    New windshield?

    Picked the FG from the storage lot today and windshield has multiple cracks with no obvious cause. Anybody had particularly good luck with a company which replaces FG windshields in the US or Denver?

    Costway Fridge

    I posted this in the Edgestar thread but I thought I'd start a separate thread since Costway now seems to be one of the least expensive fridges out there. It appears to be a generically branded Smittybilt fridge since the Smittybilt transit bag fits it perfectly...

    Insurance question

    I've got a 1995 Northstar TS1000 on a Fuso FG with service body. Up until recently I've had it insured as a motorhome. However I recently had a roof hail damage claim on the camper and once the adjuster came out and viewed the truck and camper American Family said it would no longer insure the...

    Northstar TS1000 comparison on different versions

    We have a 1995 Northstar (Texson) TS 1000. Since I got some insurance money for dents in the roof from hail, I decided to look at a 2002 model for sale locally. Couple of things surprised me. It had a north/south bed as opposed to an east/west bed. This added 18"+ inches to the overhang...

    Fuso key blank

    Spent about an hour at the locksmith yesterday while he searched for the correct key blank for my 99 Fuso FG. He ended up using a blank from a Dodge Colt which worked fine although the overall key length is shorter than the one which came with my truck. This is no surprise since the Colts...

    Vinyl window repair Northstar TS1000

    One vinyl window on our Northstar TS1000 had ripped away from the stitching at the corner. It's a general problem on our camper since I think the vinyl was sewn just a little too short on the corners on most windows. So I ordered a yard of 12 gauge tinted vinyl from Ebay and went to work. In...

    Saviem TP3 for sale It showed up on my Facebook feed. First I've ever heard of a Saviem TP3. Looks interesting and the price is reasonable if you could bear the thought of owning a Renault. I almost bought a Renault Dauphine when I was a teenager and have since...

    Fuso air filters

    Someone mentioned on here that OE Fuso filters flow better than aftermarket. Since I have a vacuum gauge/filter minder on my air intake and had a new aftermarket filter installed I decided to experiment. Got a new OE Fuso filter and took pictures of the gauge with the aftermarket and Fuso...
