The new conversion will be one of the European styled vans currently available on the American market. The following concept drawings are based on the 2015 Ford Transit, but can easily be adapted to the Ram ProMaster or the MB Sprinter.
The latest of my designs for the New Ford transit van. Most details have been resolved, only issue that remains is a full-size bathroom versus more space and storage opportunities. Download the current CAD design in .dwg.
While very satisfied with the looks of the bed, its deficiencies plus the shortcomings of the rear storage, makes me think of another design. This is a process I follow, which in the end hopefully leads to an optimal design that both fits the van and satisfies my needs. Read more in this article.
My latest sketch is based on a rear kitchen, exploring some new ideas for a murphy bed & desk combination. More details can be found in this article.
Started with some innovative pictures of a raised double bed, that created a lot of storage space.
To create more living/work space, while preserving some of the storage area, this incorporates a murphy bed that transforms into a desk during the day hours.
To save money on the purchase price of the cargo van, the short version would lose the extra storage.
As I’m still in the planning stage, your comments or ideas are appreciated.
More concept drawings to follow.
