Thanks, Dave...some days I wonder...

I really only know enough stuff to know that there is more stuff to know...

Like I said at the judging seminar at the Nats...if we (the old guys) don't tell the stories and share what we have learned, then you (the new guys) will have to start over, and the stories and knowledge will slowly be lost!

Howard...

Any chance the Nats board would reconsider the Trans Van at some point? The reason I ask is because it was built on a van chassis as were the Xplorers (that are allowed at the Nats)

The explorers we were talking about are the early ones, built by cutting up a van. Anything that started life as a Cutaway cab and chassis(like a class C or a cube van) is out at this point. Roadtreks and the wide bodies were vans at one point. Scotty's Early Dodge motorhome started life as a van, as far as I know...They didn't make cutaways in the 60s...(?)

Ah..now I see your point. Thanks.

Yepper...Scotty's Balboa camper was an A108. Not sure if you he showed you, but if you peek underneath most of the van body is still intact. All Balboa did was lay the f/g body over top.

There may be some decisions to make about panels in the future. Nissan is pushing this panel as a service vehicle and (so far) they're calling it a panel.
A good looking design.

Didn't think of that. With the right name or logo they will sell millions of them!
