Congrats on a bargain, That looks a lot of van for the money, I am sure you will find after a while T/Axs are a LOT easier to reverse than a single as you really have to push them whereas a single just flicks off in its own direction LOL, Another trick with doubles is if you have to push it anywhere wind it right up on the jockey wheel till it takes some weight of the front axle, I think you will get along fine with it,

as most of you know i cant leave my vans alone so i started changing a few things.
first up the rear lights

could'nt stand the orange and red

Next the the the hook up leads, when we got the van the wires were badly scuffed and road rashed so i did my suzie line conversion to the van


now ive moved on to the inside, jobs to are sort my fridge out, sort my carver heater and fit my new burner and get a new handle for the oven. lots more space compared to the little fleetwood we had.


more updates to follow
