This is my ever changing 71 VW hi-roof that has been lowered 7" and still has full travel and rides really nice at a top speed of 55.

Picked this up a couple weeks ago. Double limo'd the windows, and put in a Pioneer something or other. Put in a van rug (great product), pulled the first two rows of seats out and put in a stainless steel table that I can swivel 90 degrees out of the way when I want to. Next up is a triple receiver hitch and custom hitch hauler, roof rack, lights, etc.

Can the top come off that table easily if you ever need to fit something bigger in the van?

Yup, and the upright unscrews out of a flange welded to the floor.

I don’t understand why you didn’t pull the back two rows of seats instead so you could load things into the back. Like a couple motorcycles.
Blocking off the back of a van never made sense to me.

Not bad, but they are going to regret putting that Westy body on top when they hook it on a low hanging tree power line or a bridge.

And I cringed when they sawed the WV apart. Sacrilege!!!

I cringed too. And having that on top makes it look quite weird, especially after they mentioned in the beginning their color choice because they didn't want to look like hippies, just normal people.

Tom S...

I used to have a cargo van E150. I wanted the passenger version for the AC all the way to the back, insulation, speakers, power sources, and basic 'finish' that the passenger offers. I plan on making a hitch mount and pulling a trailer for the bikes, gas cans, fire wood, coolers, etc. and keeping the front of the van as a chill spot and a comfy place to sleep and camp out of. Been down the other road before, just wanted to do something different this time.
