1979 MB Camper Van, type 28 chassis
I recently purchased a 1979 Mercedes Benz 280, Camper Van, type 28 chassis, from its origional owner, a 91 year old gentleman, who seems to have forgotten everything about the vehicle. Generally it is in remarkable shape, save some minor cosmetic issues. The truck is actually a 28' T1 van. The only down side is, everything relative to it is printed in German. Is there anywhere I can get a manual for it that is printed in english? He brought it to the USA in 79 and made some modifications. Replaced the gas engine with a diesel and added power steering. Aside from that everything else including the 220 power source was left intact. He also put larger tires on it - does anyone know what size tires origionally came on it, as the tires tend to rub when negotiating a sharp turn. Any help would be appreciated.
