With the help of a few professional builders here in Bend, I have configured a very flexible weekender. It has a 100Ah lithium battery system with Victron controller that allows the MaxxAir fan, puck lights, and fridge to run for 3-4 days without driving. (It only takes a couple hours of driving to top it up from that point.) I upgraded the suspension with adjustable (Van Compass) Falcons at the rear and Bilsteins at the front. (I found that the van is too light for their lift with new springs.)I insulated the van with Havelock wool. It has a Smartfloor installed and includes two "jumper" seats. They are as comfortable as the factory seats and include shoulder belts, but can be installed and removed in just a few minutes and positioned in various configurations. It has a ShuksanVans 18×60” slide-out tray for bikes or cargo. Includes an AVC roof rack and Aluminess “backpack” with shovel/ax accessory. Focal upgraded door speakers with small, powered Infinity sub under the passenger seat. It has a driver side bunk that stays setup. A second option for sleeping can be configured over the slide-out tray. If I were keeping it, I'd probably have Field Van install a pop top to allow standing height and more room.

This is a fantastic van that drives and parks as easily as a full-size pickup truck. Fuel economy on road trips is consistently over 18mpg, which is dramatically better than a heavy, tall Transit. There are just a few things to button up like the edges of the ceiling panels. It has Malley wall panels and a partial plywood ceiling. I no longer have shop space to work on it, but the hard stuff is done. It can be used as a weekend camper or emptied easily for use as a cargo van or motohauler.

Within the posted images you will find the complete list of options on the van, plus an accounting of what it would cost to purchase everything new.
