No! Beat it kid! Just kidding. Everyone is welcome. Nice job on the van. When you move into a bus, it will feel like you moved into a mansion.

Re: Are Vandwellers welcome here? :)

So does the antenna extend the range of your wifi card in your laptop?

It's amazing who much the price of panels has dropped.

Re: Are Vandwellers welcome here? :)

I often wondered the legality of converting a cube van into a shaggin waggon and if there was seats back there...

Re: Are Vandwellers welcome here? :)

When you installed your AC unit, I hope you allowed plenty of room for the air conditioner to vent. We put a window style unit in our popup http://www.freewebs.com/schinskeapache/index.htm. Unfortunately I was very limited as to the amount of space I had around the unit and we ended up going thru 2 units (although they did last quite a while but they pooped out at the worst time... on the "remodel" page you can see the hole over the tire where we had cut out for the AC unit). By the last remodel, I had decided I would rather have a microwave than an AC unit (it's pretty cool in TN, not like SC). Right now... I would LOVE to have my noisy, RV style rooftop mount AC unit running. Unfortunately Anna's electrical system in her house here won't support us running the AC. We've parked the RV in her backyard for a week or so. We're right next to the bus. She needs a bigger back yard! "Mel" (Customers Suck forum) thinks it's neat that you live in a van. She also said "HI" and that you need to leave CA.

Re: Are Vandwellers welcome here? :) NEW PICS JULY 3RD!

Looks great. Mel had to cruise thru your photobucket page and snooping in your cupboards. Mel wants to know when they turned "Phoenix Wright" into a manga? (I did say "snooping") also "Your van kicks a$$, Kus" Also Mel thinks you need a little truck camper awning to go over the rear doors of your van.... and to leave California.

Extremely impressive! Well done. It's inspirational with such a small van. Are you sure you're not related to Smitty? Perhaps a long lost nephew......... Twice or third removed.......

You have to understand... your "stuff" expands to fill all available space and then proceeds to expand just a bit more.

Kusanagi, I have been away from the forum for a while but just now saw your posts about converting and living in your van. You say you are 25 yrs? A glimmer of hope for today's youth!!! I am incredibly impressed with the creativity and labor that you have invested in your van and your situation. My crystal ball says you have a very bright and interesting future. Please keep posting.
