Hey, guys! Glad that I found this site. There's all kinds of great info here. I have a 15 Titanium that I got an awesome deal on and have done some camping in with seats flat. But I knew that something was missing. It was a no-brainer that by removing the seats I could gain at least 6" of headspace. r1alvin and Don Shockley, among others, have provided some great info which motivated me to do a more thorough build out. At this point, I've got the rear area stripped and ready for the flooring. Thinking of going with a dense foam for sound/heat barrier, then install .05 sanded plywood topped with adhesive vinyl flooring. Anyway, that's where I'm at for now. Any input and suggestions would be awesome. And I think it's worth mentioning, I'm on a tight budget. Who knows... I might become a permanent van dweller.
I'm searching for a TC to drive / add a bed platform for frequent rock climbing trips in California. Parking here is a nightmare so I'm optimizing for the shortest length that I can reasonably sleep in (5'10"). I'd prefer a wagon so that I can remove the bed & put the seats back in for group trips. Options: A.) I absolutely love the 2014/15 SWB TC's with the 1.6L turbo. The SWBs look great and the 1.6 offers slightly more power/economy. This is my top pick but the specs show the distance from the front seat @ the belt to the rear doors is only 60.9 inches (5 feet). I assume this is with the 2nd row seats removed? Do the front seats lean forward? Does anyone know of any SWB conversion posts? I can't find them... especially if the owner is 5'10" or more. B.) 2012/13. Great overall length & extra height but slightly less peppy & less efficiency. Few wagons for sale. Less frills overall and they seem to cost about the same as low-mileage 14's. Bad safety ratings. C.) 14/15 LWB. Argh, I'm just less excited about these overall. They seem too long for my needs. http://www.ford.com/trucks/transitconnect/specifications/interior/
I am loving my new little Woody TC! Just returned from a week in Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Parks. Have a few ideas now of how to make this work even better for camping. It is definitely a conversation piece. Posted more photos in the gallery section. I don't surf . . . but my last name has to do with a well known Southern CA surfboard company. I do quilt so in the next few weeks, I plan to make a surfboard/Woody quilt for the van as well as some curtains and even a dressing room for the rear open doors. It is a work in progress. Wrap done by: http://www.iconographystudios.net/ Surfs Up!
I am still working on tweaking the inside. I did not want an industrial look nor did I have the desire to carry what looked like furniture. I do not need built in cabinets etc. I want to camp, sit by the fire, enjoy the outdoors but with less work than pitching a tent involves. I have also learned that in inclement weather, I want to stay dry. I put a twin mattress with a 3 inch memory foam topper inside, on a twin wooden platform that is slightly elevated by bricks wrapped in towels so as not to be abrasive on the base of the mattress. Under the wood frame I have some room for storage such as for my single burner butane stove, Ziplock bags, etc. I still may work out a pull out tray system of some kind.
