Additional Work Needed

I have tried to organize these by priority. I am open to hearing any suggestions you may have.

  1. Complete the Pantry area electrical panel and organize it better. I did not have proper swaging tools to make the required cables.
  2. We currently use a Dometic portable top load fridge that we could continue to use but this would need a track so it could be slid under the pantry. Alternative:  Install a Vitrofugio fridge into pantry with microwave above and electrical panel/storage below.
  3. Flexible (preferred) or fixed solar panels installed and wired to the CTEK controller.
  4. Completion of electrical switches with convenient locations. I can provide a wiring diagram for this.
  5. House AC electrical system installed. Wiring is already installed to bring power from back left of van to pantry and then to sink base.
  6. Grey water and fresh water tanks installed under the van near the sink. Water pump and sink already installed. Tanks to have drains at bottom for easy maintenance.
  7. Insulation or heating for the tanks to be either installed or planned for to allow for winter camping.
  8. Bench seat installed behind the drivers seat with storage for a pull out toilet.
  9. Swivel for passenger seat

Optional additional work

  1. Swivel for drivers seat – might not be necessary due to bench behind drivers seat
  2. Table for the bench that can be setup and removed easily – possible storage at the end of the sink cabinet.
  3. Lift the van.
  4. Replace the tires with snow rates tires (if work can be done for this winter.)
  5. Interior space heater powered by gasoline or propane.
  6. Space for portable generator
  7. Amplifier for the stereo and a subwoofer – already wired behind drivers seat

Interior Finishing Notes

I would like to see the trim wood used for finishing off the ceiling.
Also there is a small space behind driver seat maybe a small cabinet could fit for either car box stuff or toiletries…..
Sliding doors for under the sink would be a finished look. Maybe a door for pantry/closet.
Floor covering, sand is getting under rubber Matt between seats and back, and will be impossible to get out.
