There are a few standouts in this attractive Ford Transit conversion but the two best are the loft bed for the couple's daughter and robust and versatile slide out deck from the under-bed garage. If you're spending every day in your vehicle, you might as well make it a rewarding and multipurpose place to be.

We made sure to cover every square inch possible with reflectix first, and R19 anywhere else we could.
We have some storage boxes that double as stairs to our daughter's loft bed. Then storage on a pull-out deck under the main bed.
Sink inset into custom bench.
Biolite camping stove
We have a pull-out cutting board to add extra counter space as well as a built-in coffee maker
Our bed is across the van and we have a loft bed for our daughter above it.
Novel use of space and uniquely recognisable as well!
5" memory foam from Lucid Mattress
2x 100w solar panels that can be set up beside the van
One of the most nerve-racking experiences during the build out was cutting out the 14"x14" hole in the roof of our brand new van.
Biolite camping stove that converts heat into stored energy
We have a mobile studio setup so we can record music on the road and we connect to hotspots while traveling.
Under shelving lights plus fairy lights on the ceiling.
A 14' long roof rack plus Thule roof pod
We have a board rack added to our roof rack that can carry our stand-up paddle board.
We have a slide-out deck at the rear of the van. It supports 350lb fully extended! We also just received three TRONO chairs that are stored in small bags but inflate to huge, comfortable seats. They've been an amazing solution for outdoor seating.
This is surely an idea that would intrigue every converter. A lounge deck. Storage access. Star-gazing platform. Dining table. Wow!
