Hi there! New to the forum and we just purchased a Promaster LWB extended w/ a high roof.
We’re wondering about doing this build in parts. We don’t have the budget to do everything at once, so we’re starting with the bed frame, flooring, insulation and fan. (Probably starting out with a Yeti 400 to power the fan as needed.)
Eventually we want to mount solar panels to the roof and wondering what is the best way to “prep” the van for that step in the process. We want to insulate but also leave enough space in the roof to drill holes later on the thread our wiring through. In other words, we want to get the van ready for staging this part of the build, but we don’t have our batteries and solar panels quite yet…perhaps in a couple months.
Does anyone have any recommendations and/or diagrams for this step in the process?
We don’t want to set ourselves up for failure down the road because we essentially enclosed the whole van in insulation and forgot to leave room for drilling holes in our roof.
Any tips/pictures/anecdotes are appreciated!
