Default modified Wanderer build

I started this build about 9 months back and had to stop because of health problems and have recently decided to try to finish it! so far I have replaced wheel bearings, cleaned and painted the frame, sealed the floor top and bottom, and framed the side walls. next I plan to install side walls, frame the ends and roof then skin it. then I can do the wiring and interior.
