Switching to lithium, need installer

I have a 2016 Sprinter that was outfitted in Austin. I'd like to switch from the present lead acid battery system to lithium. Are there any reputable companies/installers in the Northeast or mid-Atlantic region that would be able to install a lithium set up?

I'm thinking of using Relion RB100LT batteries because we use our van through the winter here. There is a space inside the van for 2 batteries.

Difficult on the East Coast - Not many shops familiar with Sportsmobiles, BUT you may look into a prominent RV Service facility that's close by you, or even a Marine Repair Service. There are a lot of Boat/Yacht owners that are requesting the same conversion...I'm sure you could locate one that would be willing to tackle the job.

Now we are considering a trip to Colorado. Any recommendations of installers for our conversion to lithium in CO?

If you are in New York, there is a shop north of you that may take on the project, can’t remember if they are in Maine or Vermont....google “AWOL van conversion” - or something along those lines. I do know they changed their name to “AWOL” a couple years ago - they were also active on this forum back then.
His shop was doing some very nice conversions. Worth a try.

EDIT: Just found the link

Further west than Colorado, but these guys come highly recommended by a Youtuber that really knows his stuff. https://www.continuousresources.com/?aff=14

Check out his series on RV Solar Power https://www.youtube.com/c/ImNotLostImRVing
