Sprinter 4×4 Camper Van Build: Day 13.

Last night, Dan actually drilled a solar pre-wire hole in hopes that we could cross it off the list and thus be able to re-install the headliner today. But after a late day of installing windows, it wasn’t the best choice because today we realized that we skipped a couple steps. We forgot to install a rubber grommet to prevent wire chaffing and also forgot to paint the exposed metal. Doh. No worries. It all got done today. For the project we bought this solar panel cable entry cover.

Sprinter 4×4 Camper Van Build: Day 6.

Good morning! We didn’t sleep the best last night. Tossed and turned a bit over our crinkle on the other side of the van. We were a bit hesitant to go outside just in case any other warping happened but thankfully nothing else happened while we slept. Dan even thought it might have looked a little better today. We started off day 6 of our build by ordering some windows for the van. We decided to forgo the more used CR Lawrence windows for the Artic Tern ones from Tern Overland.

Sprinter 4×4 Camper Van Build: Day 3.

While Dan and I are busy with the van build, the girls are creating daily checklists for themselves to make sure all their schooling gets completed. Language arts, math, ancient history, art and exercise. Those are their current five subjects. So when we mentioned to the girls that we needed to run to Home Depot in the morning, they quickly put their shoes on and mentioned something about getting to check exercise off their lists. Once we go to the store, the exercise comment made much more sense to me. Sorry contractor dudes in the store, running on polished concrete floors was their PE class today.
