Default Who's doing DIY T1N project in the SF Bay Area?

There aren't a lot of affordable options for service here in the SF Bay, so I've been doing more and more of my own work. Learning as I go. I often wonder if there are others nearby to talk with, share tools, etc.

I'm working on mine on Treasure Island, where I rent storage space.

Hi folks, I work on mine on the coast at my cabin in the woods in Pescadero. Going to slowly convert into camper. Are you still interested in meeting up some time?

While I purchased mine all ready to go from Leisure Travel Vans I probably spend more time working on it than if I was converting it from a DHL van. Just love tweaking it and fixing things that go wrong.

I'd be happy to meet! Not sure I'm gonna have much time to go too far out of the bay area.

I'm in the process of building up a 2005 out in Tracy.

Hi Splithorizon. Bob here in the Sacramento area. How did your van project go for you? I am trying to build up a 2005 T1N but moving slowly.

What’s the rental situation there now? Any spaces available?


Cheers,

For storage there is plenty of space, I know Island Park Storage have containers available and do not object to you doing some van work outside your unit. The disadvantage is they charge extra $100/month for electricity hookup (if you need that) and you need to work outdoors. Sometimes it's busy with other people using their containers so that can be annoying as well. On the other hand I think their price for actual storage is very reasonable, and I think it's 24/7 access.
