I never tried to sleep in a wagon, but I'm sure a van would be more comfortable on that matter. Well, even though I usually like wagons more than sedans, nobody can deny that vans are by far the most practical type of vehicle.

oh no, War wagon is good to sleep in, even if i have to bend my legs.

But a trailer that could be equipped with a bed and a heater would be more comfy IMO

Hmm, i wonder if i could wrap a copper pipe around the exhaust pipe in War wagon, and run two small hoses to the trailer and install a small radiator in it, while having a small pump. maybe have the spiral go through a water reservoir for drinking water?

so when i park i would have a warm trailer and water

a crude paint thingy Click image for larger version

Not sure if that exhaust-heated setup would be so easy to implement, and to keep the hoses safe from punctures due to debris on the road.

I considered a similer thing(trailer heat) with my 5th wheel .
I thought simpler and easier than exhaust , engine coolent. Less chance of stoping to find my cats and dog CO2ed after 12+hrs on the road.
Add .5"return and .75"feed pipe (isolated) to the rear bumper use hydraulic quick disconnect(QD), they seal both male and female unlike air QD, and a slinky hose to a set of QD on the trailer , heater core from a 15 passenger van.with a 12v fan blowing into the floor duct for the stock heater. Before someone says ,Why not just use the heater that came with the ducting? This was a transit problem can't use the furnace @55mph ,keeping the water lines and tanks(60ga fresh, 2x20gray, 40 black) from freezing during winter travel over Donner Pass and others below 0f at times. But life changed and I didn't get that far with the idea.
---
For exhaust a 2"+ umbilical cord would be needed,and high mounted to give enough slack /flexibility for turning. Do you have a catalytic converter? If so that would be my sorce of heat. 600-800f a cat starts to work .by the time you got to the trailer it should have cooled sufficiently. Passive or forced air?

A heat-exchanging setup based on coolant fluid recirculating between a trailer-mounted heater core and the exhaust muffler might not really become a danger for carbon monoxide poisoning, but anyway, it would still require thermostatic control to not become excessively hot. Similar setups have been adapted into trucks repowered with air-cooled Deutz engines.

CV joint on the left sh*t itself, started to make noise.

removed the rubber boot, but didn't get the joint off.

finally put it together and drove 25 miles to my friend's workshop with a dry, beaten cv joint. Was funnily quiet the whole trip

also found out a brake pad was stuck, and completely worn out.

bought new pads.

the whole ordeal cost me 60 bucks to fix though not so expensive, thankfully

changed the oil to the same brand i have used now, but now it has "fuel saving" tech. We'll see lol if it makes a difference
