If you are using your phone go to “Full Version” below and click on edit on your post or new posts. It is pretty straight forward to add photos. Much easier on a lap top. You can see your photos when attached. Don’t be surprised if they are sideways or upside down. I have trouble with vertical, as in how you hold your camera, photos. You can also create a photo gallery.

What was your previous van? Post some photos of it and give us a critic of both. We had a VW and enjoy our NV far more. Can’t figure out why anyone would buy a Westy now unless it is a cheap starter van, if you can find one that doesn’t cost $40k.
We know camping in the east and south typically means full hookups in state campgrounds. Do you have plans or have previously traveled west where hookups are few and often reserved/taken by big rigs. You mentioned mostly cooking outside your van, which is the way to go, but will you have a cooktop and refrigerator? Water?

I put a twin bed in on the side, a cabinet for a galley, my dc fridge and a thetford cassette toilet. No fan or roof ac..took a 2,000 mile trip and came back knowing what I needed. It was hotter in Florida than I thought for January. The s reen I made for the windows did not stop the no seeums...
I worked outside early in the morning to beat the Georgia heat and now I have worked when it was not raining and above 50°. This really is my first conversion..the GMC was just the basics. I hate dirty hotel rooms and this is the main reason I did the first one. I am happy so many people put of info, how to videos on utube.I spent 1000s of hours researching this project.

Nice gallery and nice build! For a first time you did great. I am sure you will find little tweaks to do as you use it. We built our home last year and have already found a few things we would do differently even though we researched over a year and tweaked plans before and during the build.
