I bought my first Transit Connect (2011 cargo van) in May and have been busy converting it since.  It's my first conversion, so its taking forever and I'm making lots of mistakes.  Still, the TC is exactly what I wanted, and so far I'm happy with the conversion.  The bed frame is a sofa by day and pulls out to a bed at night, and is hinged to provide access to the house batteries and jack.  This month I'm working on a desk module with a pull-out kitchen shelf.  I hope to have everything ready for a shakedown cruise in late September so it's ready for some long road trips next summer.

There appear to be blinds covering the side/rear window.  Where did you find those?  :)

Actually, those are acoustic panels to absorb reflected sound.  I plan to do a video blog of my road trips/tours, and this will cut down on echo just a little, and also help with road noise (but not much).  I kind of like that they look like blinds - makes it feel more like I have a window.

Ah, acoustic panels, good idea.  My son keeps his stereo up so there is no road noise...LOL.  He is on the road in his 2012 TC from LA to Oregon for two festivals, the last one being an Eclipse festival.  He loves his TC:shift:  He couldn't be happier in it.  His elevated bed is working out great for him.  He sleeps in it regularly and enjoys his travels.  I hope you do as well :yahoo:
