I drove Mulligan and showed him off to hundreds at the camporee... where I had hoped to find someone interested in my build and would help attach the bolts... instead I found my volunteer boss who notified me I was removed from my position last November! Ahhh more time for Mulligan now.

I came closer to accepting that the 2015/17 Transit falls far short of the 2003/06 Sprinter and is not really a good substitute.

Orton, from reading that you have SS tanks fabricated for water storage, I've been curious what the cost would be doing it your way for a tank of 13 - 15 gallons. So far the best I've found is going to cost in the neighborhood of $200 after shipping cost thrown in for a polyester water tank. That seems like a lot to pay for such a small plastic container but what are ya gonna do???

If only we could buy new 2003/06 Sprinters. Therein lies the problem.
Actually, we can. They make them in Russia. We just can't import them to the USA.

Tested our Adventure-Van electrical and water system. So far, everything function as expected. I will continue the testing in the next few days.

Next up, bolting floor using elevator bolts. Seven holes pre-drilled just waiting.

Layers under wood: Polyethylene, MLV, Polyethylene. Wood = 12 mm Okoume (Marine Grade)

Trimming the foam I started out using a multi-tool. Quickly discovered that was using a sledge hammer to nail brads. Switched to using a thin flexible draw saw. By far the best tool I can imagine for that specific task. The blade can be laid flat against flat of the metal floor ensuring both sides of foamed gap are cut flush with floor.

I tested the van shore power input and the Bosch 110v electric water heater today. I am surprise and very happy with the initial result of the water heater performance.
I am pleasantly surprise of the short time (approx. 20 minutes) required to bring the water temp from 65F to water heater recommended temp setting.
