I added a Lagun swivel table mount. There are 2 locations to mount the table, one in the rear where it can function as a side table while sitting on the beds, or up front where it can be extra storage while working in the kitchen etc.


There are 4 overhead LED puck lights in the ceiling controlled by a dimmer on the side of the galley wall in the electrical control spot. Here you can see the dimmer on the right and the 110v and 12v distribution outlets. There’s also the victron battery monitor. Under the overhead cabinet is the galley

Suspension Mod

So, one of the things with the Promaster chassis is that it’s setup for hauling big weight. Now that’s all great if you’re a stone mason who’s hauling a flat of stone to your next project… but if you are building a light weight camper you are left with a nose low tail high stance,

Swivel Seat

I installed a swivel seat base for the passenger seat. This will give us some extra seating when in camping mode. The swivel is from Swivels-r-us and turns very easy. It’s a nice high quality part that fit the bolts and seat rails perfectly. The swivel raised the seat by 1.5″ so then I got

Solar Panel

I’m mounting a single 285W 60cell solar panel to the roof. First up is to figure out the brackets to hold it in place, but allow it to be removed if needed down the road. Thinking about doing something like this. With nutplates riveted to a carrier strip of aluminum that is glued to the

Electrical Buildout

The very first thing was to take a volt-meter and test and label all the 12v circuits so that later once it’s in place in the van I can easily attach the branch circuits to the correct locations. I also added the 110v breakers that will serve the shore power system in the van. I


Might be a bit much calling it the kitchen, but still, it’s at least the galley cabinet and fridge.  I’m using an ARB50QT fridge, mounted on a custom built slider tray. There are two drawers at the top, one of which has a sliding tray inside for silverware. Then the heater is on the left


Work is underway on building out the bed structure and fixed parts of the boxes. It’s built with a combination of 18mm and 12mm birch plywood. There are fixed areas at each end of each bed where the tops will be secured down and access is via side mounted doors. The center part of both

Electrical Design

Basic design criteria. 2 modes of operation. Mode 1 is plugged in to shore power at a campground. In this mode the batteries will be charged by the converter / charger and the van outlets will be directly powered from shore power. I’ll have a mounted wall electric heater as an option as well. In


I am installing windows from Motion Windows into the sides & rear of the van. The plan is to put two in the rear doors, 1 large one in the passenger slider door, and finally one small window on the driver side wall in the kitchen area. It will mean a bunch of cutting to
