I believe you. They say a van is never fully completed, theres always something to be added. Even ready built Motorhome owners are not an exception. I watched a few Gadget John episodes and he seems to buy a van then change just about everything. But I suppose that’s the fun, it’s more than just a holiday home on wheels.

Yes mine included all terrain tyres, a bike rack and maybe one of those roof mounted solar showers as I do not have an indoor shower.

Fit the biggest you have room for as you will never have too much on a van roof JMHO (if you have the free payload available )

Fit the biggest you can, panels are rated with the the sun perfectly overhead and Sahara type sun. The greater the angle from vertical the lower the efficiency. The UK is quite high up and I'm guessing the panels will be flat, so that reduces the efficiency and even in summer at noon the sun isn't overhead. I've got 300w and rarely see above 150w, in winter sometimes its nothing.
