2017 GMC Savana Cargo Van
4.8 L V8 6 speed auto transmission 3.42 rear end
PS, PB cruse control, PW and locks

I installed a trailer tow package
I converted the van into a camper van with a port a potty closet, a double bed at the rear, two cabinets with a drop leaf on the cabinet by the sliding door and with lots of storage under the bed.
I insulated and paneled and add 5 LED lights . Two Maxxfans .
I wired up a extra battery and a vent system for the battery and a fuse box for the fans and lights.
I installed a simple 110 ac setup to run a small elect heater and a battery charger for the battery when camped with electric at a campground.

The van will be used for one or two days trips and will be use to tow our 17’ Casita trailer for longer trips

Your layout is well done and looks much more professional than mine. Most of my modifications are done with the idea that I can pull everything out, put the passenger seats back in (mine was originally a passenger van) and there would be no holes left in the van. I used the floor seat mounting brackets to anchor my kitchen unit and bed frome. And that is exactly what I did when I purchased my newer 2018 model and sold my old 2001 LT passenger van. In fact, I advertised the 2001 in the morning and by supper it was sold,

Keep posting your modifications. I love to look at what others have done.

Thanks for the nice words! not professional but home done and I would do something different. The weather is going to be nice for a few days so I will wash the van and than take a picture of my just installed running boards.
