    Interesting Van Window replacements I purchased today from a salvage Van

    They're called Pro-Access, a factory option on the GM vans, pretty neat that they are actuated with the key fob. There are a few folks with these vans over in the camper van forum.

    2WD van in the winter/snow?

    My buddy right over the hill from you in Blue River keeps up with my AWD just fine in his 2wd E350 with snows with one exception - my very steep snow packed driveway. Assuming you can stick to maintained roads and have decent skills, its all about the tires in my experience. Just look at all...

    Vanessa, the Jersey Girl

    Is a high top in the cards? Maybe below a rear bed is possible similar to the sprinter guys. Otherwise maybe something like this setup?:

    N.A.R.V. - 2008 Chevy Express AWD Project

    That's surprising, the 2 benches in my 2007 are NOT interchangeable, the spacing on the mounts is different. That said, I have switched the mounts from seat to seat for my setup but that is not something I would tackle while on the road. Regarding folding, there was a guy who posted how he...

    Pics of your VAN! Post up!

    That is a sweet rig, what bike rack is that? That is exactly what I've been looking for assuming the door can handle the weight when open.

    Scoutkid now has a... Vankid? Ideas for rear seats I can put a kid seat in

    First off congrats! What about adding a jump seat between the front seats like these guys did?: Obviously your mobility within the van is impeded but at least it'll postpone tearing out your interior until #2 comes along.

    05 Tequila Safari (slow build)

    Looking good! I'm curious about the bed padding, especially the way it props up in lounge formation. Did you make that yourself?

    Savana/ Express Van Builds

    I've been hitting up forest roads all over CO and mine does pretty well with a small lift but you need to adjust your technique (momentum is your friend). Doesn't hurt to have a high risk tolerance for damage either. Where the lack of low really hurts you is when you need to use reverse so...

    At a cross roads.

    just came here to second the comments on kiddos, get your setup dialed now cause let's just say they add a ton of variables. Also, 1 random thing i noticed, hitting the grocery on the way out of town tends to be so much easier then a pre-trip visit cause you're already "on vacation."
