It's the 148 EB so it's a little less than 20 ft. for roof height it's the mid roof and again I can barely stand in it, but I like the looks of the 20 ft mid roof.

You nailed it, Jon! Great planning. Thank you for your replies.

Nice setup. I think you pretty much nailed it. I like the toilet/shower without a sink. More space efficient and you're literally one step away from a sink.

What's the floor elevation change between the cab and the coach? Is it flush, a slight rise, or will you have your knees at your chest when you turn the seats?

What's the standing height inside? I think the mid roof is passable for me too at 5'8" unless I lose too much in the floor and ceiling with insulation.

I'd be interested in a permanent bed version too. I only need 4 belts, and those look way more comfortable than the bolt-upright ones in the Aktivs.

Thanks for sharing your pics.

The floor is the same as the coach so it's good for swiveling the seats (minus 3/4 " plywood flooring).

The standing height inside is right at 5'(8"- 9") I can barely stand upright with shoes on. My license says 5' 9" but I've probably gotten shorter in my 56 years of age.

I only need 3 seat belts too but I find that our daughter and dog seem to prefer riding on the sofa. I figure the more seat belts the better.

Not enough height for me, but pretty good inside height at 5'9".

Looks great, Jon. How long did it take Van Specialties to complete your build?

It only took a couple months once I got through the waiting list. They had a 10 month waiting list when I gave a deposit, but I can't tell what it is now. It could be more or less.

How much does it cost for your Van Specialties Camper Van conversation? Do you have lithium battery setup too!

Oh, I hate to admit the full cost because of the amount of stuff I added including 400 amp/hrs lithium batteries, gasoline cabin heater, marine water heater with heat coil that hooks to engine coolant water, and of coarse a ceramic toilet.
I wanted to spend a little more and not have to add stuff later. I spent a little over 100K including the van.
