Hello everyone, I'm brand new here and am also new to RVs. This looks like a great place so far! I'm looking at purchasing a 1973 Mercedes 508D camper van. I don't know much about these, and I've been having a lot of trouble finding a reliable information source about them. Part of the problem is the fact that I live in the United States, and there aren't very many of them over here. I believe the van has a 3.6 liter, 4 cylinder engine, 80 HP or about 60 kW. I believe the vehicle I'm looking at purchasing is almost 8,000 lbs. I'm hoping some of you could share your experiences you've had with these vans? Are my engine specifications reasonably correct? I'm expecting a top speed of around 100 km/h or maybe 50-60 MPH. Where are some places I can order parts for these? (I imagine it'd be a UK site, and I'd have to deal with expensive shipping.) How reliable are they? The one I'm buying has less than 100,000 miles on it over the last 35 years, but it's not been sitting -- it's been driven over 100 miles within the last few weeks. Thanks for the help, everyone. I'm so excited to be into RV-ing now, so I'm eager to learn.
