I've been thinking of this ever since I got my Sprinter back in 2006. The sprinter was just a tad tall for parking garages, however, but it introduced me to the wonders of a diesel drivetrain. A fine van, right up until I got rearended , pushed up a steep embankment, and rolled over. It seemed like the Dream was dead at that point.
My life really took a turn for the crapper.

But now another vehicle is along and with it a company that converts them to accommodate 2-3 and bikes pretty easily. Seems pretty thrifty, too.
What are your guys thoughts on this?

The work stand in the rear door is a fantastic idea!

Welp, I think I will, as soon as the Recon folks start taking orders again. They're upgrading their production capacity DT being swamped with orders.
Time to wait it out.
They don't seem to even have a waiting list.

Looks sweet Ray!
Don't know enough about the Nissan vans to comment.
After two biking/camping weekends became washouts, and everything I owned got soaked, I too have been enviously eyeing these van conversions. :oops:

To avoid parking garage height encounters - this would be a second vehicle.
Best of luck, and please keep us posted.
