Full DIY build for full-time vanlife with kids! I built this in 2021 for myself and my 2 kids (twins were 5) to live full-time vanlife, save a ton of money on living expenses, and pay off my debts. I lived in it full-time for a year, and now it's time to settle down into a house in Vancouver WA. Ready to sell it to the next family to enjoy. Floorplan includes: - Stand-up shower / bathroom with 8-gallon Bosch electric water heater and LED lighting. I used a removeable cartridge toilet, but I don't think you want that one :P - Closet with room for storage and hanging clothes, with 5 drawers underneath (1 shallow and 4 deeper ones). Extra large drawer under fridge for laundry. - Vent fan positioned to help with shower moisture and cooking - CO and propane detector Bed / Dining area - Master bed is bigger than full-size, not quite a queen. Comfortably sleeps 2, but you can squeeze 3 on there :) - Master bed converts to a 2-bench with table dining area. Table folds to make it easier to get in / out. - Back cushion of each bench can be mounted directly to wall or to fold-up bunk beds with optional ladders. - When folded up, I used Beddys for the kids bunk beds so they didn't fall out. They are roughly toddler bed size each. There's a shelf for each bed too. Kitchen - Deep Kohler sink with drain to gray tank under van - Pull-down brushed nickel faucet and separate spout with water filtration system - 2-burner propane stove - Dimmable LED lighting and overhead food storage. - Butcher block counter with flip-up extra counter space, and aluminum backsplash. - 3.3 cuFt Magic Chef vertical refrigerator with freezer tray - very low power usage! - GE Microwave oven Electric System - 200 Ah LifePO4 lithium battery storage (2x AmpereTime 100 Ah) - 400W Renogy solar panels on roof, with 40A Renogy MPTT charge controller and Bluetooth connectivity to your smartphone - 40A Renogy DC-DC charger with MPTT to charge cabin battery from alternator - 12V Fusebox for all 12v systems. LEDs light when a fuse blows. Extra 12V plug at back of bed / bench - 2000W Pure sine wave inverter wired to small breaker box, driving all A/C devices and plugs - A/C plugs in kitchen, bed area, and in front of shower. Plugs have 12V USB charger jacks - Timer dial for water heater to save power when hot water is not needed - Fresh water level guage, battery voltmeter, and inverter control installed above microwave Water system - 30 Gal fresh tank with pump-fill (I used a bucket to fill the water tank - gravity-fill caused too much mess) - 12V water pump, with on/off switch in back and under kitchen sink - Expansion chamber for even water pressure when pump is running - 8 Gal Bosch water heater for both sink and shower - Water filter in kitchen with separate spout - Shower and sink drain to 2 gray water tanks underneath (I left the drain open most of the time) Other info: - New tires, recent oil change. Clean inside and out - Needs CAT converter; engine light is on but the dealer says it just needs new CATs and it will be fine - No windows because I wanted it to be stealthy. Easy to add to sliding or back doors if desired...but I wouldn't try to add to back walls due to wiring - The outside looks kinda banged up - it was like then when I purchased the van, but I left it as-is because I wanted it kinda stealthy. It's not too bad, but there are some visible bumps on the outside - There's an A/C installed, but it doesn't work well. Perhaps you could improve the setup! - Currently financed and insured...needs new registration / tags. - I have all of the manuals for all of the parts and appliances used.
