ProMaster DIY Camper Van Conversion -- References and Suppliers

This page will provide links and references for those interested in building a camper van conversion based on the RAM ProMaster (or other vans).

I'm just adding to this as I go, so its incomplete, but still might be useful.

If you know of any good references I missed, please let me know.

Important Update

The material on these pages describing our camper van conversion has been moved to our new new site dedicated to efficient RVs and camper vans.

The new site covers all the material here and adds a lot of new material on other camper van conversions, camper van design and build, resources for people converting vans, other efficient camping vehicles, new ideas in efficient RVs and camper van travel hints.

The new site is here...

I'm leaving these pages here as you may have bookmarked them and the Comments section has some good suggestions, but I suggest that you go to the new site -- I won't be updating this material anymore.

Thanks to all the people who read these pages and especially to the people who left comments and suggestions! Feedback on the new site is very much appreciated.
