    So I bought a '78 Sunrader...

    Hey Fred, thanks for this I appreciate it. I'm scouring this forum as well as google - but I'm definitely putting the cart before the horse as I don't have a MH yet - working on getting one tomorrow tho! Reminds me that I need to visit the bank... Once I have a rig I can do all sorts of fun measuring and pick'n'pull hunting. If I remember right, you carry a spare for the front and back - where do you store those suckers? Have you given thought to a front axle swap?

    Is this really a Sunrader?

    Hey there Sunny - good on ya for getting to SC a day before me! I'm working on getting a different rig, a little more in-line with what I actually wanted - so no hard feelins! 😛 How's that rear axle? Also, I am super curious about where you had to go to get it!? Also, did you have to tow it? Dang... the jealousy is setting in now! Hahaha

    "The GM also came standard with 4.10.1 gearing, same as the Toyota." How important is this? Can't you do a gear swap? My biggest takeaway from this Fred Heath post is kind of along the lines of what Atlanta was saying - that as long as the springs have a place to set, the drive shaft lines up, and the axle is FF (or can hold the weight you need) and length is what you want, then you can work out the brakes etc. Personally, I love the idea of not running dually's and finding a perfect match like Fred did. Just working on widening the scope of what can fit.

    Hey Linda, do you mean no modifications needed if he transfers the whole cab over? The T100 isn't a good option for a foolie swap, is it? I'd really like to do a swap from foollie to single. -Neil

    Lookin good there, Ace! haha stay safe out there Looking forward to following along with this project, thanks for all the pics! Have you landed on what the next rig is going to be?

    Dang, Linda! Thank you! - I am still just hoping to buy this rig - a few hoops to jump through before that happens ie- drive 3 hours to check it out, get it towed to a nearby mechanic to asses and if I want to purchase it then the mechanic will need to make it road worthy - the owner says that it isn't making it up hills very well and dropping drastically in speed, thinks it might be a fuel filter or catalytic converter issue. I'll also have to replace the windshield before it goes out on the road. Personally, I am looking forward to a project to take my mind off things right now I hope you're having such a great sunday, Linda! -Neil S

    Hi Linda, if I take the outside dually off then I'd be left with one skinny wheel in the back - would it be a good idea to get an adapter made and new wheels? Thank you much! I am definitely learning a ton by poking around reading old forums. Neil S

    Thanks Linda, that's great to know. Unfortunately, the windshield, the drivers' side sliding window, and the curved front plexi glass over the drives' side as well. Definitely in store for a big project but if she's mostly mechanically sound then I'm into it! Neil S.

    What’s up Linda!? Thanks for commenting- I see you all over the forums here so it’s cool to get your expertise In the last 30 mins here I’ve realized this rig will be quite a lot more work than just the interior. What with the rear axle needing a complete replacement due to it being a ‘foolie’, right? Plus whatever state the engine is in...

    Hi there, does this look like a Sunrader anyone else has seen? I haven’t run across one with this layout- with the door in the back like this. Supposed to be a ‘78 Sunrader Since my plan is to completely overhaul it I’d love some inspiration as far as layouts are concerned. I hope everyone is having a great day and putting in some good work on their projects or getting out in the wild- either way I don’t expect any responses here until Monday mid-morning rolls around hahaha! -Neil
