Thank you so much for that info Dan.

I just drove an hour to look at a Ford Transit - and just decided on the spot that although cute it wasn't going to be right for me.  At least not yet.   

If I go with the idea of an older class C then I don't have to buy it before next fall - or spend all summer trying to get my new home livable. 

I really know I'm going to appreciate this forum very much.

Jill  :)

Hi and thanks in advance for allowing me to ask many questions during the next 10 months.
I am a 59 year old woman who will be attempting (for the second time) to thru-hike the Appalachian trail in March of 2019.
I am so ready to live off grid for the 6 months I expect to take to hike from Georgia to Maine - I decided to extend that life OFF trail as well.  So my plan is to pay my last month's rent in February 2019.   I will hike the trail - and when I get off I'll resume life in my already paid for converted for full time living van.
Although I have a year... I've started my search for the vehicle now. 
My biggest problem is not knowing enough about vehicles to know what MAKE vehicle is the best when considering age (I definitely need used), mileage, vehicle maintenance issues, etc.
I'm just happy to have found THIS community and hope to learn a lot here.
