolif (Men only women occasionally let in free) and am a fundraiser for 4Sight.
Also a helper on 4 Sight rambles, which I much enjoy..
I will be attacking you all later to sponsor me. It's only a 10k walk so be prepared to cough up..
Glad to be involved as I have a pretty busy life one way or another.
Kip.

Ps; There's that "pretty" again

I thought the name "The Slipper" was already dedicated to the TS3.
Kip  :)

The TS3 is the old mans slipper, the Otter is the new designer slipper  :D

This was the concept design for the Otter.

Of course this had to be compromised to turn it into a real craft, the main issue was the £25k it was going to cost to get a bespoke windscreen, and some issues to do with airflow at the stern.

I'll let you decide how well the concept translated into the real craft.

I think this manufacturer has copied the hovtec design :o

dont know why people dont start with screen from some thing else like tigra £65

Perhaps the virtual craft looks swoopier, but the actual craft exists! And that makes it the winner in my eyes! One thing I believe is obvious- the screen dictates the style and as such there must be a 3D curve perhaps rear screen out there to improve front end style. Also the real craft is off cushion giving it a crumpled deflated appearance. Turgid skirts are better. Lets compare virtual on cushion with real life on cushion. There would be little in it.
Graphics can work wonders and would be so easy to graft onto a digital image.
No need to change the hull, just alter the perception!
IF beauty is in its operational efficiency---- just think if she looked like sex in a skirt?  :o 💃
