Yes. Mercedes used the drive-train platform for a number of their commercial products in the late 60's.

Had some time to clear out the cab area. Brown stuff on the floor is dry cushion material that the mice pick off from the seats. Engine appears to be in decent shape despite the years gone by. AC is in good working condition.

Next task is to clean up the floor and sand and prep for primer and paint.

Awesome thread. Glad it runs but the all important question have you driven it yet? I know you said you had it towed home.

Not sure why so many people are hung up on the fact that it is not a tow behind camper. I think as long as it is fiberglass and an RV it sould not have any problems in this website.

I am watching this thread daily and watching your progress and looking for ideas I may not have thought of for my own camper rebuild.

I want to know where you will hang the fuzz dice. Is there an inside rear view mirror?

I'm enjoying following this rescue. Keep posting those pictures.

Kinda looks like it got rear ended. What is with the big tear at the bumper?
