I’m taking delivery of my Sprinter photography adventure van on August 5th in Reno, from thence before any upfitting it will get a trial run stubbed out with simple table and chair, bed platform, etc.
The main problem will be power for the computer gear; I may have to temporarily pop the hood and run things off the auxiliary battery* (basic power inverter with alligator clips), since the Lithionics 5120 Wh battery won’t go in for 2 weeks or so. Also I don't think I can take the iMac as the computer, as the power consumption may be too high for the auxiliary battery, so I’ll have to use the laptop this go-round trial run.'
* See “X27 Additional Battery Package $380” on the overview page.
Phase 1 upfitting to follow in mid to late August: Lithionics 5120 Wh battery, Xantrex / Schneider Electric Freedom 815-3012 SW 3000 watt inverter/charger, side and rear and rear door windows, marine grade flooring, roof fan, skid plates, Cooper Discovery AT/3 235/85R16 E-rated tires (11 ply equivalent).
Phase 2 will be late November; I want to give myself a few months of field use before I finalize the final built-in desk shape and other details.
