Appliances come down to personal preference. Are you a minimalist who doesn’t need anything aside from a few lights? Or are you going to deck out your van with a fridge, stove, heater, and all the accessories? In this section, we’ll cover a few of my personal favorite appliances, as well as other popular options recommended by the van community.

Make sure to buy your appliances before you start building cabinets!
