For the bed situation you really have two options. A futon thing you all plop out on or this is perfect if you really want bunks.

Literally designed to stack in small spaces and cheap as fuck.

Those are nice. I was leaning towards doing a custom wood system with a wall kitchen and storage that comes out of the back doors. Slide out prep areas, marine refrigerator, running 2 170 solar panels on the roof. Then build the interior with a dual bunk system with a table in between, a fold down bed extender that creates a full/queen out of the bottom bunks. That gets the kitchen setup out of the interior. I haven't seen any buildouts like I have envisioned so I will have to see if it works. Most van people are single or young couples so they don't have to plan around small children. It's an interesting project, but honestly I want to be mobile. Living in a hyper Leftist area I'd prefer options if things get weird.

I am not super handy myself so I am not sure if I am willing to buy tons of tools to build a lot of stuff. Shopping around for used customs on ebay has a lot of options IMO. A bit pricey but r/vandwellers has some pretty nice cheap ideas too.

Get you a nice late 70's-early 80's Chevy conversion van, everything's already laid out nicely. I used to have one of these, lived out of it for a few years.

This is what I was thinking. These older ones. Even fully rebuilt Wesfalia Vanagons from the 80's only cost like $22k. I do absolutely hate the 70's style interior but that isn't that big of a deal to change out. I like Gravel Gravel 's Ram Promaster suggestion because realistically anytime I use this I'll be lugging around at least two bicycles and all of my skydiving shit.

This is my Van called the N....r D..K or the Bang Bus
Yes i call it that, cause it's big and black and my wife loves it.
8 seater with seats all folding flat front to back, fits a queen size bed in no problem
Great for holidays and travelling, 4WD too

Does the (G) stand for gang? I expected a more ghetto look for gang rape vans, maybe some bullet holes.

Are you blaming America for this? Because I don't think Mitsubishi Delica's were even sold in the states. Most Mitsu's were rebadged as Dodge.

A thread after my own heart. Here's the inside of my Ford transit that I've turned into a roaming water sport mobile. At any one time there's an assortment of surfboards, paddleboards, kiteboarding gear, etc. along with a shit ton of sand.
