Recommended Posts

   

For those of us that are taking the normal route of the camper build, is this the right spot to post our threads?

When I first got my Transit I did an aftermarket head unit and added two extra speakers and subs then I did a reverse camera (I have a 3 window cargo van) 

as far as future build plans I'd love to custom convert to a wagon and camper at the same time be able to take friends to do Alaskan things and also be able to camp in the van. I've always wanted to take the transit to the Arctic circle during aurora season

Great section.

I own a 2011 using it as a food catering and delivery truck. Like it so much I bought a 2012 on Saturday (Would you believe I am a life long Chevy guy?)

I'll post photos of the delivery truck as soon as I figure out how it is done.

I keep toying with the idea that i want a cabover camper shell.  But this conversion is a pretty good way to do more, with less space.

Water gets into the doors of just about all cars  -  There are drains in the bottom of the doors to let it run out.  Rusting problems usually occur when those drains get plugged up and the water sits in the seam at the bottom of the door

Just wanted to show off the TCLWB

Installed some Thule bars and a Maggiolina Roof top tent, swapped interior lights to LED and thats pretty much it for now.

We can use it as a daily driver and it sleeps 4 if we want to go camping and hit some trails

I always wanted a "Hippie" van, so after I retired, I bought a Transit Connect and went wild.

1,148 RGB LEDs, two color organs to drive them, a 400 watt amp built into the upper cargo bin, an extra 550 amp battery on the passenger side, half inch foam on the cargo area floor, and 50 square feet of denim insulation stuffed everywhere I could put it. She rides a lot quieter now.

I was taking a lot of notes as I watched Jay Droeger's build video ... looks like a relatively easy build, and has some pretty slick ideas to maximize space with easy setup. One change I might make is to split the slider into thirds to make it more flexible for seating and setting up the bed for the night. Maybe put the kitchen section on heavy duty drawer slides so it can be slid out the door when weather permits. Part of the grand plan is to add an awning over that door anyway which should keep things dry if the wind cooperates ...
