The result is that we can sleep through the morning and art gets set up on time, shifts aren't missed or done in a questionable state, and things just work. No, it's not green, but then nothing about BM is.

Next year an AC is non negotiable for me

Just found what I liked at a fabric store... chose something durable, easy to clean and close to "sportsmobile" stock material

Update: I f*cking LOVE this van.

I scored a box for the racks and mounted some MAXSA Escaper Buddy mats on the rack.

Just came home from a trip down the NorCal coast. Camped in comfort in the rain the whole way down. No setting up or breaking down a wet tent!

The pucker factor when we discover suddenly and quite unexpectedly that sinking brake pedal is monumental.

Glad you're okay!
