I chose HDPE because it's puzzling why wood is used in a van build. Plus it's actually lighter and more robust than the upholstered wood panels that SMB creates.

I’m with you. I like the idea of HDPE for most paneling rather than ply particularly if carpet is t going to be used.

Reflectix

Didn't want to spend the hundreds of dollars on window insulation so I cut out some reflectix. Everything except for the door window is held in place by the paneling. Cover for the door window is held up by a couple magnets. While not pretty, you can't see them from the inside once the shades are drawn and I don't care how they look from the outside. I also added magnets to the SportsMobile window insulation for the cab as the crappy little suction cups don't work anymore. A couple $ on magnets and they work better than ever before!

Me too, reflectix works great. If the side door window pieces are cut a little long, they'll fit under the sun visors.

CO2 and Propane Sensor Replacements

Finally got around to replacing the original CO2 and Propane sensors in my 2001 Sportsmobile. I purchased my van in 2018 and it still had the original units installed. I purchased the CO2 sensor from Sportsmobile Reno and the propane sensor from Amazon.

The new CO2 sensor was slightly taller than the original which meant some trimming to the existing hole was required. Instead of pulling all the trim off the van, I decided to trim it in place. Was able to use my multi tool the get the hole slightly larger. A little "chiseling" of the plywood was needed to remove the wood and I had to add a filler strip to the side of the original hole where the folks at Sportsmobile cut the original hole too wide, resulting in the screws not seating adequately.

Then on to replacing the propane sensor. This also required cutting the existing hole larger to fit the newest version (also convert it from round to rectangular). The location of my sensor is between the RB50 couch and the side doors (not sure if this is common). The allowable space was very tight and I had to loosen the electrical outlet and slide it up about 1/16 to 1/8 inch to allow clearance for the new sensor. Also used the multi tool to cut the new hole.

I drilled a big hole in my floor:



Then filled it:



From underneath:



Spent a ridiculous amount of time getting the fuel line attached to the aux port on the tank without dropping or lowering it (see the Webasto fuel line thread for details), but plumbing went smoothly and quickly otherwise. Still need to do final wiring and some minor things, but I made some temporary hookups so I could fire it up tonight.

Basking in 70deg warmth with temps below freezing outside made it all worth it!
