Insulating over the cab-We decided to insulate over the cab. To keep it simple we decided to use Havelock Wool. There is not a lot of room for rigid foam, and we wanted to make sure whatever we used would not impair disassembly for future service.
Adding jump seats to our Promaster-With the extra space in this extended van, we thought it would be nice to be able to bring along a couple of extra people safely, and also be able to use these seats for lounging and eating.
Installing Arm Rests-We wanted armrests on the front seats of our new Promaster. I have a glitchy back, and I really like being able to support my back a bit on the armrests when driving. The driver seat has a right-side armrest, but the left side “armrest’ is built into the door and about a mile and a half away from my elbow. The passenger seat does not have any armrests at all.
Propane Remote Fill-Since the propane tank is pretty well tucked under the van, we definitely wanted a remote fill kit. For this part of our build, we used the Nashfuel Propane Remote Fill Kit with Mounting Bracket.
Mounting a propane tank under our Ram3500 van-At this point in our build, we do not have the entire layout perfectly planned and pinned down, but we were pretty sure of how the propane tank was going to end up so that work could be done before the interior layout was settled.
We got a van!-We are building a fully contained camper (translation -- has water and a full shower and toilet set up) that is agile enough to travel the backroads and fit in a regular parking spot. This is our starting point.
