This beauty is a fresh build by professionals, and boasts convenience of space for those who do not want to feel cramped in style. The benefits of this unique open floor plan design are endless. Complete versatility within minutes. The bed comes apart and neatly fastens to the wall transforming your interior from a comfy home to whatever your imagination can do with the space. It opens the interior to haul wood, motorcycles, help your neighbor move, or have a dance party.
The bed is custom made with an eye for beauty and simplicity. Beautifully stained to show the finish of the wood.
The fasteners come apart easily while also ensuring that the bed is absolutely secure when driving.
The walls have been upholstered with a modern and comfy color that complements the warm wood stain. The floor was hand picked to be easy on the eyes, and yet durable, very scratch resistant and long wearing.
The ceiling warms the whole interior with a natural wood beauty, along with the warm colored LED lights all throughout. Need some mood lighting? No problem as a dimmer switch is a hands reach away.
Behind the elegant interior, we chose the best insulation for health and warmth. A natural fiber the does not off gas, has a very high R value and good sound dampening, and will not mold. You can breath deeply in this space.
Not to be overlooked, the electrical was done professionally, so you can rest knowing the wiring was properly chosen and fastened, and with proper safety in mind.
Finishing off the incredible flexibility of this interior, you can add floor brackets that allow for placing a 3 or 4 person bench seat behind the front seats. This enables you to seat up to 6 as it currently is situated.
A high output 200 watt solar panel is mounted on the roof rack. For it's size is puts out some of the highest wattage around. Should you wish to add to the juice, a second panel can be easily placed next to the first, and attached in line with the wiring above the van.
Meanwhile, your electrical toys and needs are fully supported with some of the most popular batteries on the market. Two 6V sealed AGM batteries feed a lot of juice into your interior domain. Importantly, they have been properly wired for safety and to protect your main van battery from draw down. Lastly, these batteries were carefully placed in the best spot possible, under the hood. They are well protected from the elements without taking up your interior space, or being exposed to damage and elements under the van.
To give you the consistent power that you need, a very high quality Power Inverter (pur sine wave) was installed behind the driver seat. It provides a more consistent and reliable power flow than many, and has 3 110v outlets. Additionally, multiple 12v outlets and USB are strategically placed throughout the van for ease of access wherever you are.
Another creature comfort that cannot be beat is the Diesel Heater that runs right off of your diesel tank! Many heat sources add condensation, and potential toxicity through combustion or inconsistent heat. This beauty blows clean, dry heat whenever you need it, and can be easily climate controlled right next to the bed.
But what about hot Summers you ask? With the excellent insulation on top, sides and bottom, it's amazing how cool it remains even on the hottest days. This is achieved by a top quality, powerful 2 Way Fan that has multiple speeds and is known for being very quiet. It's also one of the only ones on the market that can be left open while raining.
With the vented sliding door window, the powerful fan creates an amazing draft inside that keeps the inside temperate. Plus, if you want even cooler temperatures when parked, I can guide you to portable AC units that add a nice chill. For most, this is above what is needed.
While you are parked, both front seats swivel to allow you to face the interior and enjoy your interior kingdom. These swivels are one of few brands that have been crash tested.
The van itself was chosen for the famous four cylinder engine which gets incredible gas mileage. A little research will show that this motor has tons of power: up hills, off the starting line and all around. It has almost the exact same towing capacity as the 6 cylinder which says it all. It just achieves the same power range via turbo instead of a heavy torque motor. And you get the added benefit of much better gas mileage. It boasted 26 miles per gallon on the freeway on a long drive, which included going over mountain passes.
Added convenience comes with a complete tow package already installed: 2 inch receiver hitch and tow brakes installed and ready to go! You can add the trailer the day after you pick up the white stallion.
Don't like backing up? No need to fret. The backup camera shows a clear image day or night and makes it quite easy to park or back up. Built right into the console from Mercedes, it's a nice clear and big image.
Just like the van interior, the title is clean. :)
