Does the Mossberg 590 receiver, or any of the other action parts, have any issues?
Some reviews have suggested the aluminum parts are less durable than some other brands.
Just curious, as I'm in the market and browsing several manufacturers, Mossberg included.

That is an interesting build. The bed definitely takes most of the available space. Any plans for a fridge or cook top?

The Mossberg receiver is stout enough for continuous military use. Some chose to replace the plastic trigger guard with a metal one; but there have been no failures of the plastic part either. Our Mossberg won't see as much use in my lifetime, as one of the military issue shotguns receives in their first year. The aluminum receiver is a non-issue, when choosing a defensive shotgun. The two contenders are the Remington 870 & Mossberg 500 and their sub-models.

I should have added I like the use of space. Nice way to conceal the various systems and still have
room for some "essentials" when on the road.

I considered a Mossy 500 Tri-rail Tactical or SPX model. Also looked at the 590 series and had also
looked at their semi-auto 930 models.
I looked at the Remington comparables, and then when I visited a gun shop in New York State
and talked to the proprietors, they suggested the Benelli M2 Tactical as the Cadillac of autoloaders.
So, I'm just waiting for our ineffective long gun registration system to be repealed by the new
majority conservative government, and then am planning a shopping trip south of the border to pick
one up. I may also order a US Rifle M1 (known more widely as the Springfield Armory M1A) as my other
target choice in a center fire rifle. The Remington 700 series is my first leaning in long range target
shooting rifle in a bolt action.
