World Famous Octane Detailing Mobile Van: Ford Transit Connect
I put a lot of thought into trying to make everything fit into the Octane Detailing Transit Connect. I thought there would be more than enough room, but turns out things were pretty tight.
There are two water systems on board: a traditional electric pressure washer with a 25 gallon tank, and a small 2.5 gallon tank for rinseless wash with an electric pump powered by a motorcycle battery. I can easily switch the 100 ft. hose between the two.
The Honda generator provides on-board power, which can be easily disconnected and connected to a customer’s home if power is available. Also on-board is an air compressor with 50 ft retractable hose.
There’s both a steamer and an extractor, so I can tackle any interior job. And of course there’s a couple of 10×10 canopies, lights and a 10×20 containment mat should I need to catch my water, which can be pumped out and stored in buckets and/or the extractor.
Finally, you will notice Rupes and Flex polishers mounted behind the sliding door on the driver’s side along with a couple of extension chords. From here I can also access all my various hoses and towels. The shelving unit holds towels, brushes, polishing pads, sanding pads, a 3-inch polisher and all sorts of other miscellaneous items.
We will see how it all works out over time and what modifications and changes I’ll make as I live with it for a while, but I think it’s going to do the job just fine.
