I don't have any data, just anecdotal information.
  • I bought my UHaul in December 2011. It came with a new hub in a box dated 1992. The hubs on it appeared to be all original.
  • Of all the posts I've read here and at uhaulcamper.com there has only been one reported failure - Cindy and Kevin's VT
  • This exact same part was used on 1993 to 2003 Camaro and Firebird front wheels.

Pam, looks like we've got the same one...I think she's such a good Egg...SO well built!

Just noticed, looks like the furnace vent is gone and a flat cover there? Has the furnace been removed?

Hi Mary and Bob, Well you're right. It was removed and there is a massive heat pump/AC in the back window. I don't like it and will be replacing the window. I live in California, so having an AC isn't necessary and my friend turned me onto this portable lil furnace, made by Mr Heater. As Paris Hilton says..."it's SO HOT!"

About those window seals, Bridgette mentioned, do you have another recommendation? I'm open to doing my research, but even more open to getting input on alternative products. -V

Thank you, Carl! The great find is that my friend who found a Hunter Compact mentioned this forum to me. I feel guilty with how much time I've spent on here already...dang that laundry sure does pile up fast!

Vanessa, Since you are already spending alot of time with us. You might want to change your profile, specifically your trailer probably should no longer read "I wanna biod". Maybe add your new trailer in a registry. Forget the laundry.

Thanks Linda,
I'm in Mountain View. If I could pitch like Sergio Romo, I could hit the Google Campus from my loft! I have a great shop, Kevin's Auto, whose mechanics work on all my vehicles. He's pretty much down the street. It's truly a one stop shop! They do it all...have many fleet accounts.

When I move, no matter where I'm at, I'll bring them back here.

He literally picked up my trailer like a rickshaw, and shoved it in my driveway while I was at work. No charge, as once he saw they were sealed "he got the thing out of his way!"...but my hubcaps weren't back on, so I'm still waiting for Oz to come back in tomorrow to find out what happened to them. sigh It's always sumptin'

Vanessa, for window weatherstrip I used the AS1456 from perfect fit as it is close to the Uhaul original. I think I detailed it in the thread about the new old stock Uhaul windows. Otherwise Bridget has a great thread about rebuilding the windows. For a rear window in ours I installed a Scamp rear window, the wall opening has to be widened by about one inch. If you go this route do not use the foam rubber gasket provided by Scamp, use butyl tape. If you are using a propane Mr Heater, be sure to have some ventilation.

Thanks for the safety tip, M&B! I have a newish fan installed where the swamp cooler used to be. It has a very strong exhaust setting as well as blower. I don't really anticipate needing heat anytime soon where I'm going.

We spent the winter 3 months in our Uhaul at a campground in Georgia. Used an electric heater to keep warm. The original Uhaul wiring isn't much use, I rewired the whole trailer, both 110 and 12 volt and installed a new power converter. We have two sizes of the Mr Heaters, the small one and the medium size. Have used them in the trailer with a window slightly open, but will not use them while sleeping. We also have a Fantastic Fan in place of the swamp cooler.

Congratulations Vanessa, I understand your thrill of the find and getting on the road. It is so nice to re-live that excitement each time someone posts here that they have a new egg.
