Hi all, what a busy forum this seems to be

My name is John, 34, and I am currently trying to make my old Midas roadworthy so I can use it for it's original purpose. Its 23' and has a small (20gal) LPG tank under rear bed.

I live in it, sometimes, which makes it a bit cluttered..

Engine wise , 350 Chevy
So far I have replaced - Powersteering/Brake pump, Removed Air pump, checked compression, rebuilt the Rochester, brought a new heater core, and added two electric fans in place of the stadard viscous one.

Inside, I have fitted a newer Heating furnace - SP30, I have replaced the hot water valve, and the water pump, I have added vinyl flooring, and sub divided some of the lockers with ply. Also added 3 brass downlighters as I had them lying around

Some things I am doing at the moment,
fitting a motorbike rack to hold a baby 250 kawasaki
Fitting a step up/down 110 240v tranny
Testing the genny (Never ran)
Gearbox and engine oil and filter change
adding/making a rooftop sat dish holder (may motorise it)
Adding a camera or two on roof
re-tinting windows
blah blah

have my work cut out !

anyway, hi there are not many older-rv owners over here..

pic, before I had it..

Also have a Honda VFR800 and a hydraulic suspension citroen diesel that runs happily on used fast food oil
