This summer I took the family to visit Maccus in Custer SD. He has an awesome 6x6 military 5 ton he converted to a camper. I thought it was the best thing ever, and expressed the desire to git me one. About a week ago Maccus emailed me a lead on this truck in western South Dakota. The seller got the mail and called yesterday to confirmed the deal is done. Looks like I'm gonna have a camper!

I've been smiling so hard my face hurts! :)

Dan the recovery is set for next Tuesday the 6th. Weather permitting. Will drive it to my place until you can fetch it. There are 3 folks along the way that have OD trucks and they are alerted so were we to have any trouble we are ready for any problems. Two of the guys have large service trucks with all the needed stuff on them so....... We will be taking a lot of pictures. Only about 100 miles to the location where the truck is anyway.

I believe the old boy selling the truck is a mechanic at the local GM dealership. He keeps the truck there I think. Hence the nice shop/building. But yes we all could use a building like that. I bet the GM connection is one of the reasons the truck is in such good shape .

That is an incredibly crisp looking truck, even with the unique paint colour (Color for you folks South of the Border)!

I'm not 100% sure yet. I just checked out a few pages of RAYZER's conversion post. I will have to get back to it later tonight.

Here is what I think I want:
2 pairs of bunk beds, (2 beds on each side)
Window A /C unit above the cab
Propane heater
A toilet
Gun locker, probably under a bed
Carpet
A place to sit and eat or play cards

I just took delivery of 2 new paint guns from Harbor Freight. Maccus told me to get another with a remote tank for painting the undersides of things.

Did you get this one Dan? The HF gun I have like that has painted many a truck. I bought a spare last summer cause I figured the old one would die soon. But it is still going. For $49 you cannot go wrong. Way good enough for an occasional user. By the way with that gun I use a gallon less paint when doing a deuce.

Dang!!! That one gallon of paint saved was probably enough to allow you to buy the paint to put the letters on the 8N tractor!:whistle:

Plus, you already have the spray gun...and a backup!:popcorn:
