Where are you located? You can get cro-mo tubing from mcmaster carr or at your local metal supply house. I used DOM seamless tubing....forgot the wall thickness...probably in my build thread.
Yea I couldn't believe the price when the guy at the yard told me. He thought it was some homemade contraption.
I am located near tampa Florida and already have account setup at a metal dealer. I saw in your thread the tubes you used were 0.75 OD and 0.65 ID.
I already ordered a new seal and taillight from sports mobile. Got a quote from a marine upholster around here and it only going to cost me about $1100 to get a new tent made. Good news is I get to pick the color. I figure by the time I raptor it and replace all the hardware I'll be in it about $1600. I'm taking the whole Van from Florida to Alaska (FL to AK hence the name flakwagon) after the new year so extra Insuilation is a must.
