      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Van Utility Trailer

5 posts in this topic

Posted

So, you need an enclosed utility trailer, but all you have is a non-operable old Dodge van? Why not do what a guy in Ithaca did (except the 1:1 was a fullsize GM van)? That's right- cut away the front 1/3 or so, wall off the front portion, and add a tounge!

I built this a couple of years ago, using the rear part of the body and interior tub from an MPC 1980 'Wanted Van' annual kit, the springs and tounge from a Model King Camper, and some spares box wheels and tires.

A lot of nice dry room in there. I was interested to see there was a version of the Chevy Van with the swing side doors.
