I work well this weekend I enjoy having a scaffolding to remake the roof. dismantling of both air conditioning, television antenna, and plastic protection of the lanterns. clogging of the opening with nice aluminum sheet and storage of the site. I am happy with the result, I find the vehicle line much purer.

Hi Steph27,
Very nice done - looks pretty. I'm in a similar position as you four years ago - I'm looking for a AS 290 and have some on the radar. I'm sure I will come back to you with questions, also as we are neighbors and need to follow European standards (change of tires, LPG-system 110->220V etc.).
On your last pictures you showing the AS in a car port. The highest on your AS is the spot light (I also plan to remove everything else from the roof). What is the height of your car port entry? I'm just in a stage to plan this piece next to my house.

Going to an apex roof will give you more height.....

Bella only has FanFantastic roof vents (no roof-top AC) and in the UK the highest point of the structure has to be under 4m but she clears the collar tie (the timber that bridges the rafters) with around 10cm to spare with the vents open. However the wall plates (the timber on which the rafters sit) is also (just) above the roof and so I can place a ladder/platform between the wall plates and work above Bella.

If I would start again the one element I would include would be a 'pit'. Growing up in the UK everyone knew at least one person with a pit in their garage and they were the most popular person as any chassis/steering/suspension work could be done by driving across the pit. Now-a-days under below ground construction needs special permission and construction to prevent contamination of the ground....I thought this was too much of a hassle but now I can only dream of being able to simply walk around below Bella and check everything out.

[QUOTE=martin300662;2403407]Going to an apex roof will give you more height.....

Hi Martin,

Thank you for the ideas and advises - very helpful. The reason why I'm asking about the height, in our city carports (w/o local approval required) could go up to three meters but this would be difficult to meet. I see that 290 are 2,81m without the A/C. The question is, are the 2,81m with or without the spotlight.
On the other hand, our authorities here are more relaxed about the pit and I'm going to put one to the carport.
