New galley...

Just got our 06 RB50 back from Overland Van Project in Milwaukee Oregon.
Replaced the entire galley cabinet, replaced the fridge with a much larger, modern unit, replaced and moved the sink, replaced both fresh water tanks for more capacity and replaced the door mounted pantry cabinet with a floor mounted unit that has propane in the base for using a camp stone on the larger fold down table.
These guys are not cheap, but they do fantastic work and are willing to tackle nearly any project.

Fridge looks nice -- is that the slide-out drawer style?

We have that size in our van. It's almost oversized for the size of the vehicle. Love having the big fridge in there.

If my old fridge ever quits that's the style I want. Currently I have the Norcold that was installed in the van originally.

Impossible!

Dave, very nice. How does it feel having a usable sink for a change?

That is one sweet ride now Dave! You moved fast and dialed this thing in. It looks great.

Thanks Brad!

One piece at a time...
I'm feeling pretty confident in the mechanical side of it now, so it was time to focus on the "softer" side.

I'm still fiddling with propane quick fittings and adapting my Camp Chef Mt Everest, but that's just a matter of finding and assembling the right bits and pieces.

I'm currently designing a shelf/rack for the very rear that will hold four Sidio crates yet allow room for our feet underneath, offering a ton more inside storage.

Then I'll finish the comms with a CB mounted overhead (already have Ham and GMRS) and a pair of Rosen visors.

Ditch lights on Vantage mounts and 100 watts of passive solar are on the short list, but will come a little later in the season.

Right now I'm scheduled for the second week of March at Precision Auto Body to replace my drivers door, then the wrap guy gets it. That'll be the beginning and end of frivolous cosmetics... lol
