cheers

Mrs. cornfarmer has some cabinets/storage from her day job sitting in the garage, so we've got some options to try out. I think the water dispenser unit is going to be simplified more like the Catfish method - mount the tank somewhere, put the spigot back on, position the sink underneath (if at all). Next camping trip is in April so we've got some time to dick around with it grin

Got the van back after a long wait getting the intake manifold leak, etc. fixed, promptly went up the coast to Fort Bragg for some camping. Switched from the IKEA sink apparatus to just sticking the water tank on top of a crate, which seemed to work fine, if not better. Overthunk that one I guess.

Great pictures. You will figure out what works best for you in time. It's trial and error. Checking out other vans at a vannin or even online can lead to some good ideas too.

Operation: Van Storage Mk II kicked off with 3 of these shelve-y things I picked up for $10. Two of them fit pretty good with the couch-bed extended, and the shelves are easily moved around (so the left one cleared that dang vent sticking out of my floor). The 5 gallon water tank sits nicely on the right hand one. Still need to test fit the cubby storage boxes Mrs. Confarmer has, and find the best way to latch the left one to the right one (which will be anchored to the van wall). This still keeps things modular, as in I can take it all out easily if needed.

Mrs. cornfarmer and the pooch started a big eastward road trip, I had to work, but we met up in Idaho and cruised out to Montana for a few days. Lucky me got to go back to work today while she cruises down to Yellowstone and beyond....van's running like a champ.

Gorgeous scenery, and a sweet looking Dodge. Shame they don't see the beauty in it.

Been over a year since updating.....not much to report other than general maintenance/upkeep. But this summer we finally got the driver's door fixed, which has been cockeyed since we got it. Pain in the butt to open/close and seal right.

I'd gotten so used to entering/exiting from the passenger doors all these years. Doesn't look like much of a change, but a new hinge made all the difference in the world. It's the little things.......
