Mostly I use it for my business: hauling lumber back to the shop from the sawmill, and delivering furniture and cabinets to clients. But I also built, pretty early on, a removable camper. Couch slides out into a double bed, running water, three-burner gas stove, small porta-potty, ceiling fan, satellite radio, swiveling passenger seat, side awning. Lots of storage. It takes us about two hours to set it up for a trip. We've taken it to the Smokies, to Labrador, to the Bruce Penninsula and to lots of music festivals. Always gets lots of attention.
Very euro classy with the cabinetry. Guess we can tell who the woodworkers / cabinetmakers are...

The rest of us just cover things up with Menard's low-grade exterior carpet.
