Nice to know there are other "goofballs" in this world. I've had my conversion van for about 6 months now, (not as fancy or elaborate as yours), and have been on a couple of trips, and have really enjoyed the drives and the freedom to stop and sleep anywhere. Being a retired truck driver, I am used to eating at truck stops, etc., so I travel pretty light and carefree. With the advent of 12 volt everything, plus inverters, laptops, cellphones, etc., it's easy to live in the van for short trips. Hope you enjoy yours as much as I do …. maybe see ya on the road someday!! My Ford E150 has Peterbilt badges on it, so I nic-named it "Lil' Pete". Safe journeys HH.

You can charge your phone with the 12v system. Just install a usb outlet to plug into.

I would mount a 6" diameter pvc tube for water to take warm showers or for cleaning dishes, instsll a port for filling water & a valve stem to add psi.
