If it's cheap enough I'd buy it and and do some modifying :D I just saw a high-top in a small used car dealership today. It was off in a corner and looked like a possible cheap fixerupper.

I wanted to bring the flame pattern in closer for small containers. It does what I need and I was lucky bending it (it's even and the pot sits level). I should call it the VenomX stove ;)

Update:
I found an old Santana "Turtle Top" camper van for sale for cheap. Looks just like this one:

Yes, Its Uncle Rico's van from Napoleon Dynamite. I cant resist... I'm thinking about taking the axles and T case out of my 4x4 and making the turtle top a 4x4. Heck its even got a 2 burner stove, a sink, a fridge and a small sh*tter....

I'll look stupid as hell tooling around in a van like that.... But I can't resist it!!!

Looks cool, first time I've seen one with so much overhang. Kinda turtleish :mrgreen:

It's got all the amenities, go for it and get a photo up so we can see it in the "before" state. ;) After you put the 4x4 in, put a winch on it to make it look
"tactical" and trail worthy 8-)

WELL... Its been eventful. I wanted a LWB camper van to convert to 4wd, or "camper-ize" my 4x4 van using the parts from the camper van.

I got side tracked.... :D

I bought this 1989 B150 Shorty instead for real cheap. It's got 91K on the clock and it runs/drive great. I still want to buy a camper van.. Looks like I'll have three vans soon. ... :roll:

soon you'll have one for every day of the week :mrgreen: Keep looking, if they are cheap, grab em.

couple weeks ago I bought another alcohol stove off ebay for 5.00 A double burner, unpressurized, combo electric/alcohol. The day I got it in the mail I cannibalized it into alcohol only. photos will come when I get settled from this weeks Halloween camp-out.

I've been thinking about trying out one of these Origo stoves you love so much...
