Cry me a river Jage--what's a little explosion?

I've been smelling anti-freeze for a few weeks now. I had visions of leaking EGR coolers, headgaskets, heater core (it was bad when I ran the heater) etc. Looks like it was only the fitting for the Espar coolant heater.

Deep in denial--the water's fine, come and join me.

Well, for some layouts I can see how it would be nice to have flat walls on a high-roof.

But... how do you get into the driver's seat without going outside?

Re: Saw a new Nissan Van

I was holding saving my opinion until I saw pictures of the interior.

I know this is SMB 1st conversion of the Nissan van, but I'm not impressed. The interior seems to be too small. More of a Mini Sprinter van.

Definitely not and alternative to a Ford or Chevy.

Hi;

Methinks one vaults over the centre console making good use of the raised ceiling!

Regards,

Re: Saw a new Nissan Van

Oddly boxy inside with those square walls.

There has got to be some benefit apart from building, however I've never said "Man, if these walls just weren't curved...."

Shower maybe. If you wanted a built in shower this might be the platform.

Re: Saw a new Nissan Van

yeah, built in... like build the whole van inside your house so the rest of us don't have to look at the ugly (fill-in-the-blank)

Re: Saw a new Nissan Van

I saw one at SMB-W Tuesday that didn't have a top on. It was a low profile vehicle. No bling but didn't look like the one's with the fixed forehead type top. SMB is gonna put a pop top on. I wonder what a lifted rig with a pop top would look like? Anybody do photoshop? Sorry I didn't take my camera.
