We couldn't find any tailor-made seat covers since it's so new.  We decided to buy cheap "fits all" covers until we could get tailor-made seat covers.  But if they look OK, we may just keep using the "fits all" covers and replacing them as needed rather than investing in tailor-made covers and then needing to clean them.

 

We're planning to do a conversion for camping, but nothing fancy.  Minimalist.  We generally pull a small trailer, and the NV will allow us to go places where even the small trailer won't go.  Plus, it'll be our emergency evacuation vehicle in case of impending natural diasaster.  In 'a previous life' we traveled in a Westfalia.  We didn't even use most of its amenities.

Welcome to the site!  

 

Be sure your seat covers allow for the seat airbag to deploy.  Last thing you want in an accident is your airbag to not go off correctly!  Most NV seat covers that are made for our vans have a slit or special pocket designed just for the airbag.

Welcome.

Big difference between your NV and Westy. I would start every trip wondering what could go wrong with our Westy on the trip. Usually nothing major, but...You won’t have any worries with your NV.

After 5+ years of use, the cloth seats have stood up well. No covers.

Post photos of your build as it progresses.

I put some Scotchgard (automotive version) on my cloth seats when I bought the van 13 months ago.  Even with 5 kids, the seats still look like new.  I just wish I had taken the time to put some on the floor mats, too.  I think it's supposed to be reapplied every year or so.

There are a couple of posts about our 'conversion' (not so much) at http://oddstray.com

 

Early yet, but we're getting there.

Enjoyed reading your blog.

Abe, take a look at the shelving photos with the bungee cords. This is similar to your plans.
