"FURNISHING" YOUR VEHICLE
#1
So are there furnishings you moved into or use in your vehicle that were built for S&Bs or for other purposes?

I don't have the skills to custom build anything except maybe a bed platform.........that might be pushing it.
I do seem to have a talent for re-purposing things thus saving money. Also my roadside shopping amazes me in what others put out on the curb that are in good shape. I have stocked up on many types of wood/lumber and don't expect to buy much or maybe none at all. Also folding chairs, tables, containers and even some vintage and antique pieces including quilts.  I nearly forgot my military issue down<<<<{did I spell that right} mummy sleeping bag and its cover.

I know I'll be using some plastic totes and plastic dressers.  I have some wooden things like a dry sink that is excellent storage with 1 drawer and 2 doors underneath it for storage, it has a nice flat top with 2 small shelves for oil lamps.  I'm thinking it's a perfect size for a kitchen in the Safari and should fit right behind the drivers seat in front of a nearly useless window and facing the side slider door. 

 I'll have to be careful of weight placement of course.  I really can't plan anything until the van is empty so I can see what space I'll have to work with.  Maybe it'll quit raining by JULY?

It sounds to me like you have a plan. Real estate in any vehicle is by the cubic inch so it will be like a giant puzzle. You might be able to use some graph paper and a tape measure. Just remember nothing in a vehicle is square.

I built my bed. Other major pieces were not made for mobile use but have been reinforced with corner braces and Gorilla glue where the panels meet. Then mounted to the floor and wall.
Quicker and cheaper for me doing it this way

The window will provide light to the cooktop and if it's a slider with a screen you can have intake/exhaust ventilation with a 12v fan.
