2011 SMB with sprayed foam insulation

Found this while surfing. Apologies if this ad has been posted by someone else. I had a quick look and didn't see it.

What I find most interesting is that the owner had the van fully insulated with spray foam and then delivered it to SMB-TX for conversion. I assume the conversion would have been priced as a custom job since surely the standard Sprinter cabinets wouldn't conform to the new coutours of the sprayed walls.

I really dig the high R-value insulation!

We had ours sprayed but it was done just between the "studs". Was rather messy when SMB-N installed the penthouse, even though I had removed most of the roof foam prior to their starting the job.

When I took my Sprinter to SMB for cabinets & other parts, I learned that the cabs are prebuilt extra deep, then trimmed to match the contour of your particular wall. So, every conversion is semi-custom.

Rolling Man Cave. He 's been trying to sell for a long time. Probably would have sold already with windows. I know. How about cameras hooked up to the big screen. Save a lot on Windex.

Our van was converted in 2000 and the penthouse was added 6 years later. Saw no rust or any other distress when I removed the foam for the top.
