Parking is not an issue. Eventually, go with the Penthouse poptop. Goucho bed, with fridge/sink/cupboard configeration will suit your internal storage solution. Check out Sportsmobile Custom Camper Vans - Your Home Away From Home
for cut & paste layouts, even if you do your own, for ideas.
Love my 08 Ford eb 6.0.
Good Luck, Cheers.
