I really like the idea on the tool chest counter.

Okay a few more pictures of the counter showing the vents and the sign I used to help direct air out underneath. Not going to have any problems with the air coming out of the vents and under the counter, it blows just fine. Also a picture of the counter with drawers. Pretty much ready to take the van on a test run to Utah at the end of the week, just a few little odds and ends. Will do more of the finish work later in the spring.

Put in 2 USB ports yesterday. Both in the upper cabinets. One on the drivers side towards the back and the other on the passenger side at the front of the cabinet. Also cut and reinstalled the headliner. Didn't realize that the headliner is made of compressed wool and some type of adhesive till I started cutting it (used a jig saw). As such it makes another layer of insulation for the roof.

Picture of the back of the van all loaded up for 3 of us. Also photo of campsite cooking outside the van.

Van worked well, our daughter slept under the main bed on a pad when we were camped for numerous days and slept on the plywood table laid across action packers and the bench seat for one night camps.

All electrical worked great as the did the one test I did of the espar heater system.

Now just need to get sink installed etc.. and we will really be living in luxury.

Finally finished putting in the old political signs in the upper cabinets to seal up the insulation. Easy material to work with although the signs themselves are a a bit busy looking in the cabinets. Once I put the doors on though it won't matter too much.

Used 3M tape to attach the signs and this seems to have worked really well.

Stove

Got the bracket for our stove installed today. We are using a river stove that runs on propane for cooking. It is removable so we can still use it for river trips or take it out to cook outside when we want.

A friend welded the bracket for me and I used plus nuts to attach it to the cabinet. At some point I will figure out a better brace system for the outside corner vs the the 2x4 that I came up with today. I had hoped that it wouldn't need this brace but the metal of the stove and bracket just isn't strong enough to support a pot full of water.
