    Like that solution. I have similar damage. What did you use to hold the map up? Is it a fabric map. Where did you get it ?

    Project Flift, a 1986 Four Wheel Campers Fleet shortening documentation thread!

    Just an update on the relighter: I took my first road trip with it installed, about 70 miles one way and back. I can't recall an instance where my frig stayed lit on a journey like that, but this time it did, on both days. So, so far, the relighter seems to be a good upgrade to a propane frig...

    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?

    First post. Looking for advice on my first truck and camper.

    We have a 94 Northstar. Owned it for 10 yrs. like it. In my view the weakness is the roof construction. All our seams are now sealed with Eternabond. Should have done that when we bought it

    Toyota HIACE diesel 4x4 5speed Space Shelter Camper

    I suspect the 'personal reasons' behind the sale include a preference for driving at interstate speeds.

    Dead in the water, well out of the water.

    Glad it was a simple fix. Any chance the failed fuel gauge was a result of the water crossing? I've been on this forum for about 10 years and I can't recall another post about a failed fuel gauge on here. Was the cause of the failure ever determined? What did you do to fix the gauge?

    Loud radiator fan on 2017 Fuso

    My fan clutch engages so infrequently that I couldn't figure out what was going on the first time it happened near the top of the climb to the Eisenhower Tunnel on a hot day. Shift down, go slower and it will typically disengage.

    So Bad, it's good, cool Mobile Traveler RV: 1980 Chevy Camper van - $5500

    One heads up on the Mobile Traveler. We owned a 1979 on a Dodge Chassis. Liked the general design but there was a flaw. The original frame had been extended to accommodate the living quarter. A flat plate had been welded to the end of the original U channel frame and the extension simply...
