ideas for van modifications

Amazingly enough there is a Yahoo! group just for people who have Expanda vans! I've been having a read through old posts and i've seen a few things that other travellers have done to make their Expandas more comfy including fitting washing machines and dryers in the wardrobe, dishwasher under the breaky bar, complete home entertainment systems in the cabinets etc!! and i think WOW! While that's not something we need i've also seen some other little alterations that look handy. Although i admit the washing machine in the wardrobe is tempting but i think we need the clothes space.
  • Removing the table leg and making it a drop-down table with a much smaller support.
  • Putting slideout baskets in the wardrobe.
  • Door mounted baskets inside the sink cabinet.
  • Stainless steel splashback behind the sink.
  • External PVC pipe storage containers for tent poles and bed flys etc.
  • Hanging racks in the shower cubicle.
  • An elbow on the shower to turn it sideways near the taps (have to see if that suits our model).
  • Towel airers mounted on the external body of the van.
  • Sludge hose carriers under the van (no idea how this works! but i'll pass it on to the sludge expert!)
  • Little wheels under the rear of the van to help with reversing up curbs.

a whole world of great little ideas to make life easier on the road.
