nice nice, ever thought of stripping the thing down even more? like the side plastics and stuff..not sure if it would give you a lil bit more room? idk. I've seen some people do a full L shape bench that goes along one side and the back.

Yeah, I have...I'm going to hit up RTR this time and maybe get some ideas, but I also kinda want to get intosomething bigger with more ground clearance, soI don't want to go crazy with this van.

It will be in January I believe. Don't know the exact when or the exact location. I'm pretty much relying on talking to other rubbertramps as I make my way west. Lol

Because of the crowds and other restrictions the RTR will not be in quartzsite but somewhere near Anza-Borrego in California. Actually they are still looking for a suitable place.
Nice remodel. always think that because of weather conditions you might be stuck inside for a day or two so you want room to be comfortable. You want space. That's my only tip. I don't know how you camp or travel or if you live on public land. My last remodel, I've included a photograph of the room I have inside.

Thanks for the info.

I kinda just threw my stuff in and hit the road, no room for a couch for sure, but wish I'd made my bunk more of futon situation. Haha I can sit up and lean back on my pillow & warm weather bag though.
I'm thinking of making some kind of window inserts for insulation. I survived last year fine, but holding in more heat is always nice. Especially in more humid environments.

Windows are the bane of vehicle dwelling. Sure, they can give a nice view, but that's what outside is for. As is they are heat loss magnets during the winter, and heat amplifiers during the summer. Try a layered approach to insulating them, Reflectix and foam, along with heavy fabric.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$0.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Last post, but, is it bad that I sometimes inhale rubbing alcohol fumes to relieve tension?

Cause every now and then I'll like, inhale a bit, and then I feel it hit me in my brain, and I just feel, perked up and less stressed.

lol it's a terrible idea, I know.
Georgia is now lockdown. Let's see if my dumbass neighbors will go out for their drugs.

I'm about to buy a trowel and start digging catholes. I'm tired of waiting 30 minutes to take a shit and then having to force my intestines out all because I got constipated waiting for the bathroom.

This dumpster was amazing;I'd often found throwaways of the big liter bottles they ship syrup with codiene to pharmacies in. Because of the consistency of it there would always be an ounce or two in the bottle they didnt get out. I'd get 2 or 3, spatula scrape out the good, make some szrrrp, put on DJ screw and get faded. :)
