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.
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 '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.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.
