The entire back end of the van acts as a garage, storing gear, tools, necessities of the road and so much more.
The bed is fixed in place to allow for this type of storage maximization and meant I could save on flooring by only covering the living area.
This backspace stores:
an entire photo studio
but also an outdoor living set up
all my tools
five gallons of extra diesel (because we've had issues)
chains (because even if you don't end up needing them that day, you could get a ticket going through some mountain passes without them in the winter)
a mini shop vac and other laundry/cleaning supplies
all our various bags and backpacks
the array of hoses and plugs the van needs
an entire wall of shoes and is the hanging closet for clothes
And under the other half of the bed are all the house mechanics:
3 one-hundred amp hour lithium batteries
shower drain pump and all the water pipes and plumbing
6 gallon grey water tank
40 gallon fresh water tank
2.5 gallon hot water tank
air heater and all the pipes and mechanics for the radiant floor heat
on top of all that sits a wardrobe box to store all the clothes that don't need to hang in the back
Keeping with the theme of abundance in our tiny house on wheels, it really has it all!
