Thanks for all your posts. My wife and I are considering a DIY conversion, so these posts are helpful.

You mentioned finding work, along with your travels, that will probably be the easiest thing, after this fantastic build. Check out U-Tube about Van Living, there are many and they explain where, how, everything. Ron

We finally managed to install a swivel adapter on the driver side. With the dual batteries option, we found out the Discounvantruck would not fit so we installed a SwivelsRus:

Also, we made a review of both swivel adapters here:

Cheers!

We're working on a bunch of small improvements right now. I guess we can say that we are making progress when our "low-priority" jobs are getting bumped up to "medium priority":

1- We finally got the electrical harness out of the way:



2- The water system is under way:

3- The Nature's Head composting toilet is getting installed (thanks to cargovanconversion.com for the RV Floor Vent info!)


4- We're closing the last wall and installing the Sirocco Fan (http://amzn.to/2n5HSsU). We like it because it's mounted on a 3 axis gimbal and will cover ANY angles:


Voilą! Vive le printemps!
Cheers!

Looking good!

I was just looking back at your build, and one thing caught my eye:
Your Webasto exhaust pipe is a pretty long horizontal run. I am a bit worried that you are going to have an accumulation of condensate water in that pipe that over time will lead to corrosion. You might consider creating a low spot upstream of the muffler and drilling a little weep hole at the bottom of the pipe.

You can buy a commercial drain like this:



but a tiny hole does the job without creating noticeable extra noise.

Default Pressurized Water System

More development!

We installed our water system. It's such a great improvement over water jugs! The downside is that we "waste" a bit more water because it is so easily accessible, but it's so much more convenient...

Here is the full write-up about the installation:
