Sent my Metris to Peace Vans for conversion. No longer need the second (2 + 1) and third row seats. Taken out when the Metris had 750 miles on it. Northern California area. Not interested in shipping. Make offer or tell me a good story, and I'll give them to you.

Hi Guy!
Just saw your post last night! Had to check out Peace Vans to see what’s up, looks like an awesome place to get your van hooked up! Definitely need to throw it on the board when it’s done!
So my story is I bought a 2021 Cargo 135” and I’m planning to start a Contractors business using the van a work horse but also as a little family wagon to cruise to the desert and beach. Van comes in September and I still need a bench for the kids otherwise they’ll be rolling on beans bags. I live in Orange County but would be willing to drive up, seats look like they’re in great condition! If you like contact me via email and I can make an offer 👍
Thanks!

Peace Vans is the best. I am an ambassador for them. I own two Metrises. One came converted by Peace Vans via MB of Seattle. The other I bought from Autobahn Motors and had it trailored to Peace Vans for a conversion.

The best thing about Peace Vans. is that the work doesn't void the warranty since it's an official upfitter.

Seats are new. No one has even sat in the third row. Do you need second and third row? Another guy in this thread really just wanted second row.

What's your offer?

Thanks!

Guy

How neat! Keep your warranty is great. All the upfitfers around here have mainly been just commercial Do you have any of your Metri posted? I just need one row, preferably the second row split.
I can offer $300 for one row, I’m not certain how far north you are and I’m just recently put a search on for for these seats.
Thanks!

Actually, installing a poptop whether you are an upfitter or not doesn't void the warranty. The main advantage (that people should consider if they don't own a van yet) of an official upfitter offering a package that can be sold by the dealer is that you can include the upfitting price in any financing. You may also get additional warranty coverage on the parts involved in the upfitting. Driverge is doing the Getaway package you can purchase at the dealer. This is not a comment on Peace Vans. They assemble a good product. Most everything is off the shelf. I would have purchased from them if they were doing tops only, but the last I spoke with Harley they really only wanted to do full packages. I don't blame them. Also, WA tax is serious.

My wife was giving me a hard time for wanting two Metris with poptops. I'm thrilled to know someone else is blazing the trail for me. :cool:

I'll have a 2nd (two seater) and third row available in late summer. Also in Northern California (Petaluma). DM if you don't get Guys and want either.

Honestly don't know if adding just the pop top voids the warranty, but Peace Vans is doing way more than just that to mine. It involves seats, electrical, etc.

In my case, my wife is the one of the family members who wants to ensure multiple Metrises! :)

PS, haven't posted any pictures. I didn't know this forum existed until a few days ago! :)

Even better! :)

Congrats on the full conversion.

If you are giving up the seats you may want to also offer the rails since you wont need those either. Someone with a Cargo van willing to do the work to install them and flooring to match could benefit. They are sold on ebay if you want to check the going rates. A few conversion companies regularly offer them as take-outs. I'm assuming PV doesn't care if you remove them yourself. No idea of they repurpose them. They are easy to remove.

Can you use the third row instead of the second?

For anyone in British Columbia, who is looking for a 2+1 second row and/or a 3 seater third row plus rails, I will have some available in late July. Asking for $200 for the second row, $100 for the third row, and $100 for the rails. All prices in Canadian dollars. The seats are leatherette and are all in great shape, having had very little use. I can sent pics to anyone interested.
