    ^^^Holy shit is that a good deal. A 7.3 power poke pick up with 81K would go for almost twice that. Rednecks jizz on that motor.

    Did Ford have the Powerstroke TURBO Diesel in '95? If no turbo then it will be seriously underpowered especially in the mountains.

    If its a powerstroke its a turbo. But the engine before the powerstroke was also a 7.3 (idi) that could be had with or without a turbo. But 94.5 was the change from 7.3 idi to 7.3 powerstroke so that should be a powerstroke...and I want it!

    We eliminate worrying about the water line/holding tank freezing issues as follows. I blowout the lines each year to exterior faucets, carry 2.5 gallon drinking water jugs, and have 1-gallon jugs of 50/50 rv antifreeze/water to "flush" solids for emergency night/morning flushes. Normally, we just spray the bowl with some cleaner after peeing. The blackwater tank takes a long time to fill this way and we make sure to use other facilities for the serious work... Always seem to find pool/hot tub facilities with showers and worth the couple of bucks they may charge.

    Used reflectix on all the windows, but will install 3M Window Insulating Film this year. Made an insulated fabric divider which snaps into place to separate the cab from the RV. This really cut down the primary source of drafts and radiant heat loss. Plus, I didnt need to scrap the inside of the windshield to drive. (3) House batteries allow the furnace to run for a couple days before needing to recharge.

    We successfully used these methods in major storms (2'+) and temps overnight to -2 degrees farenheight.
    Three years ago we spent three months tooling around the PNW in a 2001 Chinook Destiny. Used some of the same strategies as you did including an insulated blanket dividing the cabin from the living area. A word of caution about chains. If you have chains that only cover the outside wheels, try them on at home before you need to. The clearance between wheels is wicked tight and it was a pain in the ass to snake the cables (designed for low clearance) between the wheels. We folded over piece of metal flashing, laid the cables in the resulting pocket, and fished the assembly between the wheels. It worked but it wasn't easy or pleasant. Perhaps chains that cover both wheels would be easier if heavier and more expensive?

    Saw this thread describing problems with the fridge below 20F as the refrigerant becomes viscous and screws up the works.

    Thoughts?

    I've heard reports of this too. We spent 3+ months in Breck 2 years ago, and simply sealed off the bottom fridge vent, and had no issues. I've heard of people adding a 100w light bulb to the compartment as well to keep some heat inside.

    Is this a problem if you are storing the RV below 20F and not using the frig?

    No. It's already in a sealed system.

    The bus has been moving along steadily through summer. It's currently getting the 4wd installed. I'm picking it up on Nov 8th, and hoping to have the interior finished by the end of Nov. I'm spending the winter in the desert, but will be taking a few snowboarding trips as well.













    All I want is to be hardcore.

    My low rent Not-So-Sportsmobile (aka "The GnaRV") is getting there. New topper, sweet windows, new build out in the back, wood floors (really cheap vinyl that's already peeling up), etc...










    Mud season surf run. Loving it. Now I just need to paint it.

    And the 4x4 conversion...

    And insulate/finish the topper...

    And build a roof basket for the front...

    And build out some bumpers...

    And install a heater...

    If anyone is looking for a camper and truck my buddy is selling his whole rig. He was one of the people Dunfee profiled on here last winter.

    I had a newer version (93) Sun Lite that was my ski rig for many years. Even with canvas sides, it stayed pretty warm in winter without any modifications. With that said, the damage listed in the ad makes me a little nervous, particularly if you're using it in snow.

    I dont know how much id use it in snow, but from the distant pics it looks like the spot in question could be repaired/sealed. Looks like the canvas is in decent shape (again pics arent super). Interior looks good. Might have to look into pulling the trigger on this one. Time for a LOW BALL offer.

    There is a open 24 hours Walmart in Sandy about 20 minutes from Snowboard.

    Joe's Tire on the way to SB fills propane tanks.

    I have also stayed in the parking lot beside the bus stop, across the street from the Sandy community centre which has swimming pool, showers, sauna, hot tub for about $5.00.
