Default Inexpensive DIY starting point?

If I were thinking of a DIY, this might fit the bill, I like the shape, even though it would be harder work because of it.

Craigslist link:

E350 Aerocell SRW Service Cube Van

It's... hideous.

It may be a starting point, but as it sits it is very unattractive.

You have to imagine it with windows and some trim etc.

I see them around here and have noted the Unicell branding. Looks like it is the same company; Unicell / Aerocell.

The ones with flat sides might be a little easier to build on...

Van bodies, fiberglass van bodies

If he is trying to attract the DIY camper market, it would help greatly if he posted photos of the inside. Is it empty? Is full of bolted in racks? Flooring?

It is listed as "service van", but inside pix would be good, as many of the service vanned are fully racked and sold that way around here. The RV possibility was just my idea.

Not really all that different than a Roadtrek 200 if you paint it up and add some windows and a door.

Hm....to me it looks a bit like a Clorox bottle on wheels. If you could add windows, etc. and keep the streamlined look, with a simple, streamlined interior to match, it could be quite wonderful. Any dimensions?
