And all this time I thought a grille w/ diagonal bar meant "VOLVO".
Who knew.........
Not a bad layout, but for sure I would have found a way to walk from cab to camper, that plus the addition of skirts around the "coach" section, and some aluminum wheels would really transform the looks for the better.....

In a way, it's kind of interesting.

The rear seating platform, you crawl up into it, can't stand up because the height is too low, but just high enough to sit.

Then there is a bunk underneath.

Sort of a good idea. Good use of space. I guess you could have also sat low and slept high. the reverse of what they built.

the picture of Tom Selleck on the wall is classic.

I don't know much!! But I think it is a typo error. If you look at the photo real close its a 3 plunger Kubota.If my long term memory is correct. Back then (Early 90s) it may not be more then 20-HP. I THINK that you need more then that to make 24k. I will stand wrong if corrected,But be easy on me.
