Wondering if anyone out there has experience converting a chevy express 3500 (or similar) into a livable van (bed/s, sink, stove etc) while maintain a single or bench seat behind the driver seat. If so, Id love to see your layout. Having the rear seat really cuts into living space but we are going to be travelling with our 4 year old so the rear seat is mandatory. We are considering this as setup, with one of the raise/lower poptops. We have a bunch of ideas of how we'd lay it out but would love to see yours. Thanks.
