Think Ive seen this guy before, the interior finish is pretty dank. Wonder if you can throw some fiberglass batts in there

Some vans are prone to fluid leaks coming from the ground up, so I would maybe make sure your floor is accessible / moveable for cleaning, otherwise you could have mold, smell or chemical problems

He could purchase one of those small portable toilets (available on Amazon) and slid it underneath the stove. That's what I would have in case I gotta go emergency poo poo! (No pun). I can see peeing in a bottle though.
For the party lights? I don't think so but that's just me.
Be nice to have I can afford a used van, it's just the money for putting something like that together + gas and insurance. My bicycle is my RV right now (no pun).
Thanks Coywolf for sharing the video!

I'd recommend a Freightliner MT45, or any type of similar aluminum body Step Van with a Cummins 5.9/6.7 engine. Old Fedex/USPS delivery trucks. Good fuel mileage, easy to work on, lots of room, can find em at auctions for well under $5,000. Thats what 3 of my friends have done. My best friend as been living in one for 3 years. The automotive vans just don't seem like a enough space.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    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
    $60.00 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 this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $60.00 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
    $60.00 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.
