About the build
The ModVans CV1 is based on the Ford Transit with the McPherson Strut front end that makes it drive like an SUV rather than a truck. The van is built with an electric pop-top rather than a high top, to reduce wind drag and provide a bed above. It's painted match the body. A shore power hookup is provided.
Seats are leather. The passenger seat swivels and the 3-seat rear bench can be positioned front-facing (transport mode) or sideways (camp mode). Pop-top and lower beds are 6' x 4' and sleep 4 adults. The lower platform bed cushions can be stacked to leave cargo space in the rear.
A house battery powers 2000 Watt inverter, electric top, 12v compressor fridge, hot water heater, and LED lights. A propane heater warms the cabin. All of the cabinetry is modular, made of lightweight aluminum, and can be removed to use the van in cargo mode.
