I have been stalling for 2 days to take the next steps and doing my van so obviously there’s some hesitation which I’m acknowledging here by asking a question(s) to you beautiful people.
I love the character of my GMC Savana it has wood trim and LED lights some of the things don’t work back here but it’s still pretty.
What I don’t like, is the fact that the decorative side paneling especially in the rear of the van runs out about 6-7 in from the side of the van… On each side… Which amounts to quite a bit of square inches, cubic inches, it’s a lot of f****** space!
I don’t know anything about the electrical system or the wiring. I really just want to build a bed back here so I’m not sleeping on a mattress on the floor.
I also want to remove the carpet and put even cheap wood or vinyl won’t absorb moisture and smells like his old carpet does.
And the fact what I’m guessing is the factory insulation was not intended for living in. It gets quite hot during the day and quite cold in the evenings. Would it behoove me to at least stuff the doors with fiberglass to add some extra insulation and then put the original panels back on?
I do love the sliding screens which help held in my reflectix while still allowing me to use the bottom slide thing on the windows for ventilation.
I doubt that any of these pseudo questions will be able to be answered via a forum thread. But I thought I’d try?
So why would be stripping this be not the best idea?
