I never posted any photos when I bought my LT35 last year, so here's, hopefully, some from my 2,000mile (so far) Euro trip following some Moto GP races.

No idea, I've spent hours under it, timing belt and brakes, and not seen a tag... Saw another one going the other way in Germany, even got a wave!

Hey Everyone. We bought our -82 LT35 last spring. She had already been converted to a motor home back in -91 so we will be doing an overhaul of the interior, adding some modern features etc, but no major rebuild.

Overall I'd say she's in very good shape for such an old van, but in need of some technical TLC.


She has her own instagram account with a bunch of pictures @bellecamper, because, well why not :)

Hey, oh yeah I just hadn’t entered all the details in my profile, sorry about that.

We have the twin rear wheels axle with only two leaf springs, which seems a bit weird. And atthe front we have a normal coil/spring setup, no leafs or beam.

I’m pretty sure we need to replace the leafs springs but that’s a topic for the tech forum...
