Pops with Roof

December 12th, 2008

The popup mechanism works great with roof on.    The roof weighs maybe 200+ lbs — my DeWalt drill drives the winch just fine.     With solar panels, the canvas and interior lights on it should still be no problem.

The 2×4 cross braces are there because I don’t fully trust the lift mechanism to stay up.   I don’t have a way to keep it locked up yet and am just relying on the worm gear of the winch not liking to be driven from the load.

    Nice work on the camper conversion!

    Been following the progress for a while and its fun to to see all the inventions you put into this build.

    Cheers
