not a skoolie

I got this chevy g30 diesel van last July and I'm pretty excited about the conversion so far. I have a long way to go, but she's super liveable and I'm doing the conversion in stages to make sure I don't jump the gun on decisions.

The box is 10' by 6'7" and the ceiling height is around 6'
She gets about 15 mpg and other than some starting issues at the beginning is doing well.

Blue Bear was an old cop surveillance van, so I bought her with only 35,000 miles and have driven her to san francisco and back.

My friend custom build a wood stove, which we just installed (big step).

have a look!

Be sure to post lot's of pics.

I like it when people build their own stoves.
