Gung Ho newbie with minimalism in mind

My brother in law (an avid RVer) said the two main things in a camper or RV are seating and storage...

I'm trying to create a minimalist 64 tradewind and then a 63 sovereign...

So far my ideas include a sink, fridge, a two burner cooktop, lots of seating and storage, 40" or larger screens in each, very proper sound system, coffee pot, microwave, pint sized propane grill for outdoor bbqing, a proper bath with toilet and vanity and a "room shower (water sealed floor plumbed into the gray tank) with multiple heads... and instead of beds--running about 10-15 feet of "sofa" around the left/street side... (geared towards tailgating and close friend camping).

Not thinking of the least amount of work...just the cleanest appearance--lots of "open" space, and an uncomplicated, unobstructed floorplan...

any ideas?

Sounds like a modern Hugh Hefner man cave with all the modern appliances.....and a multiple head shower in a trailer? That will fill up the gray water tank in proper good time.

I am not sure where a large flat screen TV and microwave fits in with minimalist design. Or how it fits with the vintage trailer asthethic.

but as many will soon tell you..you can do whatever you want.

I would say the most important things to have in an rv is less weight and durability along with a comfortable floorplan for your needs.

but thats me.
