I have a 2004 Chevy conversion van that I finally got everything removed from and a flooring installed. The van has barn doors on both sides of the van. I am in the process of building a bed frame for the back and thinking of basic things I would need/want in my build. A dog crate is a must in the build as I have a young medium sized anxious dog who needs a crate to feel secure and travel in. I am wondering if there is any specific reason why vans all have the doors on the passenger side and most people build the majority on the opposite. As I said, my van has doors on both sides and I am fine having one door blocked as an entry and just use to open for airflow. I was wanting/thinking about using the door on the driver side as the main entry for several reasons; doors stay propped open by themselves and other side doesn’t, dog’s crate would be behind the passenger seat and I could see him while driving, easier access from drivers side door to van entry. I am totally fine with going against the norm. But curious if there are any reasons I might not be aware of as the why vans have doors on passengers side and any downside to doing a simple build the opposite way.
Thanks so much!!!
