Van build so far
#1
So, as previously, told my employer gave me a 1992 GMC G30 Rally STX van. Money has been tight and progress slow, but, here are pictures of what we've managed so far. As you look, imagine a 12v fridge between the front seats and the Coleman two burner on top of the counter. Plug in installed under left taillight for 110v and connector under right taillight for freestanding solar panel. Next to hanging closet will be shelf unit. Batteries will be under bed and I have run wires to front dash for dual 12v socket (one for starting battery and one for house battery) for fridge. Bonus, I can plug jumper between the two to charge house battery while driving if needed. Jury is out on the Maxxair II cover, it might go away - looks like hell, but, I like the idea of protection from hail and leaving it open in rain. Full size bed across the back    OK, here ya go, let me know what you think.

Curtain will cover long windows. Tip out windows on barn doors and above counter will get bug screens. TV (wifes idea) will go beside closet. Lots of room for tote storage under bed, solar panel will store inside back doors when moving. Work in progress....

Added cover in front of propane tank and built poor mans drawer with apiece of political sign for drawer bottom til I can get right size wood...hey. poor folk gots poor ways. Mounted double 12v cig receptacle on counter top next to bed for charging cell phone and to plug in 12v electric blanket. [gotta keep momma warm ;-) ] Also added new clear LEDs to the parking lights - makes it different looking than the usual solid amber. Still waiting for two post connectors for dash to plug in 12v fridge, fuse block and inline fuse holders so I can complete wiring.
Progress marches on.

Is the propane tank generally inside people’s van? Do you provide venting for the tank as is done with all RVs? Safety is always #1!
