Doblo maxi build

So I thought Iíd start my build on here to show my progress and also ask for help if I find anything you guys might be able to help with.

Iíve always liked the newer shape doblos (2010-) and recently bought one as a day / works van. I work in the outdoors industry but I also travel a lot so didnít want anything bigger really.

I have a 1.3mjet with about 100k on the clock. Roughly done about 1500miles and I really rate it. A lot better on fuel then I had read from what owners have said. Getting around 670miles to a tank(unloaded) driving fairly slowly but mostly on motorways.

Plans for the van...
Few cosmetic changes
Interior update
Bed in the back.

Work done so far...

Re: Doblo maxi build

Van update *

Been quite busy with work recently so not had much time to do much on the van. Few bits and bobs done.

Rear load area- The van style doblos have a fake floor just behind the front seats which is removed on the combo versions. Itís actually quite a bit of space so my plan here was to remove the floor and install a flip floor so I can use this space for storage or a leisure battery .

But cleaned up nicely!


Insulation- On my last van build (Renault master) I went for a few different layers. If Iím honest, Iím not going to be spending days on days in the van during the colder months so on reflection I went with a product called E-Low. Foil closed core type which was both lightweight and only 5mm thick so didnít take up to much space. Floor, sealing and wheel arches done
