Hey All. I was surfing the web today, and stumbled across this site, so naturally I joined. I own a 1982 Dodge 1ton Maxi camper van, built by Fun Craft. Has anyone heard of them before?? I've only owned it since last Oct/Nov. 2007, so I haven't really driven it yet. Just home from the dealership I bought it from. I am however completely gutting it, and rebuilding it, the way I want it.

Here are a couple pics.

That's a new name on me. I never heard of it but there are a lot of names I don't know. Many of the things you put in are the same brand as any other brand ie. refrigerator, toilet etc. then with the same chassie I really don't see a big difference between brands. Mostly floor plans and price is what I look for as long as it has the things I want.
Do a good job and hope it serves you well.

I will post them up in the appropriate location. I'm still in demolition mode. I'll post later, as I'm starving, and must get some food into me.

A word of advice, Don't throw anything you take out of the van away immediately.. If you have a place to store whatever you remove, it's Murphy's Law that somewhere in the refinishing process there will be some bracket, wire loom, or appliance tidbit you'll need and the price of such things will make you glad you had that "scrap pile"..

Best of luck with your project.
