Re: GTRV Conversion on a Ford E350 EB

Thanks for the kind words, guys.

Mike, that Porsche is a kit car. With all the 'glassing and cutting and sanding in that shop, that car could have been put up there last week and still looked like that! Having said that, I do believe it has been up there a long time.

So true. There are compromises with everything, particularly in a Class B conversion. We are happy.

To the best of our sleuthing abilities, she is a Belgian Shepherd cross, in particular a Malinois. Probably crossed with a larger dog, such as a yellow lab.

I am going to have some insulation panels made up for the roof canvas. I have been using Therm-a-rest pads in the meantime. Even at -20c, it's been toasty warm with the heater at a very low setting. The Airtronic kicks ass.

Re: GTRV Conversion on a Ford E350 EB

Thanks for the detailed writeup and pics.

The GTRV interior looks very well done and I like the way you've designed the two beds in the lower level.
