    Hi Scotty - looking at your pictures of redoing a SMB top. We're trying to find someone around here to do ours. The first owner glued solar panels down & they are peeling as is the clear coat. Do you refinish tops or did you just do yours? The pictures make removing the top look a little tricky. Also, what did you replace the interior roof material with? We personally don't have the garage height to do this inside and found one body shop that does RV work but of course they've never seen a SMB - we're in CT. Laura

    Looking for your opinion on your Truck fridge. How do you like it? Opinion on electrical usage? How well does it maintain temperatures especially during summer weather? I am looking to replace my Domenic and leaning towards the Truck vs Isotherm and Vitrfrigo. Thanks for your input past and present.

    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. :-(
