Ha! I don't think this one's as bad as Rusty.. but there is some rust.

Plus I think this is poorly designed, it kind of hangs low under the frame just waiting to catch something. I think this van needs a 4x4 conversion to give it some lift.

There's your problem right there. I think the refrigerant might be leaking out.

Meh, that could be it. Who knows? I'm not convinced

I freakin' wish! 4x4 is a few years down the road for me...at least. I'm gonna try to enjoy this little one for a while first. Gotta convince the GF that we need a better one but she only saw this one, in person, for the first time today...from across the street. She said it looked "cute". We'll see what she says after Labor Day camping LOL!

Freakin' money pit cost me $432 today alone just for little stuff like new cabinet hardware/hinges, extinguisher, switches, wire, connectors, etc. I had better days when we owned an actual boat. Geez.

As of today, my Excel spreadsheet tells me that I have put $9,185.67 into the SMB in 18 months, not including diesel, my labor and busted knuckles. But at least everything is working properly, the engine has gotten enough TLC for a while, and I have all the upgrades I need (but not all that I want).

Think of it as a boat with wheels.

Better yet, grin and bear it. You'll get a lot of smiles to the gallon.

Thankfully, I suck at Excel. I'd rather not know anyway.
