All of the original pirate ship wooden interior from the previous "Jolly Roger" version were brought back to life by applying many coats of linseed oil. The wood on the captain chairs was reconditioned and then covered in blue velvet. The back love seat was covered in tuck 'n roll blue velvet and the carpet was replaced with blue cut-pile carpet. The dash received wooden treatments and the tilt steering column was painted to resemble wood and capped with a smaller 14-inch wooden steering wheel. An all-walnut headliner was installed to obtain that pirate ship decor. A color TV was mounted in the cabinet so Don could watch his old I Love Lucy and Honeymooners reruns. A one-off Dakota Digital gauge cluster was built and installed in the original location, along with a Dakota Digital clock and temperature gauge that were mounted in the overhead console. Air conditioning was installed to make the captain and first mate's cabin comfortable during the hot summer days. Many LED lights were installed in the ceiling to show off the interior décor. Loud and Clear, in Kansas City, installed the Jensen head unit with a seven-inch flipdown DVD touch screen. An MTX 300-watt mono amp and a MTX Thunder 500-watt amp powers a 12-inch subwoofer to provide cinema-like audio.
Don and Becky took the new "Pirates of the Caravan" to the Van Nationals and World of Wheels and won Best of Show and People's Choice. Without question, this van is a rolling tribute to the new era in van customizing.
