Default '97 Ram 2500 Van Conversion questions

Just bought a 1997 Ram 2500 Van conversion. It appears to have been converted by a company called Coachman Vans. I can't seem to find much on the net about this conversion company. Any ideas?

Also, the side mirrors both fold back as you are driving down the road. I have pulled the driver mirror off and tried to put teflon tape around the mirror post to make it a tighter fit in the sleeve that provides friction to keep it in one place. Well it didn't do the trick....[sm=headbang.gif]

Any ideas on a permanent fix?

TIA!!

Bob

I had the same problem with my 96 I solved the problem with red RTV.
I would score (roughen up )the plastic outside piece for a better hold.

Many of the conversion van compaines went belly up back in the mid 90's.

Try the outfit that purchased out Glaval, Mark III, Tiara, Coachmen, PrimeTime and other van converions. The company is CPC. http://www.cpcparts.com

They purchased out the name brands, tradenames, OEM rights and all of the OEM tooling and inventory.

The only other conversion van company CPC doesn't have is the tried and true StarCraft; The industry leader for the best build conversions.

Jeremy,
I think you roughed up the inside of the white plactic sleeve and put the RTV inside it to bind up the mirror post, right?
