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 Conversion: Seat Install

What a way to start off our van conversion, by drilling into the floor of our van! :O Talk about a scary way to begin! Needless to say, we stared for hours, we measured for hours, we talked for hours, we drilled and we conquered! This was our first real task for the van conversion, and we quickly learned it was way more complicated that we anticipated. However, live and learn and we’re really happy with how it turned out! We love being able to move the seats forwards and backwards to give us more space inside the van.  We hope you enjoy these videos and subscribe to our YouTube Channel for our most recent videos!

 

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!
