    not to hijack the thread ;) but i notice you can get 12v heating wire cable that would draw 15A. So you could run it 10+ hours off a 160ah battery.. maybe even add a pv panel..

    I would put a mini bulkhead cut from a sheet of ally across at halfway point just to top of wheel arch. Then a full sheet over and a hinged section to lift for the front and make a drawer that slides out for the back. Would then have a permanent flatbed for sleeping and stashing bedding or whatever in. Back drawer for tools maybe. Racking up one side.

    Saw how you lined yours. I am going to do similar this year and pack it in real tight then spray and put neoprene cloth and tuck into the edges. My foam is 15mm thick :)

    If you need anything for your fit out let me know.

    I've used Jablite insulation in mine, & used Foil tape to seal the joints. Still get condensation on the tape. But nothing major to worry about.

    Not sure that the condensation can ever be totally prevented but I'll keep insulating as much as I can. I'm altering the drawer this weekend...............

    Well after travelling around France for three weeks last year we decided that the rear cupboard, behind the drawer, was pretty useless. We decided that the drawer would be better suited if it was moved as far back as possible. In addition, another shelf, in line with the rear windows should be added - this would form the basis of a rear bed for the future.

    Phase 1 - move drawer back

    Phase 2 - make side panels (two weeks time)

    Phase 3 - make shelf (Easter time)

    Phase 4 (ten years away!!!!) - remove 2nd row seat and make bed

    The standard water container will need to be replaced by one that will fit between the drawer and shelf - anyone know of one?

    You could always try Barratt Tanks

    The guy will make you a tank to any design and shape you want and he's not too pricey
