Here is my dad helping me. While this Motorhome does drive it has a few fuel leaks I want to fix first (Fuel pump leaks around the seams, carb leaks out of the bowl a little). So to be safe I towed it to where I can work on it. I wish my 66 had that Cummins. man I love driving that truck!





What's with the front wheel sticking out like that. It was not sticking out in your prior pictures.

Looks like it would be on a car dolly. It sure does look tiny behind the new dually.

HAHAHA!! Gotta love it. Nothing like a pickup to make your motorhome look small

Last time I went camping here in Idaho. On the way back down the mountain we found the way blocked by a big old dually truck and huge 5th wheel trailer. The problem was... as he negotiated a tight curve... he underestimated how tight that curve was (and was probably going too fast) and He allowed his trailer wheels get off the road and it about tore off the bed of his truck. Poor fella looked mighty sick as he watched his $$$$$$$ trailer dangling off the edge and threatening to take his truck with it.
We left shortly after the tow truck arrived and took the long way up over the mountain and down the other side.

Anyway, that little rig of yours would be just about ideal for that type of road.

Got to spend a little time today. Spent today doing checks on the mechanical/driving parts. Did an oil change, new fuel lines, new fuel pump. Top off all fluids (transmission works a lot better). One tail light socket needs rebuilt (gonna install newer LED taillights, less amperage and brighter), Reverse lights did not work. Started plotting/planning for the interior.

However it drives great, shifts well,headlights work and signal lights work!

Well I was able to get back to the coach for a couple hours this evening. I put the doors back on, cleaned up all the crap, tossed out the trash, took measurements. Looked at possibilities. I would say a rather productive few hours. May also have a new plan for the roof. It was a great day to really look at what HAS to be done and what I want to get done. The wiring is BAD BAD BAD. "Luckily" for me I have to tear down the ceiling and the walls so doing the rewire will not be that bad. First I will need to find a new converter. There is an original one in there, it just makes me nervous. There will be a few changes to the coach design to add a couple items, but for the most part it will be the same when I finish.

Anywho, here is a few pics.
Before













After














Fun night shot

A friend had a 67 Dodge Camper Special pick up that we drove from New Hampshire to Texas back in 1996 (easter). Had bought it new in 67. Gave no problems on the trip other than the mufflers fell off in New York going out to Texas. 383 auto with 4:10 gear out back. We towed a 55 Dodge on a trailer back from Texas. 16.5 inch split rims on her. Family still has the truck.

Sweet!! I have the splits rims. I am getting rid of them, they scare me. Plus no one around here will put tires on.
