I just got a 2013 E250 Quigley 4x4 5.4 cargo van extended body.
I copied this post from my presentation post in the "welcome mat" section of the forum.
Our idea is to build the van during 2017 to start using it on 2018
We would really love to do a west's (50) interior layout, since the van is an extended body we think we can fit a porta potty or cassette in a small enclosed room (more like a big closet) at the back, just for rainy nights, emergency's and for my little girls!!! we would have to go over the bed to get to it or go from the outside.
The current ruff plan is:
Pop top. (probably CCV medium)
Swivel seats. (just read that i can`t doit on the drivers seat with a manual transfercase, is there a way around it? i really want 2 swivel seats)
Sportsmobile type windows (were can i get them?)
Water tank on the spare tire location, as big as it can be.
Gasoline powered waco or eberspacher hydronic. (where to mount it?)
Waeco coolmatic CRX80
3 125w solar panels (21amp in total) with a 20 amp controller, would that be ok? i already have those, don`t want to get another controller. battery capacity: open to suggestions.
I would be cool if i could turn the rear par of the bed in to a back facing bench with seat belts and a side window so i could set 7 people for short travels.
We want to take a couple of months to get suggestions on the layout for our needs, 2 adults, 2 small kids and some sort of bathroom.
We are open to all suggestions since we are new to the van world and more used to camper's
