Pretty slow week last week……I spent some time doing a trade with a friend. She gave me a 1999 Toyota Sienna that is in great shape and in return I am converting her 2006 Dodge Sprinter from a passenger van into a camper van. We did the demo of all the walls,floor, ceiling and A/C unit….Took about 4.5 hours. We valued the car at $1,500 and I am working for $25 an hour. We will use some of my finds to do the cabinets etc……Photos to follow.
