Van Conversion: Sub Floor

Steps…that’s how you get to the end of a finish line. In this step we tackled the installation of the plywood sub-floor. This project was rather uneventful, but required close attention to the cutting. We probably did way more work than was needed with all the stencils, but we’d rather do that than buy tons of extra plywood to redo any mistakes. We purchased 3 sheets and the all worked out just fine, didn’t even have to knock on wood! 😉 We are sooooo happy to be done with this part of the floor, it’s so nice to be able to walk around on it now! We hope you enjoy this video!

Van Purchase & Initial Shakedown

Here’s our video from the day Alan went to purchase and pick up our new-to-us van! We were so very excited to see it for the first time! We were very lucky in finding a unicorn of a Promaster all the way in Connecticut. This was a rare find because it is an empty cargo van (with 2k miles and hardly used). Most cargo vans have high mileage and have been put through the ringer. It’s also rare, because most cargo vans do not have windows because they’re used for deliveries. This one has windows, much like passenger vans. We jumped at this purchase when we saw it and are happy we did!
