Opp side of the rear build where seats will be going when funds allow, plan is to sound deaden then carpet to allow me to have the radio at a normal level as very loud road noise at moment

Nice to see everything boxed in to save stuff flying about all over the place while driving.
Just a couple of questions though. Do you not find it a little awkward filling the water tank the way it's positioned?
Also with the genny, do you leave it in that position while running, and is it not a little awkward to refuel with the fuel tank being quite close to the roof??
Cheers

The tank is easy to fill as it's reachable from back of van and is only once a day, fuelling the generator is a little awkward but again it's only once a week so no issues, it's worth it to have it looking good to be honest, i came up with a filling line that hooks to top of van to fill tank to make it easier, my last generator didn't have tank on top but beside which I may go back to

I couldn't go without a tank unfortunately, i do a lot of schools/ businesses and remote site work for my customers so not always water etc so needs to be in van, I used to have a Merc Vito which was huge so had to get creative to get all the gear in the caddy, will update some pictures when she is finished, currently with sign writing guy so update outside pics tom Image
