Chosen for versatile interior space. The same basic layout as our previous two hightop panel van conversions, but with more space and storage:

daytime twin bench / twin dinette / one bench + one dinette;
nighttime single beds or large transverse double

Windbreaks (when we use them) stow in the cab, under the false floor. Outdoor chairs and a folding bike travel in the washroom, and live in Lulu (aka "the shed") on site - a small tent sold as a toilet tent.

Other features:
Tall (i.e. just about high enough for knee length coats) wardrobe.
Two ring hob, grill and oven.
Lots of storage - a mix of drawers and cupboards, overhead lockers, over cab storage (and/or kids' bed) and space under seats.

The home made small "coffee" table (furthest away) was simply a standard Fiamma-type table mount fitted to a deep kitchen drawer front (which I think we got from B&Q, but any suitable small door / drawer front would do the job). With hindsight, I'd probably have offset the mounting a bit. And maybe I'll get around to changing it one day.

We've also added an additional (lift-out) hanging rail in the washroom for wet coats, etc. It's a standard oval profile bathroom rail with wall mounts from B&Q, cut to length.
