2.8 powered S10 RV

I've seen a few different S10 based RVs over the years, this is the first one I've seen that didn't have dual wheels on the back. Think it's a little underpowered? http://knoxville.craigslist.org/rvs/5120868249.html

Not bad looking camper! I'm sure it's slow, but who cares? Older dash so 82-85 model. 115 hp engine.

Re: 2.8 powered S10 RV

Hey jimmykicker that RV on that other site is a Mirage. http://s-seriesforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=79217 Just like the one that was at the Birmingham pull-a-part a few years back https://www.s10forum.com/forum/f106/t...is-out-438960/ .

Re: 2.8 powered S10 RV

I wonder what the rear gear ratio is? Maybe 4.56 or something low I would bet.

That thing is cool as hell! I bet it isn't bad, they had Toyota campers back in the 80s and 90s that I'm sure were wayyyyy worse. At least the 2.8 has tourqe.

Yeah, that is identical...I'd love to have that thing now since my GF loves camping and I love S trucks.
