Where did you get the "pop out" sides? Could you post interior photo's? Decent option to get a few more inches on a east/west bed.
Noticed the 400 Ah Lithium Iron battery pack. Talk to the guys (two retired brothers) who run electric car parts. They seem to be straight shooters when it comes to LiFe batteries, State of Charge, and Life Cycles. Batteries are not cheap, but they seem much more honest about life cycle and what chargers to use. http://www.electriccarpartscompany.c...2V-400Ah-800Ah
Shower -- I'm still working on ideas/thoughts of a 24x 30, interior is 24 x 24-- part of the wall pushes out when needed for bathroom/shower. It would be a 12" deep cabinet for clothes, but then moves out over the bed when you want to shower. Portapotties doesn't need much room, Double drip edge, but allows a clothes closet portion to slide out over the bed. Same idea would work as you need more room around the torso compared to your legs. Expanded PVC or google "extruded hollow core PVC plastic" for all the trade names. I've seen a "mildew resistant" version. Lots of space, so needs to double to storage in some fashion. Oh, bottom of shower pan could be the bottom of a dog crate.
Shower -- don't overlook simple. A 25 gallon plastic bin is 27 x 18.75 x 16.88 -- add a drain, put up a temporary shower curtain, and you could shower in the open space of the van. I told my wife I could scrub her back, but she didn't go for that one! When done, you still have a nifty box to store stuff. I'm fine with showering every other day when on the road, so shower is needed for 15 minutes (rinse, lather, rinse) every 48 hours. Huge amount of room that is only needed less than 1% of the time. I'd rather have a jump seat, and "hideaway" porta-pottie.
Looking forward to seeing your build!
