It's a happybuy from Amazon. 5kW . With the remote start. It was somewhere around $135 - $150 I believe . I flipp'n love it so far..  it comes with a 10L plastic fuel tank. Totally fine. But opted for a green jerry can I have permanent all mounted on the back bumper. The heater kit. Comes with a little " bulk head  so you can tap into any tank . Whether it be the plastic tank they supply , or in my case.  The jerry.

Oh and it's very compact for the heat it can do.

I think it was something like 15" long 5.5 " wide and 6 or 7" tall. From its floor plate.

At one point . I just wanted to see how hot I could get it in there. Through all efficiency to the wind    It was 92 in that little camper and out side was something like 20 or 22 . This last January. 

I had 2 buddies stay in the truck for a week and half. This January And they lived in it every day and night. Street bumming it. Around upstate NY and NYC. It cost them I think $14 in diesel fuel. To live comfortably. 

For some real life perspective

Sad news. Dang wind caught us off guard. 2 days ago. I was in the middle of replacing the canvas. And that adds stability to the whole topper .

Long story short. The only thing that's trashed really are the 4 slides that's the 'X' bracing uses to . Go up and down. Same idea as a drawer slide but much more heavy duty.
So you guys know anyone who is parting out a chinook lol. Or have slides as an idea or retro fitting,  let me know !

Thanks for the tip on the heater. I was looking at Webasto but they are over $1000. too bad about the hinges. I'm sure you can use this as an opportunity to improve things.

5/16 " bolt grinded down on 2 sides to fit into the puck. And not interfere with the slide ability

Cut the old brackets from the trashed original slides. And welded them to these new ones.

They're made of a high density plastic type . Same stuff bullet proof vest, fishing line, and prosthetic joints are.

Originally when looking for replacement slide rails .for the originals. I was looking at $300 - $400 .and was still going to require retro fab work.

Finally found the company 80/20 . Which is basically legos/ erectorset for grownups. .
And the liner bearing slides. And the 60" x 3" x 3/4" aluminum channel cost me $90 after shipping . Which was $20.

And cut the 60" into 4 15" slides.

And done.

Will hopefully be installing this all next weekend

So I looked into getting a 5'x10' sheet of FRP board for the ceiling (that thin fiberglass sheeting you can buy at home depot , but only comes in 4x8 )

Found some for only $70 ! BUT with $130 shipping and only coming from 3 to 4hours away .

And with this Corona going around,  I've been quarantined at my place of work.

So instead . I'll use the 4x 8 sheets I do have .from lowes a few months ago And headliner fabric the ceiling. For $50 . Once the fabric get in this week I'll try and install the new fabricated slides  and wrap the ceiling all in the same weekend.

I work in the industrial automation world and found another company that makes a product similar to that 80/20 extruded aluminum. It is called TSlot and they are out of UT. I have seen it used for Machine Guarding in industrial plants and Structure for pieces of equipment or conveyors.

Good note thanks

Sorry I never got any pic of the putting the panels in. But basically used some flush mounting wood screws,  really small. Like an M6 size diameter by maybe ⅜ length of screw .

And took a ⅜ drill bit and drilled out some fiber glass but being careful to not drill all the way through the 1/16" panel. Just enough for the head of the screw to actually seat in. And really be a "flush mount" .

Did this about 20+ places through out the ceiling.

And as you can see there a little bit of ramp up in the ceiling just infront of the forward flush lighting . .

I was able to get that shape. By taking a torch to the fiberglass panel along that line. And flex it to have that new crease rather than be flat.
I over creased it . Then when I had it all screwed in. I took the torch that same crease and let is relax to its final shape.

Put some duct tape over all my seams where the panels came together  and then rolled on the headliner. Which was very easy. But a little more delicate than I'd like. We'll see it does.

But that all cost me $150 start to finish with the new fabricated slides. And ceiling job.
I'd day pretty worth it

R3.3 rigid foam board insulation. 
Just one 4x8 sheet by a " thick did the trick. There were some bare spot along the edges . But this wasnt that critical, just a little something compared to the nothing it had before.  Helps with stiffening up the whole roof and even a bit with sound.

How the lift works .

Fyi. I had to replace one of the springs. But incase anyone reading this thread needs to know. A 160 lbs garage door spring from home depot. Cut to size. Works as a good replacement.  I couldnt find another alternative.
