Quigley HR 4-season camper/hauler.

I picked up my Quigley High Roof in July 2017. It replaced a 2006 Sportmobile Ford E350 platform) that I purchased as a 2x4 and converted to 4x4. One of the things that I didn't like about the SMB was that it was virtually useless for anything but camping. It's layout was so tight and the roof so short that it could carry little cargo and seating for tall folks was uncomfortable.

So with this one I want to build it so that it is versatile - be able to take out most of the interior to be able to haul lots of stuff, including motos, bikes and building supplies. That should be easy you say.

The other and most important use for my van is that I need to live in it 3-4 days per week 9 months of the year (not summer) in a cold climate (-10 to +10F at night). So I need heat. And a fridge. And water.

I plan on building it in stages.
Stage 1: insulation, roof fan, rear seat
Stage 2: electrical, flooring
Stage 3: heating
Stage 4: plumbing and storage

I have exactly 10 days to get stage 1 done before we head of to BC next week. So let's get started.

After owning the van for less than 72 hours I cut a hole in the roof for the Maxxair 6200 fan. That first drill hole was the toughest. I didn't document that very well, but I mounted it midship, just forward of the second rib from the back using Hein's adapter. Roof is flexy at the front edge of the fan. Will consider how to reinforce.
Used 3M 4200 to adhere Hein's adapter to the roof, then Dicor butyl tape to mount the Maxxair fan mount to Hein's adapter, then sealed it all up with black Dicor lap sealant.

Insulation and Sound Control

Driving the van 1400 miles from Portland I realized that I needed to do some sound deadening and insulation sooner rather than later. An empty cargo van at highway speeds is loud!

I've used butyl rubber sound deadening products (like Dynamite) in many cars over the years and believe they provide some benefits if only the satisfying feel of a Mercedes-like dull thud when you close a door. I couldn't afford Dynamat for this big of a project, so I searched the interwebs and found some good feedback on Noico butyl rubber. Noico is made in Росси́йская Федера́ция. I'm sure Pootie himself gets a cut. Let's lay it down, comrades.

So far, I've used close to two boxes (72 square feet) of the 80mil product and 1 box (50 square feet) of the 50mil product. I covered everything that is easily accessible on the walls (outer wall and inside the reinforcing structure) and ceiling. I used 80mil on the walls and 50mil on the ceiling. I have just about enough left over to do the front doors and area above the driver compartment headliner.

Rolling it everywhere possible. It's a little tough between the internal and external panels. Using hands and improvised levers everywhere else.

Any tips on that?

If you look at the photos, Noico comes in Black or Silver. I used both.

Very nice Steve! I'm shortly behind you! I plan to wait on MG's Transit 4x4 kit though. It should work well with my timing on getting one. I'm pretty sure I see an 'Ecoboost' label on the rear? How do you like, so far.......comrade?

I cheated and skipped ahead. How many sq ft of thinsulate did you use on the roof? I'm waiting on my 148 HR to build as a motovan.

Fan install looks great. Did you put any Dicor over the screws as well yet? I see the screws in the picture. I put a nice coating over the whole flange covering the screws as well to keep any water from leaking in. If you have the butyl tape under the screws I think that would give it some good waterproofing. You can never have enough Dicor though. I even put some on every unused cap that is painted over to prevent them from cracking and letting water seep in.

Why butyl tape and not more 4200?
