client: nelly & yuri
2018 dodge promaster 2500
Nelly and Yuri came to us ready to upgrade their outdoor experience. Well-versed in back country and tent camping, they were both ready to ditch their tents for something more comfortable. From the very beginning, they knew they wanted a reliable vehicle with standing room, and when they notified us OM had been purchased, we picked it up locally and went to work.
OM was a unique design as our clients wanted to maximize interior space to allow for cooking inside through the harsh Buffalo, NY winters. We decided to trade in our usual exterior slide-out table for an interior one, that neatly stowed under the bed when not in use. Directly underneath, we put a dual-zone cooler on slide-out rails to allow for more space flexibility.
The extra head-room allowed us to bump the kitchenette height up to 36” and build dual hatch cabinets along the driver’s side wall. The bed platform was also raised to 30” for a comfortable sitting height, creating ample storage below.
We finished the van off with facing bench seats (one of which stored a portable toilet), a subway tile backsplash and ambient lighting around the ceiling and beneath the cabinets to illuminate the kitchen space.
