Re: Swedish Van Build

Very nice work!

I like how organized everything seems to be in your van. Everything in it's own place. It does look like the fire extinguisher might be a little difficult to get to in an emergency though.

I did notice a number of penetrations in the roof, which I assume were for antennas and lights. Keep an eye on those areas for water leaking through and for rust.

The GT 80 decal is a nice touch.

Really cool setup. I love the interior layout with folding table and rear storage. Lots of unique ideas there!

Thanks for sharing the pics.

11:00 pm. Weird.

Does the bed slide out or fold over?

Re: Swedish Van Build

Impressive well thought out design.

Having the seperate "wet" storage in the back is kind of a rare design element. I can see how useful it would be. The awning attatched to a roof rack is another excellent idea. I also like the ladder setup that allows you use the additional storage on the roof.

Do you find it hard to cook with the low roof on the van? With the back of the van all closed off do you have any issues with ventelation?
