Custom Sportsmobile-esque Land Yacht

Hello everyone. I've been lurking around here for a while and this is my first post. My name is Eli. I live in Maine and I have been running a custom woodworking shop for 20 years. A couple years ago I got involved in a custom van build for a nearby client. The van was a Chevy 2500 extended Express van. It got the conversion from Quigley etc., and I did the interior. In doing the project I found a new passion. This is the black van shown below in the first three pictures

Currently, we are working on a Sprinter. It's a 1 ton 4x4 regular body. This is the red van shown below in the last three pictures. We are about 75% completed with the Sprinter. It's purpose is skiing and biking and is built to be a four season van.

Anyway. That's me. That's what I do. I'm on the look out for future interesting builds that require a custom approach. I'm here on the forum to connect with people and to gather inspiration.

My website is below. There are lots more build pics on there if you are interested.

I've been in some high caliber Yachts, and from the pictures provided your work certainly qualifies as impressive... Love the land/Sea vibe !
