This custom-built van 2017 Promaster High Roof van was a full-time home as I hit the road in April 2019 to tour the US national parks, see a bit of Canada and the western coast. It was built when I was working with the Discovery channel and has some great features, like 500 watts of solar, 3 ways to charge the 2 lithium batteries, a TV, eco-friendly lambswool insulation and a cool shiplap design.
With this movement having many looking for a pre-built over building one of their own, I wanted to make sure that they have all information available, so get ready for info overload. I'm a NY Italian girl with a degree in applied mathematics who grew up in a family who owned construction companies (not concrete - lol) . My career is as a Technology Management Consultant. I'm also an abstract painter. I utilized all these skills as well as my female insight for the build, evidenced by the calculation of where to place the fan in order to fit 5 solar panels on the roof, additional electric outlets, layout, finish details like the shiplap, storage capacity, location and organizational space and accessibility.
