    Put some wire-rim 20s and hydraulics on it, then slam it

    I rate Fords, however I can't help but think that's rather small as a camper. The SWB Transit isn't a huge footprint (5m long) however it has a lot more space inside.

    Anyway, good luck, will need some ingenuity to make it work I think !

    Very cool indeed!

    However, since I don't have the time nor the skills, I just decided to spend $19k to buy a brand new travel trailer instead!

    Hope things work out... for both you and me!

    So then I see your post today, and I actually SEARCH "van life" on YouTube.

    Holy shit, YouTube views pay people to do absolutely NOTHING. And I'm killing myself working.

    There are a lot of cute chicks living in vans for some reason, though.

    OK, back to slm's Transit C thread.

    Little bit of an update. I don't have a huge amount of work done yet. I stripped out what little interior the van had in the cargo area so I can start from total scratch. One big thing though is that I'm well on my way to getting the heater installed. This thing is absolute tits. It's designed to draw gasoline straight out of your vehicle's fuel tank and burn it for heat. They're primarily made in a diesel variant for the trucking industry. Last night I took the very frightening step of drilling holes through the floor to mount it. Fortunately it looks like I got them all in the right places and everything lines up. Next step is to drop down the fuel tank and install a tap into it to provide the fuel for this little guy. It's a ton of work, but the idea of having heat without having to mess around with hauling around propane bottles or dealing with some finicky portable heater was too good to pass up.

    They do! Like I said they mainly make a diesel one that's designed for semis to reduce idling. But they also make this gasoline variant of the same heater.
