These are some of the things that were part of the build or are just things I have in the van. I do not recommend all of them though so hover over each picture to read what I have today about each item before looking into purchasing it yourself if you're interested!

Renogy 300 Watt 12V Solar Starter Kit + Charge controller

 I have a 300 watt solar setup on my roof and the kit i purchased comes with a PWM 30 amp charge controller. So far everything has worked out just fine, the panels even survived a pretty strong hailstorm. I have heard that it's MPPT controllers are more efficient than PWM but thats just what came with the kit and I have had any problems. Also I believe I got the mono crystalline panels although i could be wrong there.

Fan-Tastic Vent 1250

 I have a simple fan that just blows air in and out. I honestly don't feel like the fan blowing air into the van is very good but I've used it blowing air out when cooking which my propane camping stove and it works great for that as far as I can tell. It's also a bit loud so not something I'm gonna have going at 9 pm in a Walmart parking lot.

6 Dream Lighting LED Lights

 These lights are super bright when it's night and I have all my window covers up but I really like the color they are... and don't have much else to say on them cuz they're just lights.

Kingston Stainless Steel Sink

 One thing I remember a lot of van lifers saying before I started my build was that they regretted not getting a bigger sink so I got one that I though was pretty good size and it definitely is a perfect size for my kitchen area.

6" Memory Foam Twin Mattress

 I actually find this mattress to be more comfortable than the one I previously slept on so I totally recommend this to anyone. It just barely fits in my van but it works!

Unfinished Wood Crate

 I bought the largest size of this crate and use it to store my non-refrigerated food.

5 gallon Solar Shower

 I haven't used this yet but I got it just in case. It's something where you can fill it up with water and put it up on your roof, wait for the sun to heat it up, then give your self a quick shower. It's probably the kind of thing I'd only use at a campground or beach. Will update when/if I do use it.

High Sierra Pathway 60L

 I got this backpack because I figured it'll be definitely big enough for doing some longer hikes but also in the future if I ever do backpacking, I might be able to use it for that too!

Ozeri 8" Stone Earth Frying Pan

 My mom told me I should get good pans + knives because they can last for a while so while they're kinda spendy, I think they're well worth it  The lid I got to go with it can be found  here .

Insignia Vehicle Phone Mount

 I got this cuz I figured its way safer to use google maps when the phone is more eye level- its nice that it comes with both a window suction mount and one for an air vent because in most states I'm going through, it's either illegal to have anything suctioned on your window or restricted.

Renogy 500 Watt 12V Pure-Sine Wave Inverter

 The inverter I use is pretty small.. I often see people have 2000 watt inverters and i was worried at first that it wouldn't be enough but so far so good. The only thing I'm powering full time with it is my fridge, and then occasionally charging electronics and i plug in my carbon monoxide detector only when cooking in the van.

Elechomes Clip-on USB Fan

 This is something I'm really glad I bought because when its a bit hot at night, I can just have it blowing on my face for a bit then turn it off before I fall asleep. And i can just charge it while I drive by putting it into one of those USB cigarette outlet things.

Coleman Classic Propane Stove

 This is a really nice stove and it's a pretty good price too. I've only used it a few times as of writing this but it's been nice to cook on both in and out of the van and is a good size too for such a small area.

Houzer Sink Strainer

 I wasn't smart and didn't do any research on drains so I had to go to an RV store and purchase an extra part. Turns out RV/van drains need to be a bit different because the plumbing is different. This drain comes apart into 3 piece and I was able to use 2 of the pieces but I had to get  this part  for where it would connect to the tube into the grey water jug and just screw that onto the bottom of this drain.

BuLuTu Duvet Cover

 I really love the feel that this gives the van. Don't have much else to say about it.

Utility Storage Bin

 I have 3 of these under my bed in the back which I store a bunch of random things in that I don't use as often- they're nice because they're wayy less expensive than the other crates I got haha.

Female Urinal

 This I have not used and hope not to use but I got it for emergencies. Luckily I am very skilled in holding my pee for a long time so I think I'll be good for the most part.

Embark Lightweight Hammock

 I'm really glad I got a hammock because it's so nice to be able to just hang out in one and read or do whatever. It's also nice because the sides are long enough that you can fold yourself up into a little cocoon in it.

Utopia 2 Quart Saucepan

 This is a saucepan. It makes good rice.

ROLA Hitch mount Bike rack

 This is the bike mount I have- it came a bit loose within the first 2 weeks and now wobbles back and worth a tiny bit but I think thats because I unintentionally went on a really bumpy gravel road and you're not suppose to do that. If you're gonna go on a bumpy gravel road it says you should do it intentionally.

AGM Deep Cycle 12V 125 AH Battery

 Like the panels and inverter, the battery has stored enough energy to last me some cloudy days so far. I chose this battery over others because of the fact that it doesn't have any free roaming fluids like lead acid batteries do, which can be dangerous. I think.

Dometic CFX-35us Fridge

 Although it was expensive for a such a small little fridge, I've found it's just the right size for what I need and since it's very energy efficient, it can run 24 hours a day just fine. The only problem I've had is that a little bit of water sits in the bottom after a few days which I have to wipe out but other than that I love it.

Valterra Hand Pump Faucet

 I would not recommend this faucet due to the fact that less than 2 weeks after installing it, it started leaking out of where the hand pump meets the main part of the faucet and it leaks a lot- so much so that I now am leaving it completely unscrewed from the counter and have to tip it upside down into the sink to get the water out of the faucet (not the tube, but the actual faucet part) so that it doesn't leak all over or saturate an entire wash cloth that I put where it leaks. While I'm sure this doesn't happen for everyone, I have seen multiple other people saying the same thing happened with theirs so I would go with a different, probably more expensive one with less bad reviews if I were to do it again.

Travelwise Packing Cubes

 I have found packing cubes to be a life saver when it comes to storing clothes and other stuff in the van. It's way easier than shuffling though lose clothes in a crate.

First Aid Kit

 A neighbor got this for me as a gift- you always wanna make sure you've got some first aid supplies around!

Rainleaf Microfiber Towel

 I have 2 of these microfiber towels that I take with me when showering a Planet Fitness and also use when giving myself a little bath in the van. They're great because they're really small and they dry really quickly.

Cangshan 3-Piece Knife Set

 These knives were spendy but they're good quality so hopefully I'll be able to use them for a long time.. unless I have to use them to stab someone who's trying to break in and murder me ya know.

Carbon Monoxide Detector

 A carbon monoxide detector is important if you're cooking in the van with propane- I only plug it in when cooking cuz otherwise I don't see the point.
