    JDM Mitsubishi Delica JB500 camper body on L300 truck chassis build

    Ours had three pumps. One inside the 5 gallon fresh water jug (I replaced that with a manual pump), and two attached to the main water tank; one inside and one outside the tank. Presumably one was for the shower and the other for the kitchen tap, though I I’m not sure why they did it that way. I...

    JDM Mitsubishi Delica JB500 camper body on L300 truck chassis build

    @outside.the.9to5 my main water tank and gray water tank both hold about 26 gallons, then there's a separate removable 5 gallon tank just for drinking water as Hernandm8800 mentioned. @Hernandm8800 So sorry for not getting back to you sooner, and sorry to hear about your window! Not sure where...

    JDM Mitsubishi Delica JB500 camper body on L300 truck chassis build

    Some panels come off easy as pie, others are a pain in the ********. Completely random but it can be done. My wife found the map on amazon but don't recall exactly what we ordered. We just used some 3m spray mount. and actually the divider is kinda a pain in the ******** to remove too :rolleyes: but I...

    JDM Mitsubishi Delica JB500 camper body on L300 truck chassis build

    Yeah, the waiting has got to be rough! I should let you know that taking the wallpaper down and refinishing the wood is not a task for the faint of heart! We used a heat gun and a portable clothes steamer to get it off, but you will have places where the veneer will come off with the wallpaper...

    JDM Mitsubishi Delica JB500 camper body on L300 truck chassis build

    Hey Bill, sorry for the loooong delay in getting back to you! I like your Elf (those front lower windows look so cool) and yea, definitely looks like the same interior we have which is interesting since the Elf looks longer than the JB500. I'm very happy with the fridge so far but honestly...

    JDM Mitsubishi Delica JB500 camper body on L300 truck chassis build

    We actually bought ours back in May but figured there's so few of us around, I should add my info here too (pics below). Ours came with a large solar panel on the roof, two house batteries (one of which was a monstrous boat battery of some kind jury rigged under the chassis. Neither of them...

    Sounds like we're doing a lot of the same things. We haven't moved it since we drove it from Portland a couple weekends ago as we're taking it to a mechanic for a full inspection (don't want to take any chances). Will eventually replace a lot of the old camping equipment as well. Curious what...

    Does your camping equipment work (heater, fridge, etc)? I haven't plugged a battery in yet to test ours and not sure what we'll find! Also, do you have plans to switch the electrical system over to 110v or leave it 220v? We're planning on being in the states for the next year or two, but then...

    Thanks! Yeah, we're pretty ecstatic even if it means we have to sell our beloved Westfalia to afford it. It's a long term project for us and I'm bracing for some headaches but it's got such potential... (we'll see if that statement still holds true in 3 months :LOL:)

    Fast doesn’t enter into it - our air cooled Westfalia would have blown the doors off of this thing! That said, this thing has sat for 5 years before we drove it, so hopefully some proper maintenance will help. Not much of a hauler either, but you can stand up in it, it sleeps 4-5, has a...

    Great info, Moby! You've given me some more stuff to look at over the weekend. We've only driven from Portland to Seattle so far, but have also only gotten 15mpg. That said, we've done zero maintenance so far - planning on getting a full inspection next week so hoping that will help. We're...

    Hey Mobi, we just bought one ourselves! We're heading down to Portland this weekend to pick it up and drive it back home to Seattle. It's really exciting but also a bit daunting 😬. Our current rig is a VW Westfalia with a huge user base, whereas with the JB500... well, not sure how many of these...
