Rear HVAC:
We're in the Bay and don't go snow camping or similar. So what I'm still thinking about is to remove the bottom heat tubing. The cold AC comes in on the top and warm air comes out down at the floor. We typically don't turn on the heater, so that I could remove it to have the side wall build easier...

I don't have a fully build out van as I don't need it. But I used a rubber floor (like coin or diamond flooring). That was the best I could have done: easy to vacuum, easy to wash off, you can slide whatever you have over it without damage.

Thanks again for the info. I've been researching what others have done with the rear AC.

We are leaning on a vinyl flooring with a yacht feel to it. We are a boating family as well.

Since the space is limited and I am 6'4", building a large enough sleeping area is key. We plan to use 2 bench seat facing each other with a table that converts into the center of the bed. We are making a quick mock up of the driver's side cabinets for spatial reference. My concern is the amount of electrical components and where to fit them.

My brother in-law assures me we can reduce the amount of plywood and build lighter framed panels with 1/4" inserts similar to a cabinet door. A shaker style cabinet should be easy to do.

I'll post photos of my cardboard cutouts if there's anything interesting going on.

Take care.
