It’s the perfect size, small exterior but well laid out interior that gives you the feeling you’re in a bigger van… a giant dining area (seats 4-6) with a removable walkway cushion, it converts to a queen bed, there is storage in the benches and another bed up top. It’s very nimble, has a high clearance underneath, and almost makes me forget it’s not a 4x4.

THE INSULATION Kilmat sound deadener, havelock wool insulation. Thermal breaks to make sure the hot or cold doesn't pass through to the interior. Room darkening "linen" curtains for front of cab and passenger sliding door.
THE SUSPENSION Sumo springs: Helps to create a smoother ride, one that doesn't sway as much in the wind. They are a progressive spring with a soft initial engagement. As more weight is added, the harder the sumo springs get and the more they push back. Makes the OEM crosswind assist perform as it was originally intended.

Blue Sea waterproof DC breakers on side of passenger seat. 325 watts monocrystalline solar panels, bolted into OEM roof rails.
