Yeah, not a fan of the amount of head room but Ill get 4 actuator to raise the cap like a guy did on here at aome point. I got enough wood left to build the kitchenette to now, its gonna be a long drawer that slides out of the cap so you can cook in the back while the gf still sleep.. If I get one of those again hehe.

youll have to make some sort of wall system to attach to the top of the bed and the bottom of the topper. I'm imagine some sort of rubber or a tent material

I had a few Ideas already but I was thinking like a 3 piece of fiber glass with hole insert that match the one I make on the cap and bed... Raise the cap put each piece in theres spot, each side and the front then lower the cap back down like 2 inch to lock the pieces in and yes tent material in the back that also cover the kitchenette area. I posted a tent setup on here last week and it look like it would be best suited for it.

Haha being single has its perks, more money to spend on your hobby and more time to spend working on them unhindered .. The real prize is finding a chick who shares your passion for stuff like this
