Thanks for the compliment! Sourcing an axle and then modifying would be ideal because it could be powder coated. But it would be a big job to swap everything over. I just did the mod while it was in the van. PM me and we can talk more.Awesome! Would you consider modding these? I would be happy to source/send you a rear axle to be modded and I would swap mine. My wife and I are road warriors and the drive from AZ to Idaho would be fun. That is one state I haven't been to. That rear bar is the only real thing I hate about this van. I guess I could hang some kind of rubber mat behind it to somewhat hide it. Like a large mud flap of sorts.
Either way, your fabrication skills are just stellar!
Did you get the fold out couches from a toy hauler too?It's been a while since the last update. I've been camping a few times now with the new heater and after sorting out a few things, it's been working well.
A couple of the issues was that the muffler fell apart and I had to weld it back together.
The tubes on both ends came out. Also, I put an intake filter on it and ended up ripping the guts out of it because it was constricted the air flow too much.
Lastly, I've got to source a new thermostat because the one that came with the heater is junk. It hard to read and use.
The other thing I've been working on has been my bed system. Here is what I've built so far. Still have to install the wood panels and doors.
The next step is to build the hammock/cot that hangs above the bed for my kids.
