List things you wish you had to help make van life comfortable and happy. From hacks you've seen, product, anything! For instance, I wish I had an indoor shower that folded up into the roof when not in use. 


GO!
I'm planning to get myself the leveling chocks and the traction mats that Bob recommended in some posts a while back. And better inside portable lights since I will be doing some winter camping with longer periods of darkness.

A couple of people on this forum have pics of exactly how they did an inside shower with PVC pipes making the enclosure hanging from the ceiling. Maybe they will chime in with the name of their threads. You may want to do a forum search on inside shower or something similar.
An invisibility cloak?

Would be good for stealth!

Seriously though, a nice set of self leveling jacks and the hydraulic system to run them would be great!

Then I could walk around naked! Smile Actually, I don't even do that at home...

I vote for that Wytner frig that's sitting in my shopping cart. I just have to save up that $500 first.

Those traction mats seem like s great idea too.
The only thing on my wish list is for everyone to have a safe, happy, and healthy holidays, and receive everything on their wish lists, since there isn't a single thing that I can think of that I either want or need.

As for the shower, the best solution I know is cheap, simple, and easy. Go to the dollar store and purchase a hula hoop for your shower curtain rod, and the shower curtain hooks, and a couple of shower curtains. (I used 2 because one wasn't quite wide enough for my tastes.) I then hang this with rope to a clothes bar that runs the width of the van. I simply unhook mine and fold it down onto my toilet top, because it is also used as my toilet enclosure, but it should be easy enough to fold upwards as well.

I like this setup a lot because it can be used both indoors and outdoors without duplication, and for a whopping $5.00 it's really hard to beat.
Pretty much satisfied with who I am and where I am at the moment.In other words,my meds are working again.
The winning Powerball ticket so I can build Vantopia.  

1,000 acres with 50 dump/ shower stations and plenty of trees to park under. A WINCO to shop at and free water for everyone. I would place them 200 miles apart in different temperate zones so dwellers can snowbird. 

I am thinking about 5 of them in the Western states should be good for a start.  Big Grin

Haha! I feel that.

Sounds dreamy. I'd start with getting those acres and go from there!  Wink
Help with my aversion to all things electrical.  I have come to believe I am powerless.   Wink
