• How to make a motorhome from GAZ-66
Motorhome - which, unfortunately, is not the most accessible thing for the majority of compatriots. But what if you make a camper on their own from scratch, based on the old Soviet car? This is what one enthusiast. In this review, the story of what happened out of this venture.
When you take a GAZ-66 military-style, it is unlikely from this machine is worth waiting for at least some comfort, but if the machine with mileage, it is hoped that it will be in good condition at all stupid. However, this did not stop our hero, who bought the old GAZ 1988 production at one of the army units. Immediately after the acquisition of the master took up the repair and modernization of the vehicle. It began with the cockpit. She was cut off from the top, to be subsequently extended on 15 centimeters.
After upgrading the cockpit began to refine the car frame. First there was made a stretcher, then the panel added two more fuel tanks, and the cut through the back window. But all this pales in comparison with the installation of a new engine. It borrowed from MAN. The power unit makes 155 horsepower, and the volume - 4.5 liters. This is more than enough for the brutal camper.
makeshift roof rack made of stainless steel has been added to the cab. With it, the author of the project wanted to increase the available space to store stuff. Wheels were not touching, but painted the car a completely new way. Also corridor appeared in the cockpit, which allows you to quickly get into the living quarters and take the necessary thing from there.
As for the module, it is all in the "best traditions". Inside the traveler waits dining area, powder room, small bedroom, sunroof, a system for storing waste and kitchen. There is a supply of water, place in the gas bottles and extra batteries. Incidentally, the bathroom includes not only the toilet, but the shower.
The perfect solution.
