Daniel where are you from? Here is another question how do I know what size brakes calipers etc I need I was told that it's on 5 1/2 ton axles?? Does this make sense?

I bet I have some Dodge parts around. Front Grille, tail lights off the Tioga, van doors (with very little rust on them). Mirrors. I even have the fresh water tank and potty! I salvaged another '77 Coachman to fix the LH1 but never did it.

Glad to have a "local" contact to share info with! Best of luck with the Buddy Heater, hope you don't have to use it much longer.
