The ol 1967 van has been used a bit for camping in the past, but it was mostly for warmer weather camping where you are inside the van mostly to sleep. Most everything else was done outside around a campfire, if possible. Now, I need a van that I can get inside and spend some time if the weather isn’t too good. So, to this, I decided to build more shelves in the van to get things out of the way.
This is a pic of the ol van.
This is how I started it all, with the framing.
That’s just the framing. After working on it for about two months, it looks like this.
It has a heater. That’s just a place to store it. I’ve since moved it and got a larger one.
And an electrical panel.
I plan to sleep on the floor on a foam bed that I can leave the bed made up and fold it up under the back shelf when not in use. I enlarged the battery box so I can have an extra battery to power things, like computers, lights and cams. Just need to add the extra battery and put a new door seal on the drivers side and do a bit of work to keep the water out off the drips above the doors and I should be ready for a shake down cruise. Shake down cruise will likely be up in the Fort Brag, ca. way in a couple weeks or so, as soon as the weather gets a little better.
