Sing Core and James Abke Turn Mercedes Van into a Portable Home
James Abke is a professional of the highest caliber who is also an avid traveller. He needed the best accomodations for his extended trips in his Mercedes van. Because of his unique needs he sought out a unique company who could do something which, in most industries, is normally called “mission impossible.”
James chose Sing Core because of our proven track record of providing the most unique products that are designed to perform under the most extreme conditions. Mr. Abke needed materials to build his special luggage rack and bed in the back of his Mercedes that would allow him to eat, sleep, and work in his van.
“The panels are awesome…I have a feeling they will last a lifetime.”

This job required a material that would be extremely strong, rigid, with virtually no flex, yet light weight. James Abke knew this was something almost no one could do. That is why he approached Sing Core, Inc.
The Force Behind Sing Core
Under the supervision of Master Inventor, Sing Core Founder, Peter Sing, we got right to the task, designing this system for maximum performance and lighter weight. Using our patented and patent pending Professional Sing Panels. Sing Core is the best product on the market for these types of applications, because our core is stronger, tested independently in UW labs to be able to withstand 660 PSI of force, up to 90% lighter in weight than solid wood, more versatile, and more visually appealing than any other product on the market.
Because Mr. Abke required only a 1” thickness on his panels, he could not use just any material. He needed the strongest, lightest weight material he could possibly get ahold of. These panels had to be stronger than steel to endure the punishment he had planned for his Mercedes van conversion. This configuration required that the system be able to hold up several hundred pounds of weight without showing any signs of stress. These panels also offer much more insulation and sound blocking capabilities than solid wood or hollow core panels, thanks to Sing Core patented and patent pending technologies.
See how small these panels fold up! They are barely noticeable once folded for storage, and they are completely out of the way, thanks to James Abke’s implementation. This design allowed him to fold down the panels so he could use them as storage or else move them to the side and use the full space in the back of the van for cargo. No one else can do this.
Multi Purpose Design
James Abke was driving across the country in his van when he got the idea to do the unthinkable. Because of his unique need for a system that would allow him to work, sleep, as well as, store luggage in his van he designed a system that would be able to accommodate all three.
“I worked with several Singcore agents to find a solution and came up with a panel that I was able to coat with a truck bed liner (Rhino-Liner) in order to make the panels nonskid and very durable.”
The icing on the cake was that Mr. Abke’s design was able even able to accommodate a bed. Because of the ultra high strength, lightweight, warp free quality of Sing Core, James Abke was enabled to design a system that could easily accommodate two people, 500 pounds with no difficulty at all, without any compromise at all to the integrity the structure. Having a bed in his van allowed him to sleep on location, anywhere.
This was the perfect application for our products.
“It was imperative to me to have light weight panels strong enough to hold two people (for camping mode) or heavy equipment (in work mode) and be thin enough to be able to be stored inside a rather compact cargo van when they were not in use.”
James Abke’s design was simply one of the ways we can do this. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. We can even make drawers or other additions that can give you better storage options than you ever imagined. For this sort of application that requires such precision, high strength, light weight, and warp free character. Sing Core is the only solution for this type of situation.
We do not make SIP panels. SIP panels will bend, break, twist, and crack. They are made very cheaply with Chinese materials. Our panels are made from the absolute best materials. They are made 100% in USA, using materials sourced from the USA.
James Abke’s new system can hold huge amounts of luggage. Sing Core technology allowed him to have more than one layer of storage in the back of his van. With our technology, we can manufacture panels that are stronger, more durable, lighter in weight, more warp resistant, available in more skins, with more bells and whistles. Moreover, they come in any size, larger than any other panels on the market, they are more visually appealing, and come with many more features. Not to mention, they are the only panels on the market that come with a full 50 Year Warp Free Guarantee. They are 100% made in America, using materials sourced from the united states.
