one) Is anyone using the Adventure Wagon MULE Overhead Storage Locker bags for pantry stuff?
(see below for details)
two) What do folks think of the design (see below)
three) Any alternatives to the Espar (gasoline) for hot water for the shower?
four) Anyone have a ISOTHERM Cruise 130? How is it?
After considering at a full interior build (too expensive)….. and also a ‘basecamp’ build… I think we have settled on something sort of half way in-between.
Below is the what we would like to do.
I’d welcome any thoughts as to what I may be missing / any oversights.
The build will likely be either Sportsmobile Fresno… or American Van Works Stanton CA.
THE THINGS WE ARE 100% SET ON:
22’ high roof 3.5 EcoBoost Transit gasoline. (ordered to our exact specifications)
Dynamat or RoadKill for sound dampening. (SMB recommends either one)
‘extreme weather insulation’ (for both heat and cold) (what SMB calls it)
single Captains chair behind the driver for our daughter. Ideally with swivel, if that is possible (tbd)
Dual slider doors. (if we can do that, with the bathroom where it is in attached image - ?)
No black tank. (Port a Potty instead)
Espar gasoline for hot air.
Solar panel(s) on the roof, controller
Aux. Battery Kit w/ Std Deep cycle 105 amp hr group 31 or 27 battery
Built in surge protector
Inverter - 2000 or 2,800 watts.
Awning over passenger slider.
bathroom (shower) 24” x 36” or 24” x 33” (SMW recommends either)
bifold door on shower - due to clearance issue.
Maxx fan in bathroom.
Espar gasoline for hot water [showers only] (unless there is a better option?)
No blank tank. (Port a Potty instead)
MOAB Elevator Bed for Transit - big brown rectangle in attached image.
This would give us flexibility if we wanted to haul stuff.
Our daughter would sleep on the floor, partially or wholly under the MOAB bed, on a mattress on the floor.
windows in the sliders, and an opening window in the shower stall, but no *big* windows rear of that.
small awning windows, up high, on either side.
ISOTHERM Cruise 130 Elegance (or similar) Refrigerator on passenger side.
For storage - MULE Overhead Storage Lockers ($400 each, flexible)
mounted to L Track. More flexible and much cheaper than cabinets.
Pedestal with sink + single burner propane burner, 2 gallon fresh jug below, 2 gallon grey below, manual hand pump for water, connection for disposable small propane talk below. Self contained.
In “Cabinet E” or “Galley” in the attached image.
Safari Straps to contain anything in the garage, below the MOAB bed.
Thanks for any and all thoughts
