Default Re: New Owner Questions

It's been raining here so I went out to the Westfalia to see if anything was leaking. On a whim I grabbed the edge of one of the rear panels to see how difficult they were going to be to remove, when I start my remodel. Both of them came off in under two minutes. These plastic panels are thick and HEAVY...I guess the two rear ones combined with the big side one weigh collectively somewhere between 15 and 20 pounds.

That ladder and bike rack will be coming off next.

While standing back there admiring my remodeling skills, a thought struck me...the Westfalias were delivered with no spare tire. Is that correct ?

Notice the two dings on my left rear quarter panel where the previous owner must have disconnected the door swing limiter and smacked the spare tire rack into the quarter panel. Doing that would spoil your day.
