Hey all!

My Name is Dave.

I just joined this forum.

Having A Class B RV is where I'm headed, not where I currently am.

I picked up a 2003 Dodge LWB (127") Conversion Van.
Automatic, 5.2 (31, A/C front and Rear, Cruise, dual airbags, 4 wheel disc, ABS.

The unit has 103,000 miles on it. It is straight but has a fair amount of "Road Rash" on it.
Key chips, rock dings, sticks falling and of course some fading paint!

It has the low conversion high top, 14-16" or so. One cannot stand fully erect inside, there is but 61 1/2" of head room.

The clear coat on the Fiberglass is shot.

There are two rust spots just in front of the rear wheels.

All in all, I'm quite happy with it. I am thrilled that it does NOT have a reciever hitch on it, this tells me it was only a people hauler and not a cargo trailer hauler. This gives me hope for a gently used drive train.

At $2,500 I got a good buy.

Anyway, I'll post a build thread and share my ideas of where I Want to take this unit.










Thanks for looking!

Dave

I am liking it. You can arrange the inside however you like. It will make a great stealth camper van. Search youtube videos for ideas. (Stealth Van)

Stealth camping is the act of secretly camping in a public or private area (sometimes legally sometimes illegally) and moving on the next morning without being detected.

Familiar with Stealth camping, thanks for defining it though.....

Yeah, that's my thought exactly. I can build to my needs.
Crude paper drawing (to scale) and post-it-note furnishings.

This is where I'm headed.......
