When we decided to outfit a van, we thought it best to keep it like our life - simple, minimal, focused on the necessities. The back consists of just a wood bed platform with a 3” foam mattress. Underneath, we store our kitchen - a Coleman 2-burner stove/grill and a cooler - and everything else we need. There’s enough space between the front seats and the bed to sit in 2 floor chairs, and enough room between the front seats to fit Dane’s bed so he can ride shotgun too. We have to cook any and everything outside, and that’s why we got the van in the first place - to spend as much time as possible outdoors. When we’re ready to turn in, we don’t have to take down the kitchen table, or unfold a futon, and the bed is big enough to fit all 3 of us comfortably.
That’s it, and it’s perfect. Here’s to spending more weekends in Ole Betty in 2020✌🏼
