  • 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.

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

      Cheers

                      It went over this week to be painted inside and out. I am actually just waiting patiently at my desk refreshing my email as I was promised some pictures of it in the paint booth today. Hopefully I will have at least one photo to update by later tonight.

                        Paint progress

                        Doors all removed to be individually painted.


                        Living room looking back to the bedroom. Fridge and microwave holes on the left.


                        All wrapped up for interior paint. They are all done the interior now and will be switching over to exterior paint today.

                          This is great Ward! Must feel good to get to see the light at the end of the tunnel on such a big undertaking.

                          Have you considered getting the paintable grille and de-chroming the front end?

                            Merry Christmas. Does anyone know if the outer grill is available on it's own or do you need to buy the whole grill? I would like to change the grill to black and the center portion is already black therefore I just need the outer rim.
                            Thanks in advance

                              Yes you can buy the outer shell in a gloss black or semi gloss black (work truck package)
