We bought a ProMaster van for R&D work. It's a low mileage 2017 purchased from Northland Auto Sales in KC, MO.
Umm...translation, please?First up is to reduce the dead cat clearance in back and get some meats on there.
Sorry that my attempt at humor was vague. It's old guy automotive design speak.Umm...translation, please?
I'm curious why the cost for just the adapter bracket is so high (14x14)?Still no time to work on our ProMaster 136HR because too busy making parts for other van builders. Here is a cool idea...
They are CNC'd offset adapters for an RV vent (Maxxair) on the left and a Dometic Midi Heki on the right. The Promaster is the only van wide enough for this setup. This leaves a bunch of room towards the front for solar panels. I am sure our customer will share some photos after the installation is complete. We have considered installing a Midi Heki skylight on our van. We are a Dometic dealer so can ship the adapter with the skylight.
All the best,
Thank you for your reply. The value of a product is definitely subjective. We sell a lot of adapters (and other products) to professional van up-fitters. Time is money for those folks and they can't afford to have vans come back with leaky roofs. Our design appears to hold up very well over thousands of miles of bumpy roads in all climates. Butyl tape works well for some number of years but beyond that it's survival is questionable. We have definitely saved the day for many folks who have developed leaks after some time due to substandard installation practices not using our adapters. For them the price is money well spent.I'm curious why the cost for just the adapter bracket is so high (14x14)?
I don't know anything about the marketing / development cost / business cost/material costs...so I'm guess that is why?
I found the speaker adapter rings to be great values and made upgrading the door speakers easy. Maybe if the roof trim ring was around $25 - $35 I would have not stacked butyl pieces in the low spots
