    Why does the bike need to be inside?

    There is a KTM 350 on the back hauler too.

    I don't know, but three axles will limit how fast you can drive and what lanes you can drive in on the freeway.
    Makes the bridge tolls higher too. :tongue

    The rear of the 2wd E350 is at just 31" ... makes it easy to jump right in/out.

    How much can you haul in the back of an E350 van?

    Well ... imagine 5 guys chipping in for gas ... :thumbup

    The partition is just taking shape in our van this week. We still need to enclose the ends. We can already see improvements to make: maybe add a hinged access hatch on the end there, shelves, drawers, IDK. I'm just trying to avoid the OSB plywood look. I'm not fond of carpet either. Everything is simply bolted in, so we can easily unbolt it and make modifications. The partition has created a significant reduction in the interior noise. Before there was a bad pulsing effect that was soooper annoying.

    Lotta space back here with the back seat out. It takes two people to get the seat out. It's on quick release mounts and easy to do, but just too HEAVY and awkward for one person.

    backseat3.jpg

    Looks kinda like something from IKEA. :laughing

    I don't have a table saw, so we're using shelf board material to maintain the long straight edges. We'll see how long particle board lasts as a partition. :thinking

    The vertical boards are 24" X 8' cut down to size. The horizontal is 12" X 6'. Then we used 1-1/2" X 2-1/2" slotted angle. It's all available at Home Depot.

    5/16" coach bolts fit perfectly in the slotted angle. Nylock nuts and fender washers on the opposite side.

    So far, it's like tinkering with an Erector set.

    These T-nuts from OSH are kinda cool and low-profile. If they're over torqued they'll crush the particle board.

    A long time ago we had a 1988 F350 Extended Van, we had a 2X12 across the back of the first row of seats tied the bikes in straight against the seat back.

    By just having a board across the seat the other seats could still be used to haul people when needed.

    We could fit 3 XR 250's and put one XR100 in with all of our gear, gas, water and supplies for a week or more. We would also haul a Zieman trailer with two jet ski's on it.

    If we were only going jet skiing we would place the jet ski's both inside and carry them with the seating capacity of 5.

    The bikes at that time allowed a white Igloo 100 ice chest to be placed across the back. This allowed ice and food to be easily placed into the ice chest.


    Gas mileage was about 10 MPG but it was worth it. That setup with little kids is a little harder though. :biggrin


    I sure do love a camper though!

    Hey great idea. :thumbup

    Ya nuthin' better than a camper with full amenities. Just takes so much time to clean, flush, scrub, dump, fix. Yes I'm lazy. :redface
