After 5 years of lurking I finally pulled the trigger. Been a Jeep/Tent camper since the kids left and we sold the Coleman Popup. I'll be asking for your suggestions on:

East Coast Activities
PortaPottie
Leveling
New Stereo
Awning
No PH Bed, so suggestions on making one for the grandkids
Any other suggestions

Welcome to the group and congrats on getting a great looking van.

Porta Patti - we have the Thetford Curve. It works great.
Penthouse bed - there are all sorts of ways to make one. The simplest is a sheet of 3/4" plywood with a couple of inches of foam on top. Many are suspended from the roof when not in use.
Leveling blocks - we have a set made by Camco but hardly ever use them. Have also used homemade wood ramps and tree stumps.
Awning - lots of options here. Use a tarp that attaches to the van on one side, others have Fiama awnings that are permanently attached.
