Vanlab build

Any E350 or E250's with a Vanlab build?
I'm considering it and want to know about the quality fit and ease of installation...

Looks pretty cool, if you are much over 5'6", sleeping sideways in an Econoline sucks.

Yeh, not a bad concept...haven't seen this outfit before either.

If you can retrofit four 12v actuators (one on each of the 4 corners from the small seat next to the '40 side door) to raise the seat base & pad up high enough to be level with the mattress bed you might have a little over 6.5ft of sleeping space to stretch out on.

That is a sweet interior kit. One of these and you could be styling...

That looks excellent and not really a bad price for the quality IMO.

I would see if they'll spec a bigger fridge spot. The fridge in their gallery is truly tiny.

I would also NEVER put switches and displays where they did. You're inevitably going to hit those all the time using that seat as a seat, meaning proping a pillow at the back or something. Certainly they can make that change for customers.

Yep, that switch location wouldn't work for me either. Also, I wouldn't go with a switch that sticks out so far.
Nice looking kit, but sideways sleeping wouldn't work for me.
