Just random update as im prepping for parts to get here.
Finished up a Revel on 35s, and took some side by side

Resetting the shop with two vans (ev3 is here soon as well)
Nice and clean now
Untitled by Grant Wilson, on Flickr

Adding mount tabs to all the framing in order to have hidden fasteners on all future interiors for a cleaner look. Not everyone is like me and likes having pretty screws. So chopped, and punched a ton of tabs

and all welded up.

ill drop them off at powdercoat and start putting it together

Flarespace flares and tern overland windows came in as well, dropping them off to paint today as well as finishing registration.

Floor is being built by my cabinet guy, 3/4 cabinet grade ply flooring for awesome screw bite and mounting.

Trim rings came in for the Flarespace flares.
Took the old walls, and made a new template combining them, and with the trim ring, so now I can have some templates made with my CNC guy to have them around. I have three sets of vans to install currently so it works out well.

So two fans plus 200W of solar, on a 144"? I'd be interested in seeing how you fit panels on that.

I did the same on the last conversion. The Renogy slim panels, at a little over 19 inches with each, just fit between two MaxxAirs. I can’t find a better picture, but this gives you an idea. I’m sure Grant has a better shot of one of his vans.

Thanks, Greg. Very helpful. Still quite a bit of roof left to puzzle in some smaller panels as well I imagine. How do you like having two fans in a 144?
