Hi, I bought a used 15 Chevy Express 2500 passenger van a few months ago. This is my 2nd van ever, the 1st being a 2003 Savanna. I sold it after I got hurt racing moto in Canada, thinking I wouldn't ride again. But I still do and the the truck I traded the van in on was becoming a clapper so back to the van life. I bought the passenger version because I wanted the climate control in the rear plus some extra windows. Its a short version so I am giving up interior space but gaining a ton better maneuverability. But I didn't think that giving up 20 or so inches would make that big a difference.

So while I'm always looking to make new friends, my primary purpose here is to hopefully find some good solid ideas (and how tos) to fix up the interior of the van. I paid someone to do the 1st van, I don't have that luxury this time around. But I also don't have the time and money to do a bunch of trial and error stuff. I'm great with tools and motorcycles but when it comes to creating and building the stuff I need, well, I need some help.

I have to admit, I'm surprised at how many van pages are out there, here, Instagram, etc. Its amazing.

Thanks. But as I continue to look around, it seems this is mostly for older vans. Is this correct?

No Honda65, this site has all kinds of vans although the bulk of them are older ones since that is what most of us brought with us to Vanning.com. There are several "newer" vans in the vanning community although not many of the new euro style vans yet. By the way, Welcome.

Welcome from Florida.
A lot of us do have older or vintage vans but
I'm sure you can find some cool ideas you could adapt to any van.

welcome. a good plenty of us have older models, but the concept of building out the interior applies to old and new! browse the pages for ideas.

There are mostly show vans and street vans here. Not a lot of camping vans, but there are a few.
So how many ideas you find here will depend on your plans for the van.
If you plan on camping, travel or multi-use (moto haulin') then there is a world of advice on line. The later models are actually much better suited for those types of conversion.
