Wow that accordian style tailpiece is swaaaeeet Welp that one thing you could throw away if you need more space.
Its tough sometimes to work out of a standard size truck and carry it all. You just can't. I get the best information I can about the call over the phone and pick up the toilet, water heater, disposals,etc., and save all that cumbersome stuff from riding around with me all day when not needed.
Picked this up last december for a very nice price brand new 2008 e450, 12ft kuv body, 6ft tall rear doors. Very nice space and shelfs inside. Once the weather breaks it will be tagged up. Covred in snow now but here is the dealers shot.

Thats a swaaaeeet work truck JRS. Good choice.
I am the last person that should be making recommendations on how to keep a cleaner truck
Between the camera reels, monitor and drum machine you've given up at least a 1/3rd of your floor space. You need to downsize my man. Purge the things that inhibit you. Think Feng Shui
You are probably married to the drum machine but unless you have a Sprinter it's not really practical. You've heard it a hundred time before but here it is again: K-60 and 2 baskets of cable tuck nicley in the corner out of the way. If you are like me, the drain machine is only used 2 or 3 times a week anyways. If it's more than that, keep the drum and shrink the camera equipment.
I keep 3 cameras and monitors on the truck. Together they take up less space than your big reel. Drain machines and cameras go hand-in-hand. You shouldn't have to choose one or the other because of floor space.
If I had my way I would keep at least a 10 gallon shop vac on the truck but really a 3 gallon one works just as good and takes up WAY less space. Because they are round and all the attachments are exterior they don't store very well in a van. I use the Ridgid toolcase vacuum. Short, squatty and stacks well.
Apprentices are for keeping your truck clean
i also have 4 supply houses within a few miles of the shop and my house.
use to stock 20 water heaters when prices were good. now it's 1 for an emergency.
specialty equipment is at the shop when needed.
phoebe it is
