Thats the one, they said it was coming to Mass if you did not buy it.  Looks like a nice FWC.  Did you get all that batter power?  Enjoy.

Yes, the battery is massive. 130lbs apparently. https://www.vmaxtank...ry-_p_165.html 

 Probably overkill for me but it's installed and I'll use it.

I also prefer to travel with bikes inside my Eagle. I mounted cargo track each side of the cabin floor and then ran an 18" deep pc of plywood between the two sides with fork mounts screwed into the ply. I can securely carry jerry cans, hi-lift jack, and two bikes all mounted to the ply. More people room with just one bike of course. Straps run to the cargo track moveable rings secure the bike side to side.

Champer,
I am picking up my shell next week and also have thought about mounting my bikes(expensive) inside the shell. I am trying to envision your setup. Is there any way you could snap a couple picks? Thank you.

I'd love to see a photo too! Sounds interesting.

Here is a pic where you can see the rails on each side and the plywood spanning between with about .5" gap underneath - enough to slip the end of the mat under. There is a midspan support also. Box holds 3 strapped in jerry cans of water or gas. There is a specific cargo track attachment that has a threaded post which I used to hold the ply as it sits on the track. I swapped out turnbuckle doors for aluminum so rings could fit there otherwise doors were fine. The other bike mount goes over where the hi-lift is attached. Lashing down loads helps keep everything stable on dirt roads.

Yeah, I was going to go for something like that. I have a fridge in the middle where your jerry can box is and I'm a bit worried about pedals scratching things up but I guess with some care it can be done.
