Hi-
New guy here with long term plan to do a relatively simple conversion. Elevated bed in back, bike storage, and ideally removable passenger seating.

Playing with layouts, and have read meany of the posts on this site.

What I haven't found is actual drawings of the cargo dimensions of the various wheel bases- particularly 136 and 159.

I figure they must be somewhere, and wonder if somebody can pont me in the right direction.

Thanks-

HH

Why is the load floor length dimension much shorter in the upper graphic?
Because of Cargo wall. Seats tilt back a bit. The floor specs are correct on the lower pictures.
But seems a little short on the first pics.

Yup. Helpful, thanks.
Any idea how wide the door opening is?
I figure somebody must have it sketched out on grid paper.

I am still a ways away from the project, but it is going to happen, and reading all these build threads has been inspiring.

Wonder why sliders are so wide compered to old vans? It is so a forklift truck can load a standard pallet of cargo in through the side. For long vans two pallets can be loaded from the rear, the limit of reach for basic forklifts.

If you're not going to do a kitchen etc in there then the 136" Hightop would work.

We have a cooktop and plenty of counter space in our 136 (even a low roof!). No sink, but we wanted a seat back there instead. It's all about priorities.

??? I've got 52" of counter in my 136". I could make this one 5' or so and add another 2-3' on the other side if I wanted. Some people don't have that much kitchen in their stick-and-brick.

The OP did not list a kitchen area as a need. Of course you could fit something. His question was what size van for his listed needs. A 136" could easily meet his goal, especially if he didn't want a kitchen area.

We are considering a PM136 R&D build and would love to see some layouts.

Thanks,
