There is a dinette area that provides good space for sitting, and 4 people can sit there easily. These models don’t have wardrobe closets like in K and KL models. K and KL models have easy access to beds, and it’s easy to get out of them too.

Both the K and KL model of this van has twin beds as standard, and they are equipped with a good size closet for storing extra things. There is a wardrobe with drawers, and they have a double bed conversion feature too. The problem is that when the conversion happens, it may be a bit hard to get to the bathroom through the bed.

Other than these features, the K and KL models also give two of the flip-up counter-tops that provide a good area for keeping your food and accessories like a laptop. But one more thing to understand about K and KL models is that they are set up to legally carry only two passengers at the front that includes the driver and rider.

For the G models, the dinette is set at the front of the cabin, along with the seating. There is a great width space for the bench spaces so that people can sit easily in that. It does have a murphy bed for 2 people to sleep comfortably, but a little bit of problem with that bed is the foot space and room for going to the bathroom.

The bed is foldable, and users can fold it up, and it allows additional storage space to place any bags and luggage or toys and bikes of your kids. There is an extension unit with a slide-out for the dinette, making suitable space for a small family.

The pantry of 59G is narrow, and it has narrow closets with a vertical style storage place to put your accessories and items. There is also an extension added for the kitchen counter to make it easier to cook food, along with a refrigerator for cooling having a separate freezer.

For K models, there is a layout for Twin beds on both sides with a flex bed. There Is a wet bath and wardrobe at the end of the van that has double doors to access from outside. From the bedroom, it has access through a sliding door. The kitchen area is next to the bedroom, having a refrigerator below the counter along with an adjustable table mount and a pull-out extension for keeping things.
