COMPLETED E-350 DIY Project!

After 6 months of weekend only conversion work, the former catholic school 15-passenger van, now known as the Adventure Van, is finally complete and just survived its first 5-day camping trip to the Ozarks. Thanks to SMB TX for the Pop-Up Penthouse and wiring system.(even though we had to drive it from KY and back) After getting over the initial anxiousness of taking it on its maiden voyage,everything worked perfectly. Can't wait for our next trip and other fun options we can add.

Nice work indeed!

But aren't "completed" and "DIY project" contradictory statements, especially on an SMB van?
