Thank you! The couple of weeks leading up to our trip were a real test, but I am happy with it now that I made it through it. Now just a few clean-up things on the cabinets then it's back to it to finish the electrical, plumbing, and I am sure a few other things.

Man, that cabinetry came out fantastic! I hope you don't mind but I'm about to redo my current van and am looking at your floor plan exactly. I might contact you with more questions.

Can't wait to show my wife what I've had in my head for awhile.

Great work! For the shower port, what did you use (name/part number would be great if you know it). I want to add a shower post to the existing plumbing on my SMB and like the looks of the one you installed. Thanks!

Thank you! I am glad people like seeing all the progress and not just the final product.

Thank you! It really is a huge job and I'm very happy to be over what I hope is the biggest hurdle.

Thank you! The cabinet design was something I played with for a while before finally figuring out what I wanted. It requires more accuracy than face frame or overlay cabinets, but in the end, I think the extra work was with it. If you have any questions feel free to reach out or post them and I will be happy to answer anything I can.

Thank you!

The shower port is from a company called Aquor. The first time I saw them was in higher-end home building, and then just a few months ago I saw it used in a van. I went to their website and they had a Marine /RV product area, so I figured I would try it out. The one I used based on the recommendation of someone at the company was their RV City Water Inlet SKU: DW-5. Then I used there Matte Black Stainless Debris Cover-V1 SKU: MC-V1-TI for the cover. Their system seems pretty slick and the build quality is great. I can't 100% vouch for it as I don't have it fully plumbed yet, but I did talk to them before buying and their customer service is top-notch so hopefully, if I have an issue they can help.

Video Tour

Just in case anyone wants to see it I put together a quick video walkthrough tour of the van. It's the first time I have ever recorded or edited a video, so don't expect too much.
