Default Saying Hi

Steve here. I'm in West Virginia . Just found this forum. Will be getting one of these in the next few weeks.
Looking for a forum that is for these older camper vans. Seeing a lot of good here so thought I'd stick around.

Welcome aboard, that is a nice looking rig. Heck, we don't age discriminate, matter of we don't discriminate! The systems are usually made up with the same equipment. These folks here are the best at providing solid ground tech support and advice on "how to."

Default Well we never found A Class b we could afford

We did get a van though. Found an 88 Model E150 on Craigslist. Got her for $1,200. Drive it over 200 miles home and have been driving it every day since. Love it . Fixing to start the bed build on it in a couple days.




All we could afford but we are loving it. No rust and drives and runs like new.

The cabinet idea quickly turned into a sink basin after I found this clear water tank on Ebay.10 gallon.

Added a 12 volt pump and the pipe is the fill to the tank.

Then the top and front of the cabinet had to come back off.Added a 3 burner propane stove with oven.
