THE HEMINGWAY

159" DODGE PROMASTER

BUILDING WITH BAMBOO

Bamboo is our favorite material to work with for cabinetry and drawer faces. It's a strong natural material, eco-friendly, and it looks amazing! In this van conversion we wanted to make the bamboo star of the show so we made the walls and roof a solid light grey to make the bamboo 

grain really pop.

All of our drawer boxes are made with dovetail joints, which is both durable and aesthetic. 

SEATING AREA

Table folds up and locks into place, strong enough for a two-person dinner or a work session on the laptop.

Driver seat swivels into place with a foot

platform for two. Passenger seat also swivels.

OFF-GRID POWER

With 300 watts of solar powering a 240 Ah lithium battery, this system keeps things running and all your gear charged when off the grid. We use the highest quality solar panels and lithium batteries on the market for reliable and efficient performance.

The power system is user-friendly and easy to monitor with a pre-installed tablet. This connects directly to the battery for monitoring power consumption, capacity, and other important information. The remote on the right is for vent fan control both in the front and back cabin area.

BACK STORAGE

With a height of 35", this area has enough space to store packs, bikes, crash pads, foldable kayaks, and other large items. The white box in the photo is our our favorite on-demand water heater because it vents out the floor and not through the van's walls. The unit provides plenty of hot water for the sink and the shower off the back door.
