Van fitting out.

Post by Surf or Die » Tue Oct 25, 2005 1:30 pm

I now have a van...yippee skippee, hurrah and woo hoo.

Now need to fit it out into my love/surf/WW/MTB wagon. Does anyone have any good ideas for fitting the interior out. Would like a double bed (i like alot of room to thrash around) size-ish sleeping area that can get stowed away and/or turn into some seats etc. Although it has a nice full length roof rack i would like to maybe put some space for a boat aswell in side. I have got a rough idea but was wandering if anyone has come across any hazards, problems etc.

Also i'm roughing out some ideas for putting bike(s) font fork holding device thingy-ma-jingy in also, anyone done the same?

I ask for alot i know...........

Daddy tell me about girls?

Son, one day you will make a girl very happy for a short period of time. Then she'll leave you and be with new men who are ten times better than you could ever hope to be.

These men are called kayakers.

These people have quite a bit of experience with van conversions.
