«i van» build : 2016 Transit 250 Medium Roof 148 LWB - stealthy campervan conversion

Hi,

«i van» is the biggest project that I ever made.

I read a lot of tips and ideas on this site and I want to share with you my project.

The plan is to do a stealthy campervan conversion for family trips across america.

We choose a custom made interior inspired from Westfalia traditional floor plan for four persons. (2 kids, 2 adults)

The picture was took july 14 2016 pick up date.

This is the plan. I used sketchup and autocad to draw our dream like we wanted it.

We began with a lot of holes on the floor and one on the roof. This was the scary thing of the build
Hole for Webasto and for passive ventilation for DC fridge

Since I will be purchasing the full 7 years warranty and maintenance packages, I have to be very careful to follow the no drill areas in the BEMM or the warranty will be voided. Thankfully with the update (today!) of that, I can see at least SOME place I can drill! hahaha

Like some here I did the insulation of the floor and the roof with polyisocyanurate board and great stuff. 3/4 for the roof with a layer of bluejean for insonorisation - 1/2 strip for the floor with russian plywood.

Awning installation. I used Sprinter installation kit from Fiamma. I cut them and install it on aluminium pieces. Voila!















Now we are ready to drink some beers!
