Awesome Build. Im looking to get a maxi and do the same setup essentially for mountain biking and occasional stay over somewhere a bit further away..

The jetwasher ideas looks awesome also as you can mould it to the space you have in the van. I have a 12v mobi washer that i run of cigarette lighter but feel that your method is a bit more elegant.

I would be going for the maxi so wouldn't need to take the wheels off the bike and give me a bit more space but like the idea of putting the
tee nuts underneath to give me flexibility in future.

any chance of a link to the bits you used for the leisure battery ? any issues with that?

Cheers

Great set up this, planning something similar myself.
Do you have a link for the LED lights by any chance?
