    16.00R20 Michelin tire shake at about 40 mph:

    The only issue we had on our trip, was that I had to avoid driving at 40 mph because of a significant tire shake in the front end that seemed centered right around 40 mph. Our MTVR is an AMK23, so it was built as an armored truck, which means that it was built with run-flat inserts, and these...

    We are interested in an app for our phones (Droids), or a chip for our Garmin GPS, or some other way to identify low bridges. We're gonna be approximately 13'2" tall on our trip from Portland to Waco... Any recommendations?

    Moving from Portland Oregon to Waco Texas...

    ...in our 2007 MTVR motorhome, right before Thanksgiving. We are looking at two routes- either south on I-5 to Bakersfield and then east through Arizona and New Mexico into Texas, or east out 84 and then southeast down through Idaho, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico into Texas. If you're along...

    Questions about best route to escape Oregon right before Thanksgiving:

    It appears likely that we will be moving from Portland Oregon to Waco Texas on or shortly after November 20th. My wife would like to head down I-5 south into southern California and then cut across, to minimize our chances of snow, as opposed to heading out I-84 east through the Columbia Gorge...

    Is 383 / 34094 the correct green for our MTVR?

    Our 2007 MTVR is in faded woodland camo CARC right now. We're preparing to paint the exterior of our motorhome box on the back. We're thinking of just painting the box green for now, since we have so much other work to do inside, and then in the spring, respraying the truck and completing the...

    Current situation on SF97s?

    Last time I contacted GP, they told me that NO SF97s are being done right now because the government has stopped issuing them during the pandemic. We're about to start work on converting our MTVR into a motor home, and we'd like to be able to title it, register it, insure it, and hit the road...

    MTVR key-locking outside door handles installation:

    I may cross-post this to other applicable thread(s), but I thought it was worthy of it's own thread in and of itself. Some time back, I contacted Oshkosh Defense, and was eventually able to obtain the correct part numbers for key-locking outside door handles for the MTVR, #3506900 for the left...

    Do lay people refer to your MTVR as a "Deuce and a half"?

    Driver's seat air valve leaking...

    I think the logo molded into the side says "GT" and the part number "3013-4". It crosses to a bunch of other part numbers. Can these things be serviced, or should I just replace it? I think I saw a thread somewhere about a member taking it apart and reversing the O-ring seals in one...

    If you buy an armored MTVR...

    ...they don't bolt the seats or seatbelts down properly when they remove the armor prior to sending them to auction. We found our driver's seat loosely (and I mean LOOSELY) bolted down with only two of the apparently four mounting bolts. The other two were missing. The female halves of our two...

    I found correct-sized wiper blades that work for the MTVR:

    I know there is a part number floating around on one of these threads for 15" wiper blades that fit, but the stock ones are 16", so I kept looking, and found these. I ordered them off ebay, for $18.95 for the pair, including the shipping. They have an NSN number of 2540-00-140-9816 and a part...

    Tools to carry for busting MTVR tires?

    At the very least, I should probably be carrying tools to be able to bust tires roadside. It also looks like I may end up replacing all six tires here in my driveway before that. What tools have you used to perform this task? With the 2-piece rims, I'm not gonna be using tire irons to lever...
