Hi, I had a question about camping along the Lost Coast. Are there visible signs for the popular campsites?
The lost coast is so remote that all camps are unmarked. There are no signs for the camp sites.
Hi! Great website! I’m curious about some of the mods you performed on your Sportsmobile, in particular ” 2″ spacer lift up front, Add a leaf to the rear + air bags.” Can you comment on the reason for these changes? Thanks!
These were added on by the previous owner, primarily for off-road clearance. Our van has a low hanging propane tank and gray water tank, but the spacer – add a leaf combination gives us some peace of mind. The air bags were added for towing, but can level out the height of the van. I would not recommend the lift as it alters the geometry of the suspension significantly. The air bags also reduce rear axle articulation.
If I were to do it, I would have just trimmed/rolled the fenders and got larger tires. With rolled fenders, the Dodge B series vans should be able to clear 31-31.5 inch tires.
