Re: I bought a camper (kinda)

Just checking in to see if steamjam has fixed the leak and is ready to go RV'ing :D Not only have I fixed the leak, but Ive been RV-in for the past few weeks.. Albeit rather minimalistic and cheap.

Re: I bought a camper (kinda)

How much did you have to lay out for the one you got? Are the rocker panels in good shape? show us what's under the hood :D Can you fit a hand along side the engine and firewall? :mrgreen: Is it leaking oil?
