Well I have been enjoying driving the camper every weekend as my daily". I drive it starting Thursday evening until Sunday evening. Even got the wife used to taking the camper instead of the CC. Friday I fitted the elephant mirror that Larry sent me to the passenger side since it is hardest to see on that side. I wanted to see how it looked and how useful it was. All I can say is DAMN what a HUGE difference. I can see a lot better now. Still not sure if I like the way it looks on the bus but I think I will get over that.

Also found out yesterday that the tank is leaking from the fill neck somewhere. I will need to get a flashlight to see where exactly it is leaking.

If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhea....does that mean that one out of five enjoys it?

Elephant ears look good depending on how you orient them.

That's how I like mine. That way, when going through "tight spaces", if they clear then the whole bus does too! :cool:

Picked up a muffler on thesamba for a good price to replace the stocker on the SC. Hope it gets here before turkey day.

well in reality regardless of the mirrors you have on the bus, if they don't hit something, you are clear to move forward. Unless you are talking about getting in and out of the bus, then yes I see how that would make it easy.

They usually leak where the neck is welded to the main body of the tank.

Decided to turn the bus back into my daily driver. The little nissan I've been driving to work for years decided to call it quits.

I tell everyone... my newest vehicle is a ‘70 Bug, and my oldest, the ‘65 camper, is the most reliable! :-P

Installed new wiper shafts so I can have working windshield wipers. Looking forward to a little rain later this week so I can try them out.

Those are just the shafts. The gadgets for the safari wipers go on the end of them and ain’t cheap. I considered them but then, with how “often” it rains here, I just keep my wipers bolted down and iffin I’m going to drive in the rain, I’ll bolt them upright. :cool:

I keep mine on the parcel tray with a wrench to install them if needed, I usually only put 1 on when raining. The best part is they don't get weathered being inside away from the sun. They are probably 10 years old and still work well when needed.

I also have mine on the tray!
Rarely use them because I use RainX!
