Yes, I sold it via CraigList in about 10 days. I think the biggest selling factor is that the living area was only around 16 feet (18.5 bumper to bumper). The couple bought it for the wife to drive.

From an Estate, I bought a 1990 Explorer Xtra Class B Van (B250). The condition of it is awesome.

I am tinkering around with it today. It does not have the manual for the stove, fridge battery etc. Would anyone happen to know where the propane tank, hot water heater and cabin battery may be at?

I have not looked closely as yet as I had to get my satellite radio hooked up first.


I have looked all over the web and cannot find the RV manual for this.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Here is a picture and I do not think it does it justice.

82 Midas Class C

1982 Midas,This is the before picture, am currently giving her a total facelift. Bought for $2900 a year ago and have probably put that much in mechanical and interior remodeling work but she runs perfectly now. Only 77000 miles on the engine after several great trips since I've owned her.

The 'before' doesn't look all that bad. You'll have to post some of your after shots.

interior photos

I basically ripped out everything and started from scratch. The kitchen area is not finished, I built the uppper cabinet, extended and tiled the counter and installed the sink. I also built the dinette, I make it into a bed while traveling for the dogs to ride on. Bought foam and sewed the covers and curtains. Found the dresser new for $20 because a bottom drawer was damaged. Just cut it down to fit. My TV sits on top. I have retiled the floor since these pics were taken.

Thanks for the pics. You are making great use of materials and recycle.

Enjoy safe travels with you and your companions. They look like a group of very happy campers.
