Basic Info I converted a stock 6 cylinder Chevy Express Van 1500 into a RV camper.
Exterior

Exterior is stock with the exception of adding on the driver's side a 30 amp shore power port and a port for solar panels.

Interior

The interior is finished with a white panel board on the ceiling and standard underlayment on the sides. Ceiling and sides have been insulated with fiber glass batting in the ceiling and a foil backed insulation in the side walls.

Customizations
AC electrical power is supplied by a standard RV quality 30 amp shore power system with the entry port just behind the driver's door. The AC distribution panel is a marine quality panel box with AC outlets fore and aft. DC power is supplied by 2 deep cycle marine batteries that feed a 2000 watt full sine wave voltage inverter. Charging for the deep cycle batteries is supplied by a Morning Star 30 amp charge controller that is supported by a single 100 watt solar panel that is connected through an exterior port. The electrical panel has been constructed to support mobile ham radio operations.

Renovations and Repairs
Interior DC lighting is supplied by home made coach lights that were fabricated using Ikea candle lanterns and high intensity LED automotive lights. A 12 volt map light was placed over the electrical panel to illuminate it and the outside of the van. The bed was constructed using a hollow core door and standard hard wood table legs trimmed to fit.
