I had one of these on a 5/4 ton Dodge when I was in the Army. The version I had was our missile repair shelter. We repaired missile guidance systems inside. I think it is actually made out of Magnesium rather than Aluminum so you have to be careful what material you work on it with. Use rivets and silicone sealant. They have a special paint that along with the material helps radiate heat so it is difficult to see with an infrared camera / scope. If you have a self focusing video camera aim it at the shelter and it will not be able to focus on the side. Also, it has a built in Faraday Cage for radio frequency isolation. Cool box for a small camper.

Well I spent the weekend cutting, gluing, screwing (not the good kind), and uhpolstering. Pretty much finished it up (still need to attach the back rests) but only got to take a few in-progress pics. Here's they are. I'll post more once the seating area is completely done.

Really nice, keep the updates coming!

I have seen some other s-250 builds but yours is my favorite, simple and practical. Will it be able to slide out using the dump feature on the trailer and a winch?

Nice job! Like your floor-mounted fire extinguisher detail in SketchUp, too I finished an S-250 conversion (as much as the're ever finished...) a couple years ago. I have mine mounted on a trailer and use it as my own Comms Shelter for amateur radio and CAP. They are awesome! PM me if you want to sell any of the items you took out; I might find a use for them in mine. Did you get one of those monster power cables for your AC hookup?
