Traverse to modern surf project

All
Im very appreciative to all of the big brains and thoughtful members of this forum. I have been working on a complete redo of a 2002 Pleasure Way Traverse that had been converted by Agile, with the full RIP kit and 45 Gal tank. This was Ramsey's van. The goal was to take a great platform and very solid van, and simplify the systems that would be problematic. for example, the water system was pretty funky--moldy, and I wasnt really stoked on the propane system--propane itself and tank location. I wanted to optimize for surf trips. We are redoing the interior with flush mount doors and we vinyl wrapped the cabinets, and made many new panels, while adding insulation and Dynomat. Moved house batteries to the spare tire well, and added roof rack and solar. 12v fridge replaced the 110 unit, and cooktop is now induction, and new microwave is installed--along with forum recommended full sine wave inverter. Lots of lighting has been added and upgraded to LED's inside and out. lots of mods to seats (massage/heat), later model mirrors, communications (HAM/CB/Cell phone booster), on board air, new tires/wheels. Ive learned and taken so much of the advice on these systems that you have all posted. We still have a couple of weeks of wiring and finish work to go--incl exhaust and the install of a solid rear drivers side barn door window from opt Overland, but I thought I would post a couple of pix to show progress. Grateful to this group for the info and stoke...Only a few more bits to install, and finish.
Thx again,
MJ

Your interior panel work is impressive! I need to do the same, but I don't think my results will match...

What tires did you go with? I surf with mine as well (West Coast and Baja).

Nice work.

Here are some more interior panel shots...The goal was to have a very clean look that would be easy to keep clean. We used a great vinyl for the cabinet/panel wrap, with alcantara for the headliner and accents, along with a durable woven tonal fabric for rear seat and upper bunk. Flooring is Pirelli style coin pattern in a 1/4" rubber. Counter top is "stainless" laminate. Panels are all attached with stainless allen head screws. Lighting is dimmable LED, fridge is a Norcold marine unit.
Sorry for the sideways images...posting on the run this am.

Well done! curious though, the tires seem to be larger than most (may be just the angle of the pictures), are the Ridgegrappler's 37x13.5's or 35x12.5's?
