05/2022. Update. This stuff is old. Possibly useful.
Welcome to my short little page on my RV Super 8? I'm Mike Stewart and Im building one of these. What's a Super 8? Well is is basically a Vans RV 8 with a big motor on it. Why the big motor? Well to go fast of course. There are lots of reasons. This is not a Rocket, Harmon or F1. Its an RV! And its not my first either. Want to learn more about the RV vs. HR vs.F1 story? Go here:
My goal is to provide some information to others about the Super 8. Im not going to build a whopper website. Been there done that. But I will provide what I think is the extra information necessary to wet your whistle about the Super 8.
First I'd go to the FAQ for answers. If that doesn't work, send me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Don't expect long drawn out explanations for stuff. Trying to balance time with detail here. Here is a fastback Super 8 of JJ in Kansas. Very cool.
