New to the forum just wanted to say hi! Picked up 2018 2500 promaster 159 high roof. Planning to convert it to live full time. Rent prices in san francisco/bay area is ridiculous. Will definitely take pictures of my build and keep you all updated. Ive been lurking around for a bit and did alot of research for interior insulation and got some awesome ideas for the design. If anyone from san francisco/bay area want to help me that would be cool or give me some pointers would be greatly appreciated

Congrats and nice picked up !! Don't know why anyone to live in SF or Cal for that matter. It's so ridiculous expensive state to live in well except for good weather yearly around. Used to flew (SFO) in Monday morning and flew out Friday afternoon coming home for past 5 yrs or so

Wow! The whole van fits on an SF driveway. When we visited my son in SF, we had to park our 136" with its front into the street between parked cars and there was just enough room for pedestrians to squeeze behind it.

I will be in SF in a few weeks. I'll shoot you a PM.

I'm in the South Bay and doing a build now, happy to exchange ideas. (That reminds me - I need to update my build thread)
Goodmorning. What route did you take for Insulation? If you went the polysio way did you have the foil face facing inside the van or against the metal?

Polyiso 1" dual-face foil (HD/Lowes), but I only used it for the floor. If you have single-foil face, I'd recommend foil facing the van. I used Thinsulate for walls/roof.

All the polyiso I have ever seen has foil on both sides. One side is aluminum colored and the other is dyed or painted. silver side towards the air space not the side you glued to. It’s a reflective surface and you want that to have a gap to work with.

What do you guys think about not covering all the insulation with wood? I was thinking it would be covered by cabinets/drawers etc.

That will be fine. My ceiling is 1” polyiso with headliner fabric glued to it, nothing else. Nothing needed inside cabinets but a glued on fabric would look nice, be cheap and quick.
