    Hi!! I want to buy a new Ford Transit 350 SRB, but has not yet decided what kind of engine is better to take with turbines or standard 3.7. As the engine runs 3.5L V6? How many miles I traveled? There were problems with how the engine or not? as turbines work ?!

    Hello Orton,

    I remember reading your treatise on connecting water sources to the gray water tank via the bottom of the tank to avoid needing a P-trap. Have you actually tested the concept yet? Did it work? I also remember reading (somewhere) about an anti-backup valve. Thoughts?

    Do you ever plan on being on West coast? I am in no hurry to make the change. The wheel covers have been removed. Maybe next year I will be on the East coast if I get the conversion done.

    I cannot find it now but I think it was you that posted a picture of the flume that supplies the air vents in the wagon. To your knowledge, is there a way to put a maxx air fan in the wagon? Thanks, Shawn

    Will help as needed. Best to read my Sprinter-source posts. They are all under "orton-diy" with separate posts for different sections of the build.

    I have sold the Sprinter and expect the ordered Transit in January to begin another conversion. It will be very similar to the Sprinter. Lots of changes/improvements but the layout has worked so well that it will not be changed.

    Dakota & Chelsea stopped by our house on their trip so I have seen their van.

    Have fun with the conversion and at least triple the number of hours you expected to do the conversion. I spent about $20,000 in materials for the Sprinter.

    If you want to communicate directly my email is We live in Occidental which is about 1 1/2 hours north of SF.

    Mind if I send you some questions or ideas on my conversion? I've seen your posts on the Sprinter Forums and just stumbled upon your posts on here as well. I'm planning to have a setup pretty similar to this couple:

    Traipsing About | The Adventure Mobile ? Our Sprinter Camper Van DIY Bike Hauler

    Struggling with the best way to insulate the walls, floor, roof, etc. Concerned about corrosion (live on the Oregon coast).
