Richards Outstanding Van Conversion: Part 2–Insulation, Flooring, Solar
This is part two of a story on my good friend Richards Dodge van. As I said last week he is selling his wonderful van because his plans changed suddenly and he is able to return to his wife in Thailand Here are the details on the van:
it’s a 2001 Dodge Ram 3500 1 ton extended camper van 5.9 liter, automatic,136,000 miles. I’ve lived in this home on wheels for the past 2 months while touring the US almost 13,000 miles. It has been very dependable. I was planning to live in it for up to 5 years so was getting it comfortable and invested over $20,000 for the build, tools any repairs and appliances. However, my plans have changed and will be moving back to Thailand much sooner than expected. All appliances, stove, sink, fridge/freezers, heater, tools and solar system are all new purchased since June 2013 and I have all receipts.I am asking $9500, but since I’m in a hurry to get back to my wife in Thailand I will consider any reasonable offer. I’m currently located in southern California and headed to the Thai Embassy in Los Angeles on Tuesday morning and would love to leave soon after. My cell # is 903 573 2982.
In this post I want to look at details of how he converted the van because I think he did such an exceptional job.
Insulating and Covering the Walls
Covering the Floor
Installing the Roof Rack, Vent and PVC Tube
Building the Interior and Bed
As usual, this post got too long. So I will have a third post on Richards van covering his solar power install.
