@Mike Chell - another great video. Thanks for sharing.

I have great admiration for your ability to figure out how to adapt your van to your specific needs and then get the job done. Job well done!

Thank you, very much.  I'm my own worst critic, so it's nice to hear I'm doing better than I think I am.

After seeing what you did with the carpeting, you inspired me to carpet the rear wheel wells rather than seeing the painted body. I'm not mad at you for making more work for me but perhaps my wife might be cause I'm spending more time working on the van instead of doing house chores ;)

LOL  ... I've been accused of inciting others to "leave their wives" ... even if only for a day of fishing.  This might be the first time for this reason.

Have fun fishing and I will miss your mods videos. Perhaps a few of your fishing escapades will help. Enjoy!

Thanks again.  I'll be sure to put up some fishing videos in the near future.

I know, it's got nothing to do with my van ... but it IS a fishing video.  I only caught one fish worth watching ... so it wasn't a GREAT day on the water, but it's Fishing ... and I love to fish.

Another day on the water ... with poor results.  It's been raining, and water levels are high ... that's my excuse !!!

Fun fishing videos, thanks for sharing. I'm waiting for the one that shows the tail fin sticking out the back of the van where you can't close the barn doors.

The one where you declare as you're reeling it in "we're going to need a bigger van"

I like those youtube videos of the guys fishing from the Florida sewer system.

That's funny ... but he's not fishing a "sewer". 

He's fishing a "Storm Drain" which is likely connected to a retention pond just a few yard away.

It's just as good as the guy who fishes Florida storm drains from the side of the road with his van illegally double parked.

Just can't find any numbers ... but still, a bad day fishing and all that.

Hey can anyone give me the exact measurement in the diagram below?

 

I'm building a micro camper interior for the 2014+ TC.

 

 

That measurement is going to be different for SWB and LWB. I have a LWB and I'm seeing 60" for that spot, measured along the side wall. I have a BedSlide in my van, so measuring the center is more difficult, lol.

You may need a small notch where the driver-side barn door latches at the bottom; I don't recall what the hatchback door bottom latch looks like, if that's what your van has or will have. Just something to remember to plan for, especially if you're hoping to put any slide-out drawers at the back door(s).

It's for a LWB.   The measurement will be around 52"  not 60"  Are you sure?  I need someone to measure on the actual metal floor.

 

Thanks

@Justin TC - Sorry, I can't give you a precise measurement because I have a plywood floor covered with carpet. I came up with 54 5/8"

Good luck with your project!

My tape measure was directly on the TC floor alongside the side wall, but measured to the rubber weatherstripping for the backdoor.  I pulled out that plastic trim piece a long time ago, lol.

Thanks to all of you for this idea. I took out the  vinyl, foam, false floor behind the seats and the supports. I put sound deadening squares on the floor (and ceiling and walls) and then plywood. I am building it out as a camper and have used it a few times. I will post pics soon.

 

Have fun

I did the same with my '20 Cargo van, with the addition of 3M Thinsulate in all of the walls, doors and ceiling. Couch unflods into a full size bed.
