Building an Adventure Van

This is a Colorado guy who is doing a first rate job making his Sprinter a comfortable home away from home. First post was

Wow. Very detailed and amazing pictures! Where is that? Looks like maybe BC, Washington state.

Its pretty cool that you convert the Sprinter into this. Very impressive.

I have been reading that thread and noting the number of things I don't have to do to my Promaster.

1. Add an aftermarket backup camera
2. Add a stereo
3. Make everything fit to walls that curve
4. Worry about diesel problems
5. Worry about rust and a poor paint job.
6. Worry about getting stuck with rear wheel drive.
7. Worry about finding a place to get service and parts.

Otherwise, I kind of wish I had that classy three pointed star on my vehicle. My friends all drive Porsches.

Geek gave me a tour of his van a year or two ago, it's pretty cool. It won't hold more than one motorcycle inside (with the bed folded), but I'm sure he can fit a few bicycles.

I have followed his thread there (my username is the same on advrider, btw), and I am planning a similar build, but with a 159 tall roof PM. That way I can have two vintage racing 2 stroke street bikes in the back (or my dirtbike), and a crew cab seat by the sliders that can fold down into a bed.

I am not a heavy duty camper, so I don't plan to install a bathroom, but will have an auxiliary heater, fridge, burner and sink - basically what a VW Westie has.

I really like that he built his cabinets with the Bosch Rexroth aluminum framing system:


search his thread for 'extrusions'
