2023 AWD 170 DIY CamperVan
A DIN radio can fit in there.
Yes. You will likely face weight issues. Net payload after buildup in most Bs is somewhat limited. Add supplies, tools and utensils/dishes, a galley of some sort and your will likely not have enough GW headroom for nine. And no bathroom.....I personally think that just addressing the moist air resulting from 9 human beings sleeping and breathing within the volume of a 170 van makes the idea insane. But to offer some input...
Assuming some screen walls are included, a pop top will help to address the moisture produced by the number of humans you plan to have sleeping/breathing in your small box. Without a pop top or some designed ventilation you might consider an O2 level monitor as a safety device.
Overall weight can be an issue. Consider pipe berth style sleeping similar to what is used in some racing sailboats. It will keep weight down a bit.
In case it may be an acceptable consideration, an air lock tent can significantly expand the living space of a van while parked for sleeping mode.
What up D? This looks awesome. I'll be adding this to my build list. BTW, Sorry I missed the meet up. I ended up being out of town that weekend. I'd love to do a rain check.The VanTop mirror is awesome. I had to get a few accessories to wire it all up:
- VanTop H612T 12” 4K Mirror Dash Cam
- Extension cable to run the wire for the rear camera (which I installed just below the regular rear camera)
- The hardwire kit (the mirror only comes w/ a cigarette adapter plug)

D, how did you wire the new rear view camera below the regular rear view camera? Did you have to create a new penetration in the roof or where you able to somehow utilize the existing camera's opening? I'd also be curious how you mounted it. I'm about to pull the trigger. It would be great to get visibility behind the van while driving.What up D? This looks awesome. I'll be adding this to my build list. BTW, Sorry I missed the meet up.
