  • Full roof-top canopy
  • Minisplit AC/Heat with Compressor inside the van (behind bathroom) w/ vent fans bringing fresh air in
  • Espar diesel heat for heating on long cold nights without draining battery
  • 4-season design… only freshwater tank outside of van w/ water tank heaters.

  • 160amp / 57v 2nd alternator for charging without solar
  • High idle kit
  • 3kw diesel generator as a backup
  • 300lbs hitch storage in dual yakima containers
  • Blackout curtains separate driver/passenger seats from living area for max stealth
  • 100v outlets outside and on roof – so I can grill either place with my electric grill – No Propane!


And here’s the roof deck. The little black things that look like cannons are flag poll holders. I put aluminum tent poles in them to hold up the nylon canopy

Nice build, good quality!! Any additional pictures and details of the van make and model?

what kind of van? any installation pics of the Minisplit?

I would love to see more pics of your build! Looks amazing from what I can see.
