Yeah, me too---or binge watch a bunch of TV cop shows with teenage murder suspects.
Nice video, too bad these refits don't happen that quickly in real time.
Re: floor sound deadening etc----didn't pay attention to your full time location but if its in a 4 season climate less is more on the floor. Living in Columbus, Ohio any sort of stock mat or carpeting that uses a fabric or foam underpad attracts and holds moisture to the point those areas become soaked, the wet material almost never ever drying out. I know this from personal experience. (If you're in a very dry climate disregard most of this from me.)
Truthfully fitting the floor with nothing more than 3/4" plywood does about as much sound deadening as you can achieve even with multiple layers of anything else. Once the plywood is in place its typically covered with carpet or other continuous material which slightly enhances sound killing so save some money and don't add too much between the metal floor and whatever is its final cover.
As a test once the floor is completely uncovered drive the van a day or two, take a mental check of the sound level. Next, fit the plywood and repeat the driving test---you might be impressed as the improvement.
I'm not against sound deadening but there are equally effective but less expensive ways to do this.
Looking forward to your progress FNG!
