Wow, very cool. Looks pretty tight for room however, especially for 4 people! Amazing price on it. I'd like to see the next size up version. Durability of all of the components remains to be seen. Love that someone's doing this for under thirty grand!

By the time you're done with van purchase and 'deluxe' conversion you're probably closer to 60-70k in $CDN. Ouch.
I only realized recently that the VW convert is still out there in Euro market but crazy price tag. VW California Ocean and Beach. Some irony in the naming...

I have a green 2000 Chevy express 2500 that needs a water pump for sale for a fraction of that price - pm me for more info. Pretty much the best vehicle and a must have for any real windchaser on a budget.
