    But it makes it so easy to spin the rear tires.

    Rear tires are just enough to throw little pieces of mud at the back of my head.

    I think you are my new hero. All the adventures you have, crazy stories, and now you are wheeling 1/2 of a dually motorhome.

    I made a deal on it a few months back, but didn't get to pick it up till this last weekend when I was in the Portland area.

    It has a 454 with 12,000 miles on a rebuild, TH400 and 14-bolt Dually rear. It was a 1973 Pacesetter 25ft Motorhome. I bought it as it sits for $700, mainly for the motor.

    I was looking at it earlier today... and looked closer at the motor. It even has an Edelbrock aluminum intake on it! Not something I expected to see on a motorhome.

    Until I pull it apart to re-sell the tranny and rear end and keep the motor, it will get a pair of 44" tires mounted on the back, and some mud shields behind the seats.

    I box it in!

    I'd put a back wall on the :cab: and make a car hauler out of it!--then you could tow the trailer too,and bring twice as much stuff home than before!--I think that thing looks like too much fun to just cut up for parts!..wish I had one,I'd be heading for AZ,looking for old muscle cars to haul back... :crazy:

    That was one of my ideas. To wall it off behind the rear seats with a central mounted house door in the middle, a small wood deck as a porch to step out onto (complete with stained boards and railing :D ) and a flatbed on the back to haul cars. But then I wouldn't get any money back out of it directly, and the last thing I need is something else to keep.

    Convert that thing and make it a real wheeler. =) you need more weight in the back... put some diamond plate across that area over the back tires and bolt on a bench seat... bolt a cooler to the floor in front of it, build a roll cage around it, and let your friends ride on the back wheels with beer... =)
