Where to get info on Santana camper vans?

I just bought a 1979 Chevy Santana camper and I can't find much info on it. Are they still in business? Are camper specific parts available? A google search just comes up with some singer with the same name.

You should talk to Uncle Rico:

http://www.google.com/search?q=uncle+rico's+van [Edited: original site was flagged by my Norton - jage]



Slightly more helpful, there's a guy on vannin.com who had some scans from an old Truckin' magazine about Santana conversions. They're no longer showing up, but if you contacted the poster, you might have some luck.

Cheers,
Mike.

Uncle Rico's van used to be my neighbor in Riverdale, ID. They were filming when I moved there.

Kinda wonder if Rico was modeled after me: middle aged, no visible means of support and likes his van just a little too much. Hmm.

Santana wasn't a "singer" I think is what he means... how young are you?

Young enough. I could have driven it when it was new is all I'm sayin. Wasn't into music much though.
