Movin on up

I have thought about buying one of these vehicles myself. Just curious, how tall is the roof? Unless your really short, I would have thought you couldn't stand up straight in this thing. Either way, congrats and it's a good looking vehicle. I especially like the white color.

To answer your question, I have actually done searches on craigslist for these things and there found a bunch of different things people did to their van. Obviously shelves on the each side are a common thing to hold more product and will also save your back. Also, somebody correct me if I am wrong but I feel like placing the heavier drinks in the middle makes more sense where the van can support more weight and is better for the chassis.

The medium roof transit is about maybe 72 or 73" from floor to ceiling, but I added a plywood floor and with shoes on I easily touch the ceiling with my head (I am slightly above 6'0").  I actually have to turn my head slightly in order to stand straight up with my plywood floor.  So anyone under 5'10" would probably have zero issues (except for the supports that span across the roof every few feet) with headroom.  And yes, being above 6'0" will mean that you have to slouch a bit to avoid the roof, but I really don't have to move too much to reach everything inside so it's a non-issue.  I think the tall version gives you an extra 8 inches or something along those lines.  It looks like Anacapa has the tall roof model so, unless he's over 6'7", I would imagine he can stand up perfectly fine and probably even jump in it without hitting the roof.

I'll try to take some pictures for you tomorrow.  I just haven't gotten inside my truck because it's been too cold!  Hopefully the battery didn't die on me.

My van is the middle roof, so it has around 72" of clearance inside, other than the beams on the roof. The low roof version is like a normal cargo van. I did get into one of those to see how much room I would have, and I was hunched over pretty good. If I put a slight bend in my knees or slightly tilt my head, I can wall freely in my van. 

I've read through a few old pays and looked at some pictures. I just like to see a bunch of different setups and grab the things I like.

No rush. I have a temporary setup. I don't really want to be out vending right now, let alone building shelves lol.

Those would be nice. Maybe in a few years lol.
