Unconventional Changes

Who beside be has thumbed their nose at conventional RV systems and solutions and had it work out?

I broke a lot of RV rules when building my old Sovereign, that I would not post up on the forum as I was doing them because I knew there would be blowback..... Click image for larger version

Residential frig and toilet. What's the heater? Your trailer has been my instruction model. I love unconventional. Love your upgrades and wood interior.

The heater is a Williams 14,000 btu “direct vent” model. It rocks! I tried to break most every RV rule when building my trailer, five years in, so far so good!

Hmmmm... 🤔 but does that make you a rule breaker, or a rule maker? 😁

Just up too late at night surfing, couldn’t resist the title. Of course.

Didn't see this when you first posted it. I think our wood stove probably qualifies. Maybe the dishwasher.Click image for larger version

Fisher & Paykel dishdrawer. If you're interested in doing this yourself, note that the range above it is the shorter 17" model, not the usual 21" model.

One of my bigger transgressions might be how I stuffed 3 1/2” fiberglass insulation batts into the 1 1/2” or 2” cavity between the inner and outer skins. Yeah, it likely cost me some insulation value, but dude, my trailer is pretty quiet..... I don’t hear a lot of outdoor noises.

I don't know why more people don't do dishwashers. It saves so much work, and we use so much less water. We've been able to run it on our 400 watts of solar with just a 100AH AGM battery, sometimes twice in a row.

Probably a waste of space for occasional camping, but for full-time living, it's fantastic.
