    Personally think you should have left the divider in nothing to do with being an expert it's just that I used cargo vans myself and I find the divider a handy little idea. You mentioned about the wheels sticking out on your diesel truck have you considered fender flares? I don't know if that's a option where you live I know in some places it's how people get away with extended tires by putting fender flares on which skirts around the regulation extending the body over the wheel extension. Just something I thought I'd suggest. Personally don't know anything about insulating a van that's completely over my skill-set. Personally when I'm camping in the van I sleep in the front seat wrapped up in multiple layers of wool blankets. One of the scariest damn things I've ever seen was a homeless man 20 or so garbage bags in a sleeping bag. Quite a few times I've taken sleeping bags and blankets to a couple of homeless shelters and stopping to pick up what I thought was a empty sleeping bag sticking out between a pile of garbage bags only to realize it was a sleeping person inside was a pretty unnerving experience. Next to that was seeing a park bench Mommy. This was a homeless person wrapped up like an Egyptian mummy from head to toe in a thin white Hospital bed sheet during a God damn blizzard. I hope I never see that again. You think it's some sort of a snow sculpture on a park bench only to realize it's a thin blanket with a human being inside. Hopefully the van works out for Linda. I know you guys mean it as a running gag calling her homeless. They've got some fancy name for people that live full-time in vans to avoid paying rent a lot of them camp out at Walmart parking lots.

    Solar panels have wattage rating but thats lost during the conversion in the inverter. Also in the north west region we are low on the sun scale unless it's very sunny more than here in Michigan. Mono crystalline panels are one of the best. Viltage on the panel is also an option. Are you using reserve power storage? Are you installing electrical panel with Breakers & a 30 or 60 amp plug when at a RV park? With all the weight added for all your assistant wants will require a leaf spring addition. Just saying.

    One day in the lab at work I noticed a new gel-filled wrist support for when using the computer mouse. It felt really nice and was extremely comfortable. It was a mystery as to who brought it in. Nobody could/would admit to donating it to the lab computer. After examining it closely I found a part number and serial number etched into it. Upon Googling the part number, I discovered it was a breast implant!

    In case you haven't taught about it, if it's going to be a mostly of grid van it's better to run as much as possible on DC. Converting dc to ac is not that efficient or cheap. Like the fridge and stuff. And if you're going with ac it is easier to run some dc cables now before the walls go up.
