Re: '65 Standard

What type of mattress are you going to use on that platform? I hear memory foam gets really hard in the cold and becomes unbearable to sleep on and an air mattress never gets warm. Just curious what you are planning to use. No comments on the wood working. I think you do what you can to make it func...

This will be just like a hotel room Sean. :lol:

Thanks for the photos Craig. I will be running aux power not using the starter battery. I was going to have a portable power station to plug the main switch into. Then run all of the electrical to that switch, same as it was originally designed.

Re: 1960 SO-23 A.K.A. Gunther

I think with this location and utilizing the existing holes and duct work it can be a fairly straightforward install. I am leaning strongly towards the Webasto diesel heater with the digital controller option. I agree an auxiliary diesel tank will be needed. I am thinking behind the driver seat wher...

Re: 1960 SO-23 A.K.A. Gunther

I really considered this Ted. It is on my bench in the basement waiting to be cleaned up. I saved all of the parts. Here are my concerns with it. I had read that there are parts you just simply cannot find for them. I am a member of a group with a lot of good info. I don't have a fuel gage on my bus...

Re: CampmobileCraig

Craig, show us pictures of your heater installation. Which one did you buy? How did you run your electrical and where did you install your diesel tank? Do you like the controller that came with it or did you install a digital thermostat?

Re: 1960 SO-23 A.K.A. Gunther

The newer units are a bit smaller than the originals so I don't think having it fit will be an issue. I want to reuse the existing holes for the exhaust and the intake hoses but based on what I have seen, I will probably only be able to use one and have to drill a second one in the floor. I won't re...
