Structural Shop

Structural shop for what we used on both the exterior & interior (exterior windows + interior carpentry)


AMA Slider Windows- Open sideways halfway- SHOP NOW

We ordered these windows (2 side sliders & 2 solid rear) directly from VanWindowsDirect, who work closely with the AMA manufacturer. Packaged great upon arrival and look awesome on the van.  Sit flush with 17% tint.  Amazon sells them for sprinter van years 2007 and newer.  Ours is a 2005, so we ordered through VWD.

Sikaflex P2G (Window Adhesive)- SHOP NOW

The adhesive we used to bond the windows above to our van.  Super strong, easy to use, works well.


Rustoleum Protective Enamel- SHOP NOW 

Putting this in the structural section because it is what we used to protect the freshly cut/exposed metal of window frame after cutting hole for the window.  The exposed metal will be prone to rust more quickly without some sort of protection on it.


Tongue & Groove Boards (ceiling panels) – SHOP NOW

We used these tongue and groove wood boards for our ceiling.  Easily painted to any color of your choice.  Can get in various lengths.


2×2 Treated Pine- SHOP NOW

We made the framework for our bench, storage, cabinets, and bed out of this wood.  If metal framework is not in your budget, this wood works great.  It is sturdy and easily painted.  We used it in both of our van builds.


White Melamine Board (cabinet doors) – SHOP NOW

Melamine board works perfect for cabinet doors.  It wipes off easily, can be bought in various sizes to cut into your custom sizes, and provides a clean looking finish.


Vinyl Flooring – SHOP NOW

Either vinyl or laminate flooring works perfect for a van build.  It cleans very easily and provides a professional look for those on a budget (as opposed to solid wood floors).


White Bead Board Panel – SHOP NOW

4×8 bead board panels are one option to cover your walls.  It is very thin so will need a stronger support behind it (layer of plywood for instance).  Provides a bright, clean, inviting finish for your van walls.


White Shiplap – SHOP NOW

Another option to finish your walls.  Strong and sturdy with tongue and grooves to connect each shiplap panel to one another.
