Any NY/NJ upfitters for "sportsmobile-like" int. conversion?

Just wondering if anyone knows any shops in the NY/NJ area that has experience doing a basic interior conversion for my 2006 shorty sprinter?

Basically looking to do built in storage, insulation, minor electric and walls.

Thanks in advance.....

I'm going to guess there are lots of shops that do boat interiors and could do a van interior. Maybe better and lighter than an SMB conversion.

These guys, in Jersey, have done some work for me and they seem to be a pretty decent outfit.

The guy to talk with is Howard.

Thanks, i had stopped by his shop right before i bought the van, seems like a good guy....but the impression i got is that they seem more comfortable doing "installs" of products they sell [windows, fans, etc] rather than a custom conversion that would involve millwork etc

they are more set up for that, true, but you might still see what they say.

they installed my Fantastic Vent and had to do custom aluminum work to get it to play with the roof rack.

that's a relatively small job, though, compared to a whole new interior.

Hey DirtyJersey:

I'm doing the same thing here in Vermont on an E-250 cargo van. Mostly interior storage/bed/electric. My question is: For the interior build should I use plywood or some other less heavy board? I saw a post recommending KYDEX and also Ultralite from the Moreland Company....anyone familiar with these products?

jjtwister, you might want to do a dedicated thread with your question, lots of experience on the forum with DIY builds/materials......i finally found a local upfitter last spring, they used plywood for floor and walls/ceiling
