Thanks for the info, I have a request in to Kermit through Earl to add this to my E-450 2351 being built now.  They are considering it and I'm just waiting for the answer.

Quieteride Solutions based in CA. is the best resource....there web site specifically outlines the entire kit for the E-450 or you can buy separate pieces if your should desire.   I ordered everything from the web from the company's I mentioned, their sites are great and explain/describe everything.  I honestly discarded all of the packaging slips order sheets so can not give you exact numbers but the sites have that info.  I would have QuieteSolutions drop ship right to PC if I was you.  I am sure Kermit has resources as well that he uses.  Better insulation is worth every cent, I would have PC put extra sound proofing in the front cap as well, right now they just run the ceiling insulation down the front and that is not enough at all.

From the forum many of you have TOAD (sorry if this is in reference to more than a car/SUV) and some have bicycles/scooter/motorcyles that you carry/trailer behind the PC.

While looking for lighter options for transportation with my PC and how to move that option, I wondered if a new/newer poll might be helpful.

Thank you for your comments,

John

ragoodsp,
Thank you for your research and pursuit of improving the soundproofing/insulation of the cab.

Do you have the references to the various parts used, I believe that I would like to pursue a similar effort, possibly with installation by PC in the build out of my new MH.

Thanks,

John

I would agree 150% Ron D.  Strong, light weight chassis with a world class engine that used correctly is a good combo but do not ask it to do more than it is capable of doing safely....Ron G.

Having once had (very short time) a Monica Covina (Sprinter based) I never even considered for a moment towing my Jeep Liberty CRD, 4500 lbs.  While that 3.0L is a work horse the Sprinter chassis IMO is close to it max. when fully loaded.  I would never pull a toad weighing over 2800 lbs behind a Sprinter, just not safe.  
I agree with you.  I don't endorse towing a Wrangler with a PC-Sprinter.  Actually I don't endorse a PC-Sprinter towing any vehicle for it seems over the edge.  An exception might be a Smart car or other similarly weighted vehicle.

Just sharing with you all what that PC-Sprinter owner shared with me.

That is a tough question to be honest Pax.  The insulation in the doors really quiets the noise coming from passing cars/trucks.  Where I see the biggest improvement is when the vehicle down shifts you do not hear that real roar, it is deadened considerably.  I guess I would say the floor insulation and the doghouse work would be where I would start.   There is a lot of heat that comes up thru that uninsulated floor and of course noise.   The worse aspect is fighting the dog house, I really took time to make sure the gasket made up to the floor correctly and it is a pain because you can not see anything in behind so  must feel your way.  The company's I ordered the kits from were super and the orders came very fast.  Having the pre cut carpet from PC ($61.00) made life very easy, I would not have tried to custom cut carpet, I have tried before and it is and art that I do not have.  While it is a PIA to do everything I can now say there is nothing else I can possibly do to make the cab area any quieter.   I do think I will tackle the front cap  wing areas because I know there is next to zero insulation in those areas and a lot of wind noise comes from them.  Will keep you posted.
On another note,  I found a nice little mouse nest built right in between the "V" of the engine way back under the doghouse.  I do not know why it never ignited!  You all might want to check for such a situation if you live in and area that is prone to field mice!  Thanks, Ron G.

Sounds like a great time, Ron and Irene.  PC is lucky to have owner-fans like you.  Not only do you spread good words about their product, but to open up your rig to hundreds of visitors over a weekend is really something!  Glad all went well and you had such fun.  Smile
