Discovering a World of Adventure
Built in 2020, Grace is a van designed for a customer with two loyal pups and a penchant for adventure. The layout allows the whole crew to comfortably stretch out while exploring the country. The Outside Van engineering and production teams designed and built a folding, removable, lightweight bench behind the driver’s seat that’s provides a place to relax during the day, but folds up out of the way when more floor space is needed. The small seat to the left of the slider provides another comfy area to sit, but also discretely houses a porta potti and removable shower pan below. When its time to shower, the pan is simply removed, placed in the drain area, and the shower curtain is attached to hooks on the l-track above. The shower hose is conveniently located to the right of the galley. With two galleys directly facing each other, our customer is able to spread out while making a meal, using the stacked fridge/freezer, induction cooktop, and deep stainless sink, plus tons of countertop area. And to keep the van free of bugs on a cool summer night, a Rolef bug screen has been installed around the slider door.
At the heart of this build is an impressive lithium ion battery system, with three batteries totaling 1080 amp hours. A 2500 watt inverter has been installed, as well as a secondary alternator, which directly charges these house batteries quickly and efficiently. This means the ProAir 20,000 BTU aftermarket roof top air conditioner can run off-grid for hours on end without a worry, allowing our customer to camp in any summer conditions!
