This is my simple camper van conversion that I built on a new Ford Transit van. The build is simple and lightweight, designed for off-grid and maintains a stealth appearance of looking just like the regular van from the outside. It took a few weeks to build (after many weeks of research to narrow down what options to special order on the van, what size van to order, and how to build it out). I decided to go with a lightweight build so I wouldn’t have a lot of power requirements and could run everything off the dual heavy duty batteries that I ordered with the van. To read a lot of details about the considerations why I chose this van, all the options, and to build it like this, please read this article on my website:

UPDATE 2019.03.12: i sold the empty van today. the whole build structure is available for sale, or i can sell parts separately like the water pump, water tank, rv-type filling hatch, sink + countertop, shelf, storage cabinet, bath tub with slats (that can hold compost toilet), curtains, hanging closet, etc. i’ve already sold the refrigerator and compost toilet.

in this (very) long article, i’ll explore why i chose a van for travel rather than another type of camper or rv, and go into the details of the various options i chose that i felt would be best for a campervan when i special ordered a custom built van. i’ll also go into details about the build and decisions i made there to keep things simple and lightweight. i compare my experiences with the van to the previous truck [...]
