    The first clip is sad cause although it's a joke, I've seen people try it cause they are too stupid. Also does Brain remind anyone else of the Geologist (Brian Posehn) from The Big Bang Theory? Just the voice and way he talks.

    The welded patch is likely to rust again, at the weld spots. Can be mitigated by heating with a flame and slow cooling, followed by a coat of zinc rich paint.

    The purpose of the partition wall or cage is to protect the driver & passenger from flying objects in case of a front end collision. Get in a wreck, everything comes flying at the back of your head, possibly decapitating you. Same effect as a headache rack on a semi.

    I'm using a sprinter cargo van as a family van. Have you seen the cost of a sprinter passenger van? They are 3 times the amount as a cargo van. None of these vans are cheap. This van is fantastic for doing anything. I had plenty of room to put a half bath and a small kitchen with a fridge and microwave. No more restroom stops on long drives. The kids could care less about windows with the 32 in TV for their video games. Going to the kids sporting events. None of us have to use those nasty port-a-potties.

    Gotta love rust repair! "Hey, it's a tiny hole. We'll be done by lunch time." Two days later you have chased that rust hole with the welder half way to the other side of the car and you're looking for two more panels to completely replace because you have discovered more rust under paint. Good job on that patch panel though. Wasn't expecting it to be contoured to match the floor, but makes sense with how large it ended up being. Looks good!

    @RichRebuilds please note that this silicone stuff you used for caulking the vent was technically the total wrong stuff. At home in your bathroom the temperature differences summer to winter are not big. But parking the van in the summer sun and driving through winter temeratures requires a stuff that is designed for that and will not crack and leaking. The internet is full of camper van owners crying over leaks because they made it wrong. Do not make the same mistake Leena will have to regretting, please. The right stuff for that is Sikaflex®-252 : is suitable for dynamic loading, structural bonding, Product advantages: 1 part, Elastic, Can be painted, Tolerance compensation, High dynamic load, Vibration-retardant, Non-corrosive, High electrical resistance, Wide range of adhesion, Silicone free Greetings from Germany!

    Hate to say it after the fact but you should have sprayed as much closed cell foam for the exterior walls, roof and doors as possible. That insulation you are using doesn't have much of an R factor regardless of how they advertise it. Also the metal framing that the walls will connect to will cause thermal bridging and bypass your insulation. Insulation is going to be the limiting factor of how comfortable the rig is and how much fuel she uses.
