Cool DIY Camper / Daily Driver ...Which model?

Hello. This is my first post to the forum.
I had a handful of questions I would like opinions on. I am on the fence with trading in my daily driver (crosstrek) and getting a Transit.

60% daily city driver (Los Angeles)
40% camping, surfing , bicycles, hitting the mountains (husky owner) some snow, travel through all the states

Myself the lady and 1 dog

Looking at a super DIY camper set up that can easily be taken down when needed to haul items.

Items I am thinking of that I would like to have.

Insulation and wood paneling (Dig the cabin vibe)
Bed (Maybe fold up into couch)
Maybe an inverter for Vitamix Possibly a mini fridge down the line.
Solar panels
Install air vent
Eventually rotating driver and passenger seat if possible
Some add on storage here and there

1. 3.5 Eco with standard axle config. or Diesel?

2. med roof/short or high roof/long ?

3.When ordering what options to go with and what to skip? (safer than sorry)

4. passenger sliding door window with back window? (privacy glass)

5. back up sensors / Camera ?

Anything that comes to your guys mind I am all ears.

Lotta personal preference comes to play in base vehicle selection. Suggest you look through other members' project threads to see what may make sense to you:

Transit 250 Cargo MR LWB 3.5L w/3.31
