    Ok so it's been a while and lots of progress has been made.
     
    We have added a side compartment, finished interior electrical, coated the interior in approved kitchen grade aluminum, remodeled the main cabin, installed the generator and the generator vents and exhaust, had custom made equipment, etc.
     
    Here is some progress in pics, these are older, the new ones I will post in the coming days:

    Nice project! I am currently planning a similar rehab of an '87 Kurbmaster/value van. Small truck, easy to manage, solar PV and hot water. Right now I'm working out the details of lowering it 3"
