I am currently planning a road trip for me and a good friend for a after college celebration that I intended to do in a van. I have a couple ideas for the set up of the van, just wanting a second opinion.
I would get a work van and go on from there.
A bed would go at the very back on a hand made bed frame above the wheels.
I will be carpeting the floor.
Putting up fabric in the back windows to keep the sun out, and light in.
A make shift curtain will go behind the seats for privacy and to again keep the sun out of the back.
I will use a camping stove top with two coils, and a microwave that will be built into a type of box. These will be powered by a deep cycle batter, I think.
For keeping things cold, I will just use a cooler and ice, I think that's my best option.
I will have one light, and will also be ran by the battery.
I am cutting a hole in the top of the van and putting a vent/fan to keep the air somewhat going through.
I've heard deep cycle batteries work best because they can run down to 50% battery, and then be charged by the car battery while your driving.
All opinions and ideas would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks everyone!
