Van Build about to start....

The forum has been great for ideas and appreciate all the info thus far. Couple pics from bringing it home yesterday from Portland.

Working on having Colorado Camper Van install a pop top and RV Interiors do the inside work. Photos and info to come.

Wow thats a lot of volume to fill up! I wonder if there's a steel roll cage inside that fiberglass roof? I guess you'll find out when the cutting starts.

Nice looking van.

I love my Quadvan.

John and Blaine stand behind their work.

Keep us posted on the progress.

Re: New to me QuadVan interior build out about to start.

Thanks all, really looking forward to the project.

Don't know about the roll cage inside yet...

The Quadvan visit was great. Those guys are very helpful and realllllyyyyy took their time with the pickup process. John put the van up on the rack before I left to tweak a few things and show me everything. It drove great down the coast but needed the tires rotated and balanced. Literally did that the minute I got home. Dropped off the wife at the front door and went to Discount Tire.

Was hoping to have this be a mini vacation and photo excursion but my primary camera broke the first day out.....normally don't carry my spare on vacations. Lesson learned. The Oregon Coast is one of my favorites places.

Quick pic just before the mirror box in my camera exploded....

Well I guess your camera fulfilled its role in life with that shot and said "my work is done" and quit.

Great pic!

Herb, I can't blame it....over 500,000 frames on this one without a problem. They are rated for 200,000 or so. I got a few more before it's death but ended up switching to the iPhone for a lot of them and a....

Re: New to me QuadVan interior build out about to start.

Had an Aluminess ladder put on today. Have a whole list of parts that are being added but on hold for a few days to review the list. Stopped out to visit with Peter and Katherine of Adventuretrek while they were having their roof rack test fitted. Wanted to chat with them about their build with RV Interiors. Aluminess had the ladder in stock so they installed it while there. Very happy with it.

Also had a brief discussion with Dave, Kenny and Tim at Aluminess. All great to work with and it was nice to hear suggestions from Dave on how to save a little money on some things I could do myself.

Had a great meeting with Jeff at RV interiors yesterday. Working on a final wants/needs list this weekend to start the process. Great meeting with Peter and Katherine to share ideas. They are the vehicle next inline so it will be great to see their build progress.
