There is no space for recliners in a 20, the front bed space is only 48" wide and the water heater is under a dinette seat. I tried to figure something out when we had ours. You can lounge on the bed with pillows but we couldn't get comfortable with that either.

I suspect if we were younger we could drop down the dinette into the bed position and lounge there, but not these days. Don't disregard the 19 and 20 on these comments, they are great travelers and vacation Airstreams, tow with a range of SUV's capable of 5,000 lb trailers.

Peabrain, you asked about an extra fridge. I'd look at Engel, ARB, or Dometic in their 12v portables. They come in several sizes and are 12v/110v and have very low amp draw. Engel has been around the longest and is used extensively in "adventure" expedition vehicles. They are chest type and not upright, so they are more efficient that way as well.

Good luck in your decision!

So to summarize:

Get an extra fridge
Figure out a comfy place to sit

Anything else?

If you're boondocking, you'll probably want to carry extra H2O in the van. Maybe a portapotty. If you're van is set up similar to a Sportsmobile, your probably already set up and ready.
Of course the usual AS power improvements, ie upgrade to 3 stage converter/charger so you don't kill batteries. Convert any incandescent lights to LED. Dual 6v AGM batteries. Maybe portable solar so you can have it usable on either the van, or the AS. An extra battery in the van with isolator to run the Engel. Tire chocks/blocks. Shovel. Spare tools. Jack with plywood base that will work on AS to change tires. Lug wrench to fit AS. Tire plug kit, portable 12v compressor. Sand ladders. 50 amp adapter. Water hose. Volt/ohm meter.

Oh and a winning lottery ticket😄

Then relax and enjoy life.
