A New Member - GREAT Site

A hi to all,

We came across this wonderful site while researching Sportsmoble. Our van is a 2000 Chev Express Extended and we are going to add a penthouse this spring. We visited the Huntington plant this last week. Pictures our rig are posted on "my album" ... I think if you click on my name "LenS" you will go there. If not that way you can get to them via the "Memberlist" button.

Just the kink of info I have been looking for.

Welcome, and nice to have you aboard. It's especially nice to have a Chevy based rig here for a little more variety.

Your gallery can be accessed via the Gallery button, directly below your signature.

Welcome, and thanks for all the great pictures (I still haven't posted any of our rig). I am impressed by how much you've managed to get into that van, and how efficiently it's designed.

Thanks,

It is great to be here. A real wealth of information.

I just added photos of our visit to the Huntington SMB plant. We wanted to talk to them about a penthouse addition to our van and how much of my existing stuff I needed to take out prior to the job.

When you were there did they mention that a fixed top would give you more storage?

No they didn't bring it up. We told them we were interested in the penthouse and that was all they really showed us.

We have a canoe we still want to take with us and we think the penthouse makes the most sense for us.

Oh, I think the penthouse with the electric lift is the bees knees, just looking at your actual van I though more storage might be a draw to the fixed top.

Jage, where on earth did a young feller like you learn to cite the bees knees? That phrase was current in MY dad's day, when a "camper" was somebody who hauled a tent around in a Model A. Yes, I know I'm .
