  • Hi Callie. I’m am 57 yrs old and just getting started. I just purchased a 1999 gmc Savanah. I have 100 watt solar panel kit way bigger than yours :(. I love your van set up. I am good with tools and can build but how did you learn to do all that other stuff? Lol. The switches and fuses and….WAAAA!!! I have no help. Where do I start? Beyond the wood part I am lost. My van is nice inside so first I gotta make myself gutt it because of course it is not what I need for living in. Was yours already an “empty canvas”? Thank you for any help
