    We may end up going that route. Gas heaters that aren't vented to the outside scare me a bit though.

    I wish I had a photo of every camper I've had. Started with 4runner with a cot and a 6k btu furnace that vented through the rear window, then I went to a Chevy with a pop up on back. The pop up was built for cold weather as I made insulated curtains for the pop up portion, super warm but I hated having to pop it up and I was too big for the kitchen table/bed. Then I got an old travel trailer, I liked it cause I could put my sled on the back. But now I have my baby, I found her at a repo auction, I was the only bidder and walked away with a Sportsmobile for cheap built on a 1995 Ford E350 7.3L Powerstroke Turbo Diesel. We have a lift kit and some 35's to put on it, but I've been through a couple surgeries this past year and its hard to do anything these days.

    Yeah I didn't get it either. If it's for privacy some curtains with Velcro seems easier & cleaner.

    Edit: OP answered the question. The heat thing makes sense, that's definitely the one thing that gets to us sleeping in the back of the truck...no heat for getting up in the morning.

    A-llota sick ass vans!

    -Conundrum, that Big Red Dog can hang with the Death Van anytime
    (consider a fold down futon bed for the back, that's what I've got. There's plenty of storage underneath plus it's a couch to boot, I had a framed single bed but sitting on it for hours at night sucked, plus the gal didn't like sleeping on the floor)

    those other Sportsmobiles are too f'n clean, they even look like they've actually been washed???

    -(slightly jealous, my vans been in the shop for over a month, this time...) Nice rigs folks, now let's get 'em out there!

    Anyone ever use one of these portable dehumidifiers?

    http://www.eva-dry.com/

    I just picked the small one up at Fred Meyer for $17. I was thinking it might help with the condensation when sleeping in the canopy in the back of my truck. You plug it in for 12 hours and it's supposed to last for 30-60 days.

    I'm no Martha Stewart, so farting around with curtains isn't an option. It takes a few seconds to roll up the front and back flaps and secure with velcro when I'm ready to roll. Privacy means if cops/security come knocking at 2AM in a parking lot, the sign on the dash "Starter motor is dead, will be back in the morning" hopefully creates sufficient doubt that anyone is behind the blue tarp inside.
    The tarp blocks out all visuals, front and back, and is cheap n ez.
    Silent....but shredly.

    [start hijack]- Love your disco, I have the same one, you've got newer style wheels though. Did you do the cheap-bastard lift or all 4 new springs? Here's mine... I don't sleep in it though.

    Bolton,

    That Chinook looks so good I bet it still smells like 1977. (a fine vintage)

    Very cool!

    The Chinook looks dope, I just saw one of those with a huge lift on 35's, it looked very cool.

    I would personally avoid the 4 cyl/auto tranny combo in these things unless you're only planning on driving it in kansas.

    I live in this puppy all winter long.

    Yes, I'm aware of the padiddle. I got it fixed.
