I don't know if there's a market for it right now or whether it would be worth your while, but I see plenty of hints on Instagram as to what that niche could become. My husband (Airforums LB_3) and I are gradually upfitting our Interstate in ways that not many other folks have done, but of course our efforts are entry-level compared to what complete customizations are capable of achieving.



Anyway, I'm hoping you'll share more about how your experience unfolds, because I'm also one of the apparently-few people who occasionally uses an Interstate while actually earning a living (another is user glfprncs, whose husband uses theirs to travel as a professional golf caddie). There are different challenges involved with professional vs. recreational usage in such a small vehicle.

We bought a 40ft country coach when my wife finished her doctorate and hit the road with me. A few months ago her dad got a brain tumor so I headed to Elpaso for a job and she headed to St.Augustine florida to be with family. While she was in florida she got offered a great job that she loves so it was just me in a 40ft bus and it was kind of to much so when I got home last week we started looking at small A C's and B's. The interstate was the first B we looked at and It couldn't be beat for fit and finish. I pick it up tomorrow so hopefully all my stuff will fit hahahaha.

Thanks everyone for the kind words on our work we definitely live the dream. I pick the interstate up tomorrow then hit the road for at least a month. I'm also trying to finish up a truck for the SEMA show in Vegas its definitely been a busy month

John, they say the best camera is the one you have with you. Based on your portfolio vs. this cell phone pic, I'd have to argue with what "they say"....



Congrats on your new rig, and much respect for your photo talents.

There is s fascinating YouTube series that gives really crappy cameras to professional photogs to see how they do.

In the hands of an expert, the quality of the camera does not seem to matter too much.

You photo is very well composed, positioned, and angled. Shows off the new rig very well.

Just use one of the fancy filter apps in your phone and you too can take pictures like a professional. :-p

In your portfolio, you have a black antique car NB on U.S. 59 with downtown Houston as the backdrop. I'm torn... if I had to choose, I don't know if I'd want one on the Pierce Elevated or the Sidney Sherman Bridge. Pierce would be more dramatic, with Heritage Plaza in the background (my favorite skyscraper in America), not to mention Mr. and Mrs. former Enron buildings. IMO Sidney Sherman offers the best view of downtown, although it's probably too far away to make a good photo backdrop. But I make my living as an industrial consultant here, so I'm fond of that section of the Port, as gritty as it is (decades of good memories).

Point being, if you publish your future tour schedules, you might could pick up a couple of extra commissions during your travels.
