Hi all, just brought home a 2015 Transit Van, Mid-height, 148" WB with the 3.7L V6. It's a work truck, but will also be a daily family mover and last but not least, an RV.
The first project that really has me stumped is adding a second row of seats for the kids. Ideally these seats will fold flat for a bed, but I'm not convinced of the safety of the "sofa beds" I've seen so far. This is my most precious cargo, not a rolling disco lounge.
The safest option seems to be a second-row seat from a Transit/Sprinter planted to the floor, as these seats already have integrated seat belts. There are a few on Craigslist/eBay but most are the wall-to-wall size and I'd like to be able to walk front-to-back without hopping over seats.
Europe has hundreds of options for rock and roll beds and such, but all I can find stateside is a rock and roll frame for a microbus. Could be modified, but, again the safety question.
I look forward to seeing what you all have done with your rigs. I've got a lot of experience converting other vehicles, so I'll help where I can.
