Re: Toyhauler/camper project:

That's some machine your rig's shaping up to be- all aspects. I may get brave enough to attempt a similar style of roof raise one of these days. I really like the lines created by tapering the front like that.

Re: Toyhauler/camper project:

How much more top heavy does the bus feel now that you did the roof raise? Does it feel like the wind is just gunna barrell roll you over?

Re: Toyhauler/camper project:

well I took my interior wiring harness out and washed the front of the bus firewall out reall good. It was FULL of dirt and dust, as was the rest of the bus but its all clean now. I want to add some insulation to the firewall area and decided to pull the harness to make it easier. I got to thinking about it and where the fuse block was buried meant a painful cramped time if I ever need to check a fuse so..... I took the wrap off the harness and found that all but 5 wires were long enough to allow me to separate my fuse block from the firewall connector by more than 24"! I lengthened the 5 wires, (Soldered, sealed and heatshrinked BTW) now my fuse block will be right at the edge of my new dash panel for easy access. I repaired some bad spots in the wiring and labeled all of it so I know in the future what goes where.

Great job and inspiration to move my engine compartment fuse/bus panel to better location.

Re: Toyhauler/camper project:

Got my driver and pass side windows finally!!!!! I only paid $48 for them shipped.
I got them from this guy on ebay http://stores.ebay.com/Bottom-Dollar-Surplus-Inc He has ALOT of RV/camper parts for good prices and shipped them well packaged. I will most likely be buying from him again!
