Hi all , starting a thread on my new camper. I had a 91 westy with lots of mods; suby, engine, propex furnace , dual propane tanks etc, and we slowly have grown out of it. So after lots of looking around with not alot of options, I chose to go with the FG. My main needs or wants were , bigger, able to haul more, and 4x4. I had a pretty good idea of the issues with the FG and thought I could work around them. I have just completed my first big trip with it and am very happy with it except improving the ability to dampen big bumps. This first pic is when I bought the truck and got it home. It was new but was on a lot for a while. Its a 2007 that I purchased in 2009.
The first thing needed was a deck, so I mocked one up out of wood. My neighbors thought it was to be built out of wood, ha.
this is in its semi complete state, still need to complete the interior and heat/ water system storage areas, and an out door kitchen. I needed to use it so am taking a break from working on it. It has some temporary cabinets, a queen size bed, and a 6.8 cu/ft nova cool 12 volt fridge with freezer. I do alot of highway so the bulk of my driving is with that in mind, but needed to be able to get into those hard to get into places. I have gotten stuck several times with my 2 wheel drive westy. Our trip was a good distance, 8,225 km with some 4x4 ing , I like the FG for its size and great turning radius, we got our selves onto an ATV track that dwindled down to nothing and did a reverse turn in very little space, Once off the track I had to remove some foliage that we took with us.
I will try to post some pics of the on going construction. Yves
