There is space provided for a small TV and a small microwave if required with most designs also incorporating an additional single bunk and shower. The designs incorporate some unique aerodynamic features, to reduce drag, and take into consideration weight and weight distribution. The camper designs and wiring diagram are also accompanied by a comprehensive 53 page publication covering topics like how to install optional extras such as an auxiliary battery, low voltage isolator, water pumps etc with explanations on the use and advantages of these appliances. Many other camper tips are also included. There is no frame work shown as this may vary depending on the materials used to manufacture the camper eg timber or metal.Electrical Systems:This information is mainly on the 12 Volt system which in simple terms explains how the system works and what various components are used for enabling you to design your own circuits.Alternative Energy:Explains the advantages and disadvantages of alternative energy including solar power, wind and water generators etc and how to determine which is the most efficient and effective method for your needs including connecting your system to the grid.
