City Express Possibilities Are Endless



A cargo van like the City Express is a blank canvass just waiting to be configured to suit your needs and we’re here to toss around a few ideas, you could even find the source for that elusive part you’re looking for.


Maybe the Chevy City Express will be used to haul around the tools of your trade. That’s going to require a lot of shelving or storage space of some kind and what can’t be built will need to be purchased.

Plumbing is the name of the game?



Ranger Design has shelving created with organization and ergonomics in mind. Made to fit perfectly inside the Express is an aluminium contoured bin unit with five racks filled, all filled with individual bins so that every bolt and screw will have their own storage space. It only has a width of 36 inches leaving plenty of walkway space.

Need a good rack for miles of wiring?




MasterRack has a SmartSpace wall mounted wire spool rack. There’s four easily removable bars to keep your wiring and cables organized and untangled.

The City Express doesn’t have to be used for work only, it can be modified for long getaways and solar panels mounted onto the roof will allow owners to take extended camping trips without the need for an electrical hook up.



Wholesale Solar
has a wide selection of solar panels from a variety of brands and they have a few low watt options to fit on the City Express’ roof.

What do you have planned for your City Express?

Solar panels are a great option for campers but that's only if you know how to do the electricals yourself and wire everything. There are options out there for those who are not as Diy inclined like me.

not true.

if your not a hands-on type of person with features like this then you pay someone, just like you would with everything else you can't do yourself.

but given the types you find on forums, someone will likely post up a DIY here.

It looks like the roof can fit more than one of those solar panels. If the express was a hybrid, would the panels provide enough energy to charge the battery? But this is just hypothetical.

2 panels would cover your camping electric use.

If it can be a system sophisticated enough that it's motorized and allows for multiple panels that fold in together then that will be a great idea. A costlier investment but of course the long term gain can easily justify the increase in initial cost.
