I would like to say hi! HI!
I don’t have a van, maybe in the future.(Although my daughter has expressed a fleeting interest in van life) Right now I have a little tiny homemade travel trailer. I love it! I started watching van life videos on youtube to get ideas for my travel trailer. The way van lifers use the small amount of room they have available is very impressive! Right now I am working on my “kitchen” area. I am looking at small refrigerators. I have room for a small one. No higher than 15 inches, 22 inches wide and 12 inches front to back (depth?). I have a small little solar power box that can power a 12 volt. I prefer it to open from the top.
So far the travel trailer has a gravity water system, with a small sink, and gray water tank. It has a pull out bed/couch for me and hubby. I built a canopy bed for our daughter with a privacy curtain. It has a small little hideaway cassette potty. A shower that I can pack away in a plastic bin with a rechargeable shower head. I have 2 shelves that hold our clothes, food, games, plates, bowls, dog food, hot plate, toaster oven, heater and a/c. We have a little gas generator.
We have taken it out several times since we have had it over the last 2 years. We plan on traveling more. Which is the reason why I am looking for a more efficient fridge that fits in my last little spot. I love this little thing. I didn’t build it. But I have put a lot of work into it to make it more efficient. I hope to get some great ideas!!!
