We just completed our first major trip with the mostly completed van. Went from Seattle down through Bryce, Zion and Grand Canyon. Then Vegas, Santa Barbara and up the west coast. 3,500 miles over 11 days. Everything worked great and came up with a good list of improvements to make. 200Ah of Li proved adequate for about 2 days. Fridge is the main draw for us.



Before we left I got the unfinished upper cabinets in. This made a huge difference with storage.



Also finished a vertical pantry drawer.



Looking forward to tackling the rest of the build.

Working on some minor improvements to the van. There is a somewhat hidden, but not really storage space below one counter. Added some latches so it doesn’t rattle while driving.





Had a little fun with the laser cutter to make the vent cover for above the refrigerator.



I am going to try and get a shelf above the cab done soon. More storage space the better!

More laser cutter fun. My wife asked for a reference for the electrical system switch settings and I needed to cover up a gap in how the cabinet went together so I made a little sign.

Nice build. Very nice.

I might also be interested in some switch covers.
