Rear doors open.

The shower is in the rear left corner.

    Nicely done! Definitely made the space livable, and attractive, as well. And the fact that it is nearly stealth is also a bonus!

    Interesting, this may be one of the only van conversions I’ve seen with the bed in the front. Maybe so one can lounge with the door open and have a view? Toilet and shower at the back is a plus, and maybe that was the deciding factor.
    I frequently see these small wood stoves mounted high on the wall, there must be a good reason, but as heat rises, I would think having the unit lower would be better for heating.
    Overall, nicely done!

      I think it’s largely a space thing for the wood stoves. You can’t put anything above it without it being in danger, so by leaving space underneath you still get to use that space. But there could be another reason I’m not privy to!

        Yes, space is typically a major concern both in terms of safety and how much space the wood stove takes up and thus can’t be used for anything else, which can have a major impact in such a small space… But there’s at least 5 additional reasons…

        1) Ambiance, higher up makes it easier to always keep it in view and watch the fire…

        2) Radiant heat, wood stoves also give off radiant heat like the sun. Warming all exposed surfaces within line of sight of it in addition to the heat of convection it gives off to the air…

        3) They tend to be overkill for small spaces, wood stoves were originally designed for very inefficient, very drafty, homes with little to no insulation. So generate a lot of BTU’s… Even the Cubic Mini Cub this uses, which is the smaller of the two models in that series, is rated for up to a 200 Sq Ft space but a van is much smaller, typically 60-80 sq ft… Meaning it can easily overheat the space and having it near a window or door may be how it’s best used unless in extremely cold climates…

        4) Space below is often used to store pieces of wood, poker, etc. to keep the stove going without needing to go out or grab it from somewhere else… Mind, smaller stoves are higher maintenance and how you tend it can effect the intensity and longevity of the heat it outputs… So keeping everything nearby makes it more convenient… While at this size it usually won’t run more than a few hours at a time without someone to reload it, which means you’d usually have to restart it after a full nights rest…

        5) Smaller stoves also are harder to get hot enough to efficiently consume all materials, which means they’ll deal with more creosote build up that will have to be cleaned out more regularly and aren’t as efficient as larger, more powerful stoves…

    It’s absolutely fabulous. If I had the money I would be at their shop when the sun comes up.

    Well I would not have the wood burning stove. You could use a space heater if it gets cold. Nice job.

      Space heaters are one of the most inefficient forms of heat and use a lot of power for the heat they produce – and in a van with solar, power efficiency is important. Which leaves solid or liquid/gaseous fuel heat – wood stove, diesel heater, LPG furnace (or even LPG unvented heater, but then you have moisture & mold/mildew problems, instead).

    It looks nice but lacks storage for all the stuff you are using outdoor and you need to make the bed every day.
