Someone is going to score a killer rig at a great price. I don't expect this will last long.

Beautiful van and good luck with sale!
I'm curious where the aux fuel is located since spare tire location is used for storage?
Plus, you have propane on driver side!

Any chance you could post a pic of tank locations?
Thanks!

The transfer flow tank is in front of the rear axle. I know because I'm replacing the fuel pump in mine now. Fits nicely in that spot. They don't manufacture that tank any more sorry.

Thanks. That seems like the ideal spot, which is often wasted. Good for weight distribution and keeping the spare tire storage.

You might be able to fit a captains seat (maybe on a quick release base) but it would be right in front of the side barn doors. You may want to explore that possibility if its the only thing keeping from this rig.

It looks like if the short cabinet was removed, you can fit a seat pretty easily. As Herb said, I would look into that if the setup otherwise fits your needs. Wouldn't cost much or be too much work to get it done.

Yes, the 'short cabinet' is the box I made for the cassette toilet and is held in place with a few small brackets. It would take at most 5 minutes to remove and the flooring and cabinets below/behind match. We also thought on installing a chair in this location. There are also seat belts on the side facing bench where we put the car seat for the last couple years.
