I found this guys web page very helpful when we planned our van. We used the same Shurflo bath and shower faucet and it is awesome and very controllable.

https://davidelmore.com/Equipment.php

We have a 20 gal water tank which I find adequate. I rigged up a simple siphon system where I can fill a portable water jug at a camp faucet, set it on the van floor, put the siphon hose into the jug, flip a couple valve levers and turn on my electric water pump to pump it into the freshwater tank. I can add 5-10 gallons in a few minutes with minimal hassle. Water is heavy and takes up a lot of valuable interior storage space. I donít find the need for a huge freshwater tank with my siphon system.

That is my website and I am glad it was helpful. The original faucet that I describe on my site was good, but when it wore out I could not find the same head without buying the whole faucet assembly.

I need to mention that I had trouble with the $11 shower head that I linked to Amazon for in post #9 above. We use it in our bathroom sink so it gets used several times a day and we are on a 2-month trip. So after a few hundred uses it jammed up and would not turn off. I poured some cooking oil in the top of it and then after fiddling with it for a while finally got it to work like new. I suggest pouring some cooking oil in the top of it on a regular basis before it jams.

For anyone watching or considering, my van was completed in Charleston a few weeks ago and is in transport to Sportsmobile West. Thats 10 months from placing a deposit. Could be on site by end of month or sooner.

Van has arrived. Almost finalized build out at sportsmobile west today, Minor details left. Van should be in production next week. Those two year waits seem to be over.

Had some delays, but van is well underway. Estimated completion sometime in March.
Placed deposit on van a year ago to the day. Nothing new as far as batteries or other equipment than what has been well documented on this forum already so I’m not going to beat a dead horse. My layout is a little different than what I’ve seen so I’ll post pics of that after pick up. I think it’s going to be spot on for a family of 4 that likes to surf... I’m pretty stoked on the build though due to the help of everyone before me. Made decisions easy.
