The first conversion I did, I fitted a shower WTF. 30 gallons of water to run it and a 30 gallon tank for waste, turned it into a wardrobe after 2 weeks.

Live and learn so don't mock the newbies. :o

The most useless I ever bought for the van I think was the insect fryer, you know one of those things you plug in and it sizzles insects when they land on it. Bought it, thinking, not a bad idea, put it in the van and then instantly felt sorry for the flying midges and moths that connected with it and immediately switched it off never to turn it on again lol.

Normally I'm heavily into upcycling but I just can't work out now what to do with this damn thing.  ;D

A much better use of space anyway!
