1986 Grumman Olson Step van on Chevy P30 chassis. Cummins 4BT 3.9L four cylinder diesel engine.
Walls and floor well insulated with rigid foam. We paneled the interior with FRP. New vinyl floor.
The rear was turned into a bed area with storage and “utility” space below. This space houses new water tank, new water pump, new pex plumbing, new tankless propane water heater, and electrical components.
There are also new kitchen cabinets, sink, hand pump and hot and cold pressurized water at sink, and a new two burner propane cook top. Wheel wells are hidden by kitchen cabinets on one side and the bathroom with shower and porta potty on the other.
For a refrigerator I went with a small chest freezer with Johnson Controls thermostat to keep temperature in “refrigerator” range rather than “freezer” temperature. This makes for a very efficient unit.
Reclining passenger seat on a swivel pedestal has been added (not new).

Six new 8R19.5 tires, installed 8/13/19
