Looks great. What is the interior layout going to be (e.g. aisle vs RB50 style)? Are you planning on any interior racks for the boards?

Thank you!! We kept the Pleasure Way Traverse lay out, with the galley and closets behind the driver's seat and a folding rear seat-->bed and penthouse bed in pop-top. Short boards and longboards will be roof racked on the Yakima Showdown system. I really liked that as you can lower the rack to the side of the van, tie down, and then put the whole system back up top. we've done some test fits with 4 boards and it worked great. Rack on driver's side, Kuat basket with solar on the passenger side. Im gonna use the front runner ladder brackets for front roof access with a collapsible ladder, and Aluminess ladder for the rear.

Looks great! I really like the easy-to-keep-clean aesthetic. I noticed you're using collapsible rivet nuts to hold your panels on. I've started using those, too. So far, just to replace the plastic push rivets that hold the factory door thresholds in place. Those things are great, aren't they? Sure beats trying to get a nut on the backside of sheet metal to accept a screw. Have you run into any instances where the pullout strength wasn't high enough?

For those interested, these are what I'm referring to: https://www.mcmaster.com/#catalog/124/3398/=1butbq7

So far, so good...We were concerned as well, but the rivnut locations seem super secure.

Nailed it.

What structural material did you use for the panels?
