Each van is furnished with full wall paneling, ceiling paneling, and factory headliner. These panels are finished in a closed cell acoustic foam and a strong and durable interweave fabric of your choice. Material upgrades, like Sileather, are also available.

Lithium ion batteries are ideal for running heavy loads for long periods of time, have short charge times, have around 3X the lifespan of traditional batteries, high cycle efficiency, virtually shockproof and great for heavy use.
Depending on the type of battery, lithium ion batteries can provide 330 to 720 amp hours.
Batteries are built into custom closed boxes in the rear or installed underneath the chassis.
A power inverter changes DC power from a battery into conventional AC power that you can use to operate all kinds of devices. This option is a must if you plan on using items like an induction cooktop stove, microwave, computer charges, and more.
The inverter control panel also provides crucial information about your battery’s charge status and volts and amps coming in or out.
By adding a secondary alternator, you add a separate charging system dedicated only to the systems installed by Outside Van, while the factory alternator stays intact, charging only the chassis. Effectively doubling the available amperage of the vehicle, a secondary alternator is an outstanding choice for a fast charge.
Choose to add ZAMP Rooftop Solar Panels to charge your lights, fridge, and outlets while you’re on the road or off-grid. These panels can charge any kind of 12-volt battery that Outside Van installs.

And with options to install 90-watt, 115-watt, or 170-watt panels, you can achieve some serious power output. You can also incorporate solar panels into a Safari Roof Rack.

A grey water tank can also be added as an option.
