This guide is for installing the entire Adventure Wagon Interior kit in a 2015-present Transit high-roof, Extended van.

Any additional written build notes below will be the most up-to-date instructions and the video should be used as a baseline.

Installation can be done over four to six days depending on experience. It helps to have two people for A-frame bracing, track and panel installation.

The heart of our Interior system is our A-Frame wall bracers and ceiling bracers. We have modified how the wall bracers are installed, please see our additional notes:

  • We are no longer using the magnets to align the wall bracers, instead we use set screws included with your kit.
  • If you've used self tapping set set screws to temporarily hold the wall track in place, please remove once the track is fastened to ensure the L track lays flat against the wall bracer
  • Do not install your upper wall Thinsulate insulation until after your wiring chase is installed to avoid leaving shavings in the insulation
