FNG - Checking in!!
« on: August 16, 2017, 07:05:36 PM »
We have been the full gamut of RV's. Started years ago with a Pop-Up. I miss that rig. Then progressed to a 26 ft bumper pull. It was a higher end unit w/ lots of upgrades. Then to a 37-ft Class A pusher. Sold the coach last week. It just didn't get used. Too darn big and too much of a PITA to go anywhere. During the sale process discussion brought us to the realization that we are Weekend Warriors. We like short term camping and adventures. We looked at many Class B rigs. But, never quite found what were looking for at a price we are willing to pay. So we bought a 2008 Ford extended passenger van, with a topper. It was a personal handicap van, in it's previous life.

Our intent is to build it in a modular design. Everything will be easily removable, so the use can change. It's going to be fun to build. And even more to play with.
Be well. Have fun.

What a great looking van!  Window vans make so much better campers than cargo vans do, and with an already finished interior, they can save you a fortune from having to start from scratch only to wind up with an inferior interior.

Keeping everything modular rather than built in is also a very wise choice.  I learned that the hard way... 

Best wishes with your conversion, and keep us posted!
