How do you secure your portable? Do you use the same portable for high rises? That's what I plan to do.
The whole empty vans floor has durabak, we then installed the TM, waste tank and vac reel. The mats were put in next, we even fit them around and under the bolted in hose reel. The mats are easy to pop out and great to pull out and throw on the ground to work on something next to the van. Very soft and cushiony.How do you pull the matts underneath of the bolted equipment? That must be challenging.
hmm nice, so one strap tied to the ceiling, one to the floor and one to the partition, and all of this holding the machine.Its strapped down. To the roof, a couple large loops bolted into floor and the partition.
Make sure you use the heavy duty straps. It won't move using regular ones but if you got rear ended don't want it moving.
I use it as a portable in apartments as well. Unhook 3 straps and disconnect two hoses and you can pull it out.
Thanks buddy, I will consider the options.@Fedri bed rug is great for vibration dampening and noise reduction, pond liner also works.
If your not worried about vibration or sound issues then rhino line the whole floor and up the sides about 1ft. Its around $1k to have a shop do it. Bed rug is made to fit your specific model, outdoor carpet on top and rubber backing... it comes cut to fit and is corrugated on the back to match your van floor
Its about $250. We have it in our express van and nv3500. After 3yrs or so when it gets old its really easy to just replace it, amazon has them
Kinda what i did. But i didnt screw it down. I used tongue & groove and glued joints together with PL. But i do have the old seat bolts i used to hold ply from moving around. Just the rear 2 bolts were good enough. I cant stand van ribs. They destroy my knees and cant get anything to stand flat on them. Good idea of removing then setting mat on top. That will help keep floor insulated.In order to add integrity and sound deadening to our van floors, we follow the same procedure for the last 5 vans we have had.
Remove the rubber van floor covering with insulation on the back. Lay it to the side. Purchase a roll of 40# roofing felt to create a pattern for the 3/4" marine or pressure treated plywood. Lay the pattern on the floor after cutting the plywood. Tape the joints and screw the plywood down with SS screws after pre-drilling pilot hole, screws long enough to penetrate the floor ribs but nothing else. Tape the joints with Gorilla tape. Reinstall the original rubber van floor covering and proceed to install truckmount equipment.
ohh you are a Canadian nice, so its about 2-3 an hour, I also did a calculation using the propane tank and it was the same amount. I get my propane from costco for cheap, they fill my barbecue size tank for 9 bucks that I use for my little giant heater.Like 9 hours on a tank roughly. 25-30$ Canadian to fill it up.
