    Ugameiger / "Doug" Build Thread

    Sorry to hear about the pup. Always hard to lose our travel buddies. Cool idea on the step plate!

    1999 F450 4x4 Ambulance Toy Hauler

    Ah, perfect then. Seen too many builds where the end isn't supported in the closed position and folks don't realize how much dynamic loads are place on things while driving down the road.

    1999 F450 4x4 Ambulance Toy Hauler

    Nice design and work. From a structural perspective, I would have liked to seen a bar on the backside that ties the upper vertical area to the end of the horizontal area. With the weight of the tire and that much leverage hanging out there, I can see the potential of that bending/failing at...

    Nice looking BAT Pinzy, currently under $9k

    Ah, didn't look through comments. You would think they would put that in the ad description. :unsure:

    Nice looking BAT Pinzy, currently under $9k

    So much want!!! Been wanting a 712 since first time in one, back in 2007. Interestingly, it looks like this was converted to some form of EFI and not the original carbs. Not talked about in the description.

    Cummins Canoe (A Stepvan Story)

    My guess, if they don't have one specifically for a 4BT, one for a 6BT would work, just not using all of the studs. That said, if the head or block is warped, it won't matter with studs or not.

    Cummins Canoe (A Stepvan Story)

    Agree. If you have having this much issues with head gaskets leaks, my guess is the head and/or block is warped. Another idea, which I have heard happening (not specific to the Cummins) is if the head bolts are stretched, they will never hold torque. I am not sure on the Cummins but I know...

    2003 Unimog U500 with Coachmen camper, BaT auction 5/31

    Yeah, really don't understand why people in the US put the camper door on the driver side. It has to be one of the dumbest ideas as it makes getting in and out when parked on the side of the road, a real pain and on a narrow road, dangerous. Is it so hard to get out of the drivers door and...

    Wool Insulation?

    From what I read, once you glue in Thinsulate, it's not going anywhere. Backing side faces to the inside of the camper, open fibers are what gets glued to the walls. Yeah, the Havelock just gets stuffed in, which is why it will compress/fall over time.

    Desert Turtle - M1010 Build

    Knocked out another small project on the camper. Installed the rear assist grab handle. Ended up using Riv-nuts installed into backing plates that were riveted to the door frame. Should be strong and allow for easy replacement should that ever be needed. Just by luck, the angle of the grab...

    Wool Insulation?

    I had considered the Havelock wool but doing a lot of research, it seems the couple common issues were the smell if it got wet and it tends to compress downward on vertical surfaces when bouncing around on rough roads. I decided to go with Thinsulate which does not have those issues. Ordered...

    Dometic Fridge, Advice Needed

    I replaced my Norcold (Dometic) fridge in my FWC with a NovaKool and it worked great for the 3-4 years I had that rig. I currently have another NovaKool sitting in the box, going into my current build. Been very happy with them!

    CountryRoamer (DIY Hard-Side Truck Camper) Build Thread

    If you don't need 4WD, a Skoolie is a good choice to build out. So many size options you can find the one that fits your needs. There are some really good builds on YouTube

    The MUSEROAMER is for sale - Earthroamer Style Custom Build

    Sorry to see this up for sale. I loved following the build and adventures this rig went on. Even my wife enjoyed watching (well maybe it was Kicker and not the rig). Good luck with the sale.
