The plan is to repaint the Revcon including a new trim. The foil doesn´t look good anymore. So my specialist took measurements last year.

There was only one cam installed on the RV. It had the motorbike carrier in focus. The cam is heated and saltwater-resistant.

In fall 2020 I ordered a pair of yellow Bosch fog lamps - Made in Sweden. There are already two nasty holes on the top of the front bumper so I thought that they would fit perfectly in. They are NOS from 1979. Every bus was equipped with these yellow lens fog lamps in those days. BMWs and VW beetles too. :lol:

The good-looking rear roof markers are gone, there are even no holes anymore. I bought red vintage tractor lamps to replace them.

By the way...I get almost everything from ebay.com or ebay.de. The Revcon was also offered on Ebay. For spare parts I prefer rockauto.com.

All of the Dexron 2 transmission fluid was gone! My mechanic used a tractor to pull the coach from its parking space. And this faulty line was responsible for the mess.

The Revcon has been in Finland, Sweden, Spain, Cornwall GB etc. with its former owner...but it broke down at my mechanic´s repair shop. Shit happens, but before we went about 2.500 km (1553 miles) without any troubles in summer 2020. :?

It was on the Standard Equipment list, but it got lost during the years. The same happened to the Spotlight and the Icemaker... :?
