I've looked at Quigley and sportsmobile and the one out of Colorado. I've got my plan together. It's just the execution now.
As far as odb I bought mine of eBay for 20$ not sure there is much difference between them.

Well ths week I got a table built and started on the beds and couches. Also got the new head unit installed with back up/load camera.

The couches open up on one side for storage, which also makes them reclining loungers. The heater/ac unit for the rear has been kind of a pain to work around but I hope its worth having.









Obviously everything needs to be stained and sanded. Also the cabinets need to be built to the rea of the beds. All the cushions need to be covered also, but she couldnt start on them till november.

Awesome weekend. The 4 of us camped in the van at the Onion Run. It towed great with no issues. Lots of power, and other than the trailer bouncing some I really didn't notice it was back there. Thumbs up to van tow/camper rigs.

Didnt get alot done but heres a few pics anyway. The heater was a little fun to build around but it looks descent and I made a plastic cover for the other side with some panels from the back. TVs w built in dvd players and usb hook up to watch go pro videos and keep the kids quiet. Switches came in yesterday so I can get those in and get this wiring wrapped up.

Any updates? I think I am going to do something similar. I want to be able to put a four wheeler inside while towing my Jeep, so bed(s) will fold up. I like the wood floors and captains chairs. I was bouncing between truck, suburban, excursion, truck, tahoe..... 3/4 or 1 ton passenger van will do what I want and they are quite a bit cheaper than the other options. I am pretty sure I have made up my mind.

Been a long cold winter but finally starting to get back to work. Got a new front light bar on today and working on the massive roof rack. Still have to weld on the light tabs and roof mounting brackets. Then coat the whole thing. Nothing really new on the inside but I did get the wiring all wrapped up and switches installed. Still need to do lighting and the plug for when I'm at a park or wherever there's shore power. The seat cushions are getting there covers right now and should have them back soon. Anyways. Back to work. Click image for larger version
