    Can you link me to where you purchase yours from?

    Hey Scotty, I'm trying to finalize my build before a move to Bend, OR here shortly. Obviously heat is a major requirement for living in the van full-time and 1der mentioned you've installed the Planar heater. Curious what your impressions are, cost and anything else you think I should know. I have a '98 5.4 EB E-250 with a standard roof, so I'm currently comparing the Planar heaters with the Espar D2 and Webasto products.

    What brand and model of shocks did you use on your last upgrade? Have you ever used the Bilsteins?... Looking to upgrade my 1994 EB E350 4x4... Thanks for your time... Dennis...

    iathon, mine is not 4x4 at all but glad you thought so! Just a 2wd with bigger tires. I'm dreaming of a lift/4x4 conversion but hasn't happened yet.

    I ordered a seat swivel from 1der (ray) today and talked with him on the phone for a good while, man can that guy talk. We got to talking about all things sportsmobile. I'm looking to buy my house batteries for my build and he recommended I reach out to you and see if you know any good deals out there on factory blems or anything like that. I'm looking for a two AGM group 31s that I can mount on the frame rail below the barn doors.

    I'm in Chattanooga so not far from your neck of the woods.

    Feel free to write back here or give me a ring at your convenience if that's easier.


    I'm about to purchase batteries, separator/ACR, cabling, fuses, etc. for my main power source. Also on the verge of buying a frig.

    I just sent you a PM, but it did not go through. You have apparently exceeded your PM quota, and the Forum will not allow any more messages to to through until you clear some space. :-(

    Thanks for the response. I didn't see it until today; guess i didnt know where to look. I have an extended van so have enough room to haul it so will give it a try. At this point I have made the PVC piece so now I am trying to fabricate a rainfly. Thanks again.

    I do not have the dimensions. I used it one time but have not continued to use it. It's just too much to carry around. If I can find the pieces I'll be happy to give you size and more info, but it's basically just whatever you make fit out of PVC and a small window unit from Walmart, etc. I copied another guy who had done the same, it may be linked in that thread.
