One other possibility is dolls! 1/6 scale (my daughter has one, but her doll scaled to her 5'2" height, not my 6'3"). Makes it handy if you have a table, dresser, etc. of that same scale. Oh, she is now 23. Still a handy scale!
Two by Four blocks of wood are 1.5" x 3.5". Double stacked gives me a quick kitchen galley of 18" deep x 42" tall Cutting those four boards all to 6" long showed my 3' long kitchen galley could be longer.
Sportsmobile DYO is a great tool. A pain in the rear to figure the tool out, but long body "LB" is what represents an Extended Length Ford. Prices are interesting to not, gives a good idea betweenDIY and Turnkey (not everyone has time nor skills for DIY, and I like their finish outs)
So taking my "doll cutouts" and messing with floor plan comes up with the attached diagram.
Now that I have the van, I'll do Cardboard Aided Design to mock up real sizes for my wife to understand. She needs a flush toilet (I'll use a canister style) and wants an indoor shower (quick rinse, lather, rinse). Both are fine with an extended length, but I'd prefer to keep everything open and have that in the back of the van. She loves this style floor plan. It doesn't matter what you think is perfect; it will change after a few road trips. So I plan to keep it very modular.
Note about composting toilets, great in a dry climate and I think would be fine for me. My wife had 3/4 of her colon removed so not the best choice for her. Canister toilets have a water compartment that rinses the bowl when you flush (which she really would like) but are known for the worst gawd awful smell when dumping. I don't have a normal sense of smell, so that doesn't bother me. Hence I suspect canister will work fine for me and no black water tank.
