Ami had one in CA if he still has it. He used to post frequently and is the person who originally found where to get the right shaped window gasket material. Also the lady in Canada who dug her VT out of the mud, was going to sell to Roy in Toronto, and then backed out of the deal. And the lady in NY who bought Mike Szabo's camper. She belongs to this forum.

There was a guy in Nebraska who had one that was pretty original. His son was towing it and somehow broke one of the rear lenses. He tried to find a lense and then ended up selling it, I want to say to someone in North Dakota. That person has never surfaced either here or on uhaulcamper.com.

What do you have covering your seam above you LED lights? We took the rug down and want to replace it with "something"

I bought headliner fabric from JoAnns a fabric stor chain around here. Cut refletrex a bubble wrap insulation available at Lowes to the width I wanted double thick section. Uses the good 3M spray contact cement to spray backside of the headliner and 1 layer of refletrex,wraped the headliner around refletrex and glued. Glued the 2 reflex trip layers together . Got hook and loop Velcro. From perfect fit or you could get it from fabric store. Glued about 3' sections at window ends and near AC for access to wiring then sprayed middle sections well with contact cement an corresponding refletrex stuck it up an velcroed the end s up.

I know you have a U-Haul, but the Burro is so similar... maybe these will give you inspiration:

Pam Garlow's Grasscloth

Scott B Wood Strips

Mike's Bamboo Ceiling

Looks like you may have larger tires than usual. Was your axle changed? Nice looking from the outside. I also sent you a PM.

Enjoy the Adventure
