    Hi, Jonsobi.
    Very inspired by your messages here on this forum. I'm just outside Toronto.
    I was on the hunt for your exact van (t150, 130 wheelbase, cargo) but used. Turns out my insurance company wants nothing to do with a cargo van that was commercial in its prior life, so now I'm on the hunt for a passenger van. Still t150, 130 wheelbase.
    How difficult would it be, do you think, to do a very mild conversion of a passenger Transit for stealth camping and happy sleeps for one?
