Re: Carpet van liner

Exactly my thoughts. For the price, you think it would come in more colors than grey.

Re: Van Build about to start....

If you don't mind doing some measurements, that would really help out. I just want to know the depth and height of your box support, and the same for each cushion if that's alright. Thanks!

Re: Dude With Van's First Homebuild

You're welcome!

I am not from Canadia (I like saying it that way), but frequent there and happened to be here and work on my van at the same time.

Re: Van Build about to start....

Cool. So you don't know the brand? I ask because I just got putting mine together and I wanted to know the dimensions. Mine is decent, just not that comfortable as a seat. More for sleeping. But...

Looks great. Where did you get that couch? Is there space underneath the cushion?

90 Degree Magnetic CB Mount?

I'm not ready to commit to a spot on my van, so I want a magnetic mount as I wait. I'm using a 36" antenna and looking to find a way to place it just above my rear tail light, magnetically. Below...

Bed Rug Anyone?

Right now I have 1/2 of rigid foam and 1/2 plywood as my flooring, and looking to add carpeting on top of that. Anyone have experience with a Bed Rug? They seem pretty nice and fit in perfectly. ...

Re: Insulation questions

For the Floor:
I started with layering with EZ Cool as well as the other bubble foil stuff, I'd suggest EZ since it's easier to work with. I then put down 1/2" of rigid foam, and then 1/2" of...

Re: Finally built me an overhead console thingy

Where did you get your carpeting? I'm finding that the one I'm using now is too think. It also had a rubber backing which makes it harder to work with. Thanks

Re: Dude With Van's First Homebuild

So, thanks East Coast Build's pictures (bhodi) I finally decided on the bed I think will work best for my camper/work van.
