So can ANYONE tell me how to identify my version of this Van?

And my Title just says its a Dodge 1988 B350 Van

Also the door frame label says 1987 but Title says 1988. I always get parts as an 88. Is that right so far everything has fit just fine.

Van wise, 87 and 88 are nearly identical. The van was built in the model year 1987, and the upfitter built it in the year 1988.

Your title is correct, it is a Dodge B350 van, the exact model is _probably_ a Maxivan.

Friendly note - you should start a new thread (new post) when starting a new conversation.

Thank you for the response. I'm sure your spot on.
I wish i would have gotten an owners manual . Or some scrap of paper.

Be nice to see one from Dogde, an one from Xplorer.

Whats funny is this very fourm is what sparked my interest in What is it.
In the start of this fourm there was talk of different models 221, 222, 230 an most were the same year as mine, or near it.

I'm gona go with its an Xplorer Xtra van 222
Which is a Maxi Van. I have no positive proof of this but untill the day comes i see one exactly like it. I guess this will do.
Thanks again

Below is mine with the girlfriends RV. We call them our adopted children.

Wow Love your camper. Lot's of similarities between ours. Biggest difference it your roof top A/C unit , mines in the side wall. That I hate.

You don't perhaps have any manuals you could share. I have absolutely nothing for mine, not a scrap to identify it.
Heck I'm still trying to figure out the Dodge heat / AC dash controls.

With today's advances in RV generators and solar panels, there is no reason to use a danger like propane.

Now, I know why boats don't use propane.


Don't be too unkind to propane. Propane is a popular fuel that provides lots of energy per pound. Why would you be averse to carrying propane while you are sitting on top of 35 gallons of highly combustible gasoline? Any energy source has potential for problems ( have you seen any articles of Tesla cars self-combusting?) Be safe with any and all potential energy sources.

+1

The current iteration of propane equipment is very safe.
The tanks are ASTM certified; you can never overfill them.
The lines, the unions, the valves, the regulators, have all gone through rigorous testing and certification before they can be offered for sale.

The tank is bulky. But the fuel is clean burning and convenient for the type of appliances we use in a RV.

I believe boats don't use propane because it is heavier than air. Thus, if you have a leak, the propane won't dissipate like gasoline; instead, it will accumulate in the hold.

That's why the propane leak detector in your RV is near the floor instead of high on the wall or on the ceiling like the CO and smoke detectors.

Most of the restorations/repairs i have seen online have replaced the OEM plumbing with PEX. Readily available and very simple to use with Shark Bite fittings. Running the piping is another story.
