    Yowza,

    Got wind of your transit build from transitusa forum.

    What design package are you using to simulate your transit build out?

      Hey David,
      I try to take advantage of CAD sharing platforms such as GrabCad.com to find models that were drawned by others. Unfortunatly, for now, there is no 2015+ North American Ford Transit CAD model out there. So I used this Sprinter model, then i just modified the cargo area to reflect the Transit high-roof extended length, width and height (dimensions here). For simplicity sake, i did not modeled the walls curvature so it is not 100% accurate but good enough for planning the conversion.

      The visualization plugin used on this page is Autodesk360.com. Almost any CAD format can be uploaded and displayed on any web browser (no plugin required), sweet!

      Are you planning on a conversion yourself?

      cheers,
      Antoine

    Hello Antoine,

    Great web site. I’ll be doing a van conversion in early 2017 in order to start full-timing later in the year. We decided to purchase a 2017 Transit cutaway with a fiberglass Aerocell Transit body installed by Unicell. We’ll be picking it up from Unicell’s manufacturing facility in Buffalo, NY in January and driving it back to Portland, OR where we live. Not the best time for a road trip, but what can you do? 🙂

    Like David, I’m wondering what CAD program you used to edit your Sprinter model? I understand where you got the model in the first place, but what software are you using to edit it – AutoCAD or???

    Anyhow, mainly wanted to stop by and say hello and let you know I appreciate all the work you’ve put into the build documentation here. I plan on doing something similar. Right now our web site is just a placeholder, but we hope to have it up and running in November.

    Take care,
    Pete

      Pete,

      my software licence might be expired, let me first check before going out loud…

      Thanks for the compliments, we’re doing our best with the conversion and with the website!

      I would love to hear more about your full-time trip! Will you guys work from the road? What places are you gonna hit? Anyhow, we’ll check for updates on your website (there is no option to subscribe yet).

      Good luck with everything!
      Cheers 🙂
