My name is Chris from the SF Bay Area. I’ve been slowly researching and playing with the idea of building out my own van over the past few years. I finally found a good deal on a Ford Transit 148 high roof which I’m in the process of buying this week. I already have an EcoFlow Delta Pro battery system and some solar panels which i’ve used for camping in my smaller car here and there. A bit more about me, I’m a juggler and often travel around to events; I thought it’d be a good investment to have a van I can travel and lodge in, so I’d have enough space for my show stuff and could save $ on hotels. The van seems like it’d be especially useful for festivals and camping. Since I’m not planning to live in it full time, I’m hoping to make a modular build out at first, so no permanent cabinets or things but insulated inside and some removable things like simple bed/desk, composting toilet, popup table with induction stove, etc. I’m hoping to at first install some essential things like vent fan, and roof rack with a spot for starlink, solar panels, and maybe a ladder with a patio I could climb up on. I’ll try and post updates as the project continues, thanks for stopping by and reading!
