    No it just has a home made bed platform. The pop top was fitted in 1993 by Suncamper Conversions at Balgowlah for the sum of $2500, I have the receipt. It also has a DMT approval label in the van. It is like a Camperise conversion where they dont cut all the roof out.

    That’s really good total blockout tint on the middle and rear windows!

    Good for late morning sleep-ins, I guess...:rolleyes:

    Its in amazingly great condition for its age and for being a 30 year old un-restored panel. Lucky it was used as a day camper or it would have been a work van and been killed!

    Seemed to get up the hills no problem and never got hot even on a warm day in some traffic.

    Rare to see a panel, converted to a camper, without windows hacked into the sides.

    Did your wife give you permission this time or did you tell her some one dumped it out the front and thought you could use it?

    How many vehicles can you buy and sell each year, before you need a Dealer’s Licence? :rolleyes:

    I dont wreck vans anymore (too old) I have however bought a few this year and taken a few bits that I wanted and sold the vans on so not sure what licences are required for that :)
    This model seems to annoy Dianne less than stripping the vans :)
