Insulation done, now the bed!

The middle flips up for storage
I've finally completed the insulation.  I am debating on doing the floor still though.  The work has moved pretty smoothly now.  We decided to start the bed, which is going to be 75" long and 39" wide for sleeping.   These pics show the 25.5" portion that will be stationary and serve as the couch mode part.  A 13.5" extension will swing up on hinges for the bed.
This is just temporarily sitting in there, the floor needs to go in obviously.   Will be drilling and screwing it all together, and i think this will be extremely study.  Will update when we get the bed all done :)

Conversion slowly moving forward

I decided to go ahead and make life a little easier at the cost of ..well..money, so I bit the bullet and purchased a fantastic fan vent for the van.  I got it on ebay for $98, the person had good ratings.  I was shocked to see it arrived only 2 days later....and I just paid for UPS ground (tho it was kinda pricey at 14 bucks, I guess its just the size and weight).  I also took a trip to lowes and decided to go ahead and get the foil backed styrofoam panels (4x8).  It ran me under $50 for 6 of them...if that isn't enough ill make up the rest with the narrow reflectix knockoff I have.

The target for insulating at least the sides is to have it done by monday.  I'll post with pics when I get it done.
