    I've been reading old forum discussions on optimal insulation methods. I decided to put together a quasi-1D thermal analysis of the roof/ceiling to allow some sensitivity studies (e.g. XPS vs Thinsulate) and evaluation of where the major losses are (ribs vs bulk roof). The primary intent of...

    Hi, I am in the process of meeting the owners of a 2016 Ford Transit 3500 Ecoboost with 135k miles. The van is already fully converted, and I only plan on driving between 7-10k a year. They are asking $39,900. I am going to take the van to a local dealership to get inspected before buying...

    Over the last few days I flip-flopped about what to do. I was sure I'll go with Transit, then I visited couple of Mercedes dealers and saw a beautiful Mercedes with 10 inch nav screen, then someone bought it. Later I test drove Mercedes and it remained me of old Żuk van I drove in Poland in the...

    I am about to order a van for a base to build a campervan. I was ready to go with Transit, until I configured it - when I added everything I want it came to a whooping 50K. Then I decided to check a Sprinter. To my surprise Mercedes with gas engine was less expensive (cheaper somehow does not...

    Hoping for this thread to eventually fill with brilliant ideas to help produce a viable electric Transit Campervan. I do expect some ev haters and naysayers, but hope any negative posts will lead to constructive suggestions aimed at overcoming the obstacles. I am looking for input from people...

    We've been on the road fulltime now for 5 months and are still really happy with our Murphy bed. It's a simple design that only uses 2 piano hinges and plywood leaves. Thought I'd share, as I know that lots of bed questions come up here.

    Hello! Looking to insulate my Ford Transit floor for Vanlife. It came with the factory felt and rubber mat that fits perfectly to the floor. I’m wondering if anyone has used this for insulation before? Was thinking of just adding subfloor on top and then vinyl floor on that. Hoping to save some...

    I'm shopping for a Cargo Van for a Camper Van Conversion. I know you can't order Ford's nice, 10-way power leather seats in a Cargo Van and also get swivels (so you have to bump down to the 4-way manual cloth seats). But has anyone noticed that the: Programmable Battery Guard/Enhanced Cut-off...
