We're an "outdoorsy" family (for some definition of outdoorsy), and over the years have considered picking up campervans of different types. Stars finally aligned in July 2021 and we were able to aquire a fresh-from-Japan 1993 Mitsubishi JB500. It's German-made fiberglass camper shell on top of a Mitsubishi Delica Truck chassis. It's old, but it seems reliable, was a lot cheaper than a kitted-out Sprinter, has 4WD, and is unique / lovable!

I'll likely update this page from time to time as we learn more and complete various projects...
The camper arrived with 2 original manuals, which - combined with Google Lens - were helpful in figuring out how some of the systems work.
I've scanned and uploaded them, in case useful for other JB500 owners:
