Default 2015 Dodge Ram 5500 Motorhome

I figured I better start a build thread on our project. The truck will wear AEV's new fenders, bumper and raised air intake soon.

We purchased a new 2015 Ram 5500 120" Cab to Axle, 4x4 single cab.



Installed a Kerlderman air ride suspension.



ITB Truck Bodies started with their standard shell built to our design.



Inside looking back



Back of my new truck cut out for walk through to camper.



Camper shell finally installed on chassis.



These are the Hutchinson wheels Dave suggested. Wrapped with Goodyear G275's.



Interior wired and spray foamed.

Here is the interior skinned with aluminum.



A start on the cabinets.



This will be home to the house AGM batteries.



DEF fill in front. Fuel fills for dual tanks behind.



Interior taking shape. This is rear to front looking at the bathroom on the drivers side.



Rear cabinets around the bed.



Bathroom vanity.



Tire lift

Wow. This is an amazing build and I can't wait to see the progression. Kind of has an Earthroamer look to it.

Cheers

I have enjoyed seeing the build so far in the other thread, and am looking forward to seeing the progression on this one.
