Goliath is his name and he is ready for anything. It was my dream to build and own a van as cool as this and I’m so grateful for the experience. Goliath runs like a champ and has never had any reason to visit the shop besides timely maintenance and new tires. Speaking of tires, I just had all-terrains installed on the stock rims and they look great. I have the stock hub caps if you want them. My priorities for the build were to be able to stealth camp without worry, be confidently off-grid and safely store surfboards inside. All of those goals were achieved! My handmade curtains easily slide on tight rails and use magnets to ensure interior light is not visible from the outside at night. The 300 watts in solar panels keep the battery charged even after several cloudy days. The victron converter and components supply power to AC and DC outlets. I usually use an induction cooktop since solar is free, but I have a propane camping stove for meals that involve a higher level of culinary excellence. The surfboard compartment easily stores 3 boards up to 8 feet in length and depending on the arrangement, you might not need to remove fins. If you don’t surf, your skis or any other long items can find a home in this compartment. I am 6'3" and built the interior to fit a big person. I can stand on the floor with shoes and a hat without touching the ceiling. Van builds with cabinets on both sides can feel claustrophobic, so I opted to put cabinets on one side and installed a large over-cabin closet. I love the resulting spacious feel of the galley! There is additional storage in the passenger side bench, under the sink, and in the huge garage. The bed is KING-SIZED and super comfortable. It converts to a dining area with a swivel table. The resulting C-shaped bench makes for a great sleeping arrangement if you are on an adventure with a buddy and aren't interested in a late-night cuddle. If you are feeling lazy and want to keep the van in bed-mode for the day, have no fear…the swiveling passenger seat turns to face the galley and a collapsible table hidden behind the driver seat makes for an excellent secondary dining area. The addition of a small camping chair makes this secondary dining option great for 2. If you want to get a better look at the surf, sunbathe, or star-gaze at night, the rooftop deck is the perfect spot for you and a few friends. Some of my favorite van memories have been sitting up on the roof with my fiancée sipping a glass of wine at sunset. The back-door ladder also serves as a great multi-level clothesline when needed. What I am trying to say is that Goliath is pretty friggin awesome and I need to find someone who will love taking him out on adventures as much as I have. Please contact me if you think that person could be you :) ~~~~~~~~~~ Amenities: King-sized bed Convertible dining layout Swivel Table Swivel passenger chair Two-zone dimmable lighting (galley and bedroom) Victon Inverter and components for AC and DC power Lithium battery sourced from Tesla Model S (5kWh) AC single burner induction cooktop Dual Burner gas camping stove DC refrigerator Two Maxxair fans (rain shower safe) Large stainless-steel sink Stainless-steel faucet/spray hose Over-cabin closet 8 foot long surfboard cabinet for 3 boards Large under-bed garage with interior access door 360 degree blackout curtains 30 gallon freshwater tank 7 gallon greywater tank Cassette Toilet (fits on sliding mount under sink)
