    When I was at the yard on Friday looking for parts for my wife’s car, I grabbed 2nd row seats and front seat belts from an ‘01 Honda Odyssey. It took about 20 hours of work to make them fit in this tank. The seat belts took longer than the seats.

    The old, disgusting, torture chairs...

    The new, glorious, happy seats...

    Did you see any bucket seats with integrated seat belts on your JY adventure?

    No, but I wasn’t really looking. I just happened to look in the Honda because there was a set just like these on CL without a pic. I was hesitant to call on them without seeing/trying them first. I liked them so much, I grabbed them.

    Are you looking for a set of seats with seatbelts?

    Yes... for the wagon. No easy way to install 3pt belt - shoulder mount would go all the way through the side of the body, or I have to make an internal roll bar or frame. Also looking at full harness seats (corbeau) but that seems inconvient and overkill. Early extended cab pickups with the suicide access doors had integrated seatbelts, and some rear van seats as well.

    I’d think convertibles would have them? I’ll keep an eye out. I might be headed back there this week.

    I wish I could remember what the bench seat in my 79 f150 was from. It was super comfortable and had a center console.

    The back seats from a last generation f150 (2009-2014) might work if you're looking for a bench with integrated belts. I may be wrong, but I feel like I remember seeing them.

    Did you do anything with the water heater? Is it electric with propane ?

    I try not to look at it, and hope it lasts forever. :rofl:

    AFAIK, it’s just propane.

    Definitely look for Chrysler Sebring convertible seats, seen several older cars with them, takes care of the shoulder harness problem.

    I relocated the spare tire to under the rear of the RV for about $45. I grabbed some 2x4 tubing from the scrap yard, eight 8” bolts with nylock nuts, and a worm drive boat winch at HF that I promptly chopped into pieces. I had to shorten it in both length and height, I replaced the hand crank with the female end of an old screw jack, and I rigged a locking mechanism to the screw.

    Lifting hook...

    [​IMG]

    I made the framework from the tubing, an old pulley, and some angle iron.

    [​IMG]

    Everything got painted with copper paint leftover from last year’s Halloween.

    The winch was welded to the top of the receiver hitch.

    Now it’s ready for a scooter rack. :sneak:

    Nice work! I've often thought about moving ours underneath.

    looks great!
    And the MH frame looks stout enough to handle a decent size trailer too!
