    What have I done Brad. I've gone from hating them to having 5 in less than 9 months.

    Looks great Rhet....a bit taller in the back with the new syncro springs? How much taller did it go?

    Your Dad's T3 Trakka wedge aircooled camper looks great - looks like a keeper from that smile!

    I know I know, Every time I head to the shed I think of it on the way and once I get there I forget.
    . haha

    But I can tell you it once had 2/3rd seat in there as one of the brackets are still there, the inboard one has been removed. I will try to remember to get some pics on Thursday.

    Excellent, if you could measure it up for me when the time comes, I would really appreciate it :)

    I think a 2/3 passenger seat will slide right in there. The inner slider on the 2/3 seat itself is midway under the seat. So you can have a single seat or a double if you have a bulkhead which I'm guessing was standard on commercials.
