Thank you very much. I tried to put a biking theme where possible. I had to have the aluminum bars cut and rewelded. They also sandblasted and I will probably paint flat black in the near future.

Looks great! Would be interested in seeing some more pictures of the inside. Trying to design something similar in nature so I can seat a couple people as well as make room for the obligatory quiver of bikes!

If you want to send me your email, I will be happy to send you additional pictures of the inside. It was tough to get everything I wanted and also fit 6 people and 4 bikes. The bed is mounted on E-track so I can lower when not carrying bikes or if I use bike racks on the front or rear receiver. The seating for the additional 4 with two bench seats is tight and prevents access to the refrigerator but the seats can be removed with 4 nuts.

Morehead Design Labs in Asheville, NC. Currently in the process of changing their name to Blue Ridge Adventure Vans due to change in ownership. You can search them on the web. Thomas Coffee is new owner and they do a great job!

Sweet Rig and setup! Are the cabinets holding up to getting jostled around on the road? Also, what model fridge is that!

Cabinets are hand built and are holding up quite well. I have removed some as I would prefer more room above bed and less cabinet space. The fridge is an Isotherm 4 cu.ft that was purchased from West Marine. I love it!

I like that e-track bed! We're thinking of doing something similar. Do the brackets rattle a lot when you are driving?

thx
