  1. The a/c needs outside air to move across the coil on the backside. I had my window unit mounted in a box screwed to the wall of our boxvan with the tail flush with the outside surface and it had an opening on each side to suck in outside air to blow out across the coil(i had an aluminum panel to cover the outside). The drain for the condensation was run down the inside wall and exited below onto the ground. Looks great just needs some holes on the sides to suck in outside air as opposed to sucking inside air thru the cracks of the cabnets and thus sucking in hot air thru the ramp and side door. Best od luck!

  3. Cool. But that wall doesn't look attached very well. I'm super anal about possibly being in a trash compactor in a wreck. You will find limited wheel options. I just got a set last month from Discount Tire and had my year old stock size Michelins mounted to them(no more lost hub caps).Any change in wheel/tire change will throw off your speedo and always make you wonder how fast you are really going. Back-up camera=waste of time and money,back first-then just pull away when you leave. I painted the insides of my back door windows black so they look tinted and I have limo tint on my side door glass as well as the factory pop out window out of a window van on the drivers side,dark legal tint up front. For seats in the rear before I got the airplane seats I had 2 factory captains chairs mounted to a 3/4" piece of plywood that I screwed down to the 3/4"plywood floor I put down. I could pull the seats out with no trouble at all. Best of luck!
  4. This is a great start. The wall is where I put mine. Looks like this one has a nice finish panel kit in it. 3 to 4k seems like a pretty good deal dependent on how well they took care of it. Mine is white also with only one moto sticker. I put a chrome non step bumper on it to make it easier to load and unload both the dirt bikes and jet ski. My stereo is 2-200 watt amps and I have an eq that I run my iphone thru. I have 2 set ups for the front. I have a complete deck that comes up to the console and is about 14" off the floor that sits on plastic crates and is made of 3/4" plywood with carpet on it and the wall. My other set up is a set of 3-seats out of a jet liner that mounts to some ancra floor tracks. The deck is great for traveling,I set it up with a foam cushions and I usually snooze while the wife drives and she does the same. The seats are great when I have to haul people.
  5. Bought my extended e350 with pw,cruise/tilt etc(wouldn't buy a van without power windows,tilt,cruise,and a v8).,63k on the clock for $6500 2 years ago. I did have to build an interior but that was no prob.
  6. My e350 extended has a wall,I wouldn't want to have a van without one. I wouldn't buy a van without a v8 period. Ours has a 5.4 and almost gets 18mpg sitting on 75mph. Just got back from a trip to Florida(929 miles one way in 14 hours). Will sell you my boxvan for 15k,thats a bargan.....no one is building them anymore.

One trip I made was to the Terlingua Ranch in southwest Texas(about 650 miles from Dallas) with 5 guys and gear, 3 bikes inside and 3 in a 12ft enclosed trailer. Loves to sit on 80mph on the highway. Got 28k in it plus the 1000 hours it took to design and build. Bullet proof 460ci ,does not drink a drop of oil and will run all day(I know because we ran it 16+hours straight driving to Florida). I bought it with 107,000 miles on it from Ryder. Fleet serviced for the begining of its life and I have been anal about oil changes and service since we got it. 149,000+ miles now and going up. Gas milage is dependent on how much you run the generator. In less than 5 minutes my pit is set up with my bike on the stand with the awning out. Its a great truck but we want something bigger(motorhome with bathroom and kitchen). It would cost over $60k to build another like this. There are alot of junk boxvans out there and this isn't one of them. Thanks for looking!
  8. I knew you wouldn't last.

  12. The van is the fattest in the middle. The rear doors are a few inches shorter than in the middle. I use the removable chocks with the slide mount. I just dry walled screwed the mounts thru my 3/4" plywood floor into the metal floor of the van(It would take a hell of a crash to shear all 4 of the screws). My cargo extended has a wall and I hook the tie downs at the top of the side walls in some factory holes(its a hold up system as opposed to a hold down system). It has very little pressure on the shoe on the floor. Watch your knuckles because its very close going thru the door frame. I use a 2x8 with a ramp lip from Home Depot for a ramp and put my stand about 10" from the bumper to step on during loading. Good Luck!
  13. Wall for me in my '03 e350 extended. 3/4" plywood floor for insulation and sound deadening plus it gives you something to build on top of. 1/4" ply on the walls and celing.
