Great article Rick, good to see a more in depth article instead of the usual two pages devoted to most online mag articles these days.

OKA 374 LT Van, converted to camper/motorhome,
400ah Lithiums, 680w solar, diesel cooking heating and HWS,
Cummins 6BT, Allison 6 speed auto, Nissan transfer.

OKAs are famous, they outlive their owners

How'd the article come about?

long story

What gearbox do you have in there ?

Dana Spicer T5 290 alias Turner TX5-2276
...ie Standard XT, LT gearbox. Authentic OKA, like the rest of #149 except for usual necessary refinements/upgrades.
One of the reasons for the author's choice

Hi Rick,
That is a great write up and as mentioned above a good vehicle to write about.
I liked how the article was put together which made it easy to read to the end so much so I signed up to their site, newsletters and articles.
Thank you
Martyn
