September 2003: Earl & Eileen buy a camper.
|Norval and Eileen and the new beast, a 1976 GM 1-ton, with a
V-8 350 engine, tandem wheels, built-in propane tank (between
the wheels on this side) and a pull-out awning.
There's a queen-size-length, double-width, bed over the cab.
|Looking forward: 4-burner propane stove & oven, sink,
3-way fridge, microwave, bathroom with shower. It has lots of
and a 12v lighting system throughout. When on mains power, a
power converter runs the lighting.
Across from the fridge is the table with seat belts for four, which makes into a double bed.
Upper port cupboard: fire extinguisher.
|Facing aft: in the ceiling, an air conditioner/heater for when
connected to mains, a wardrobe, and fully aft, a bench
(with the fresh water tank underneath) which pulls out to make
another exceptionally long double bed.
Not shown: propane furnace, starboard, and water heater, port.
