The day everyone has been waiting for! I am selling the van now that it is complete. The miles are very low and everything in the camper has been field tested and in excellent working order. This van is amazing and must be seen to be appreciated. It packs a huge punch in it’s ability to provide all the comforts of home without needing to be “plugged in”.
First, let’s talk about the vehicle. This 2018 Ford transit was purchased as an empty cargo van in Mount Vernon Washington. The van had 61 miles on it, and has a lifetime warranty provided by the dealer – Blade Chevrolet.
The van is rear wheel drive and has 13,000 miles. It is a one-ton (F-350) Powerstroke diesel. Factory installed towing package means it’s built to tow almost anything. Pretty basic package, but it has A/C and cruise control. Tilt steering wheel, power mirrors, automatic transmission with “traction control system”.
Next, lets list the features of the campervan.

And finally, the Lagun swivel table ties everything together. The van has surprising amounts of room given that it is the 144″ platform. Additionally, a small adult can sleep in the garage which feels like a separate room when a curtain is put up. The van is also very adept at urban stealth camping. When all window shades are up, absolutely no light escapes, thus it appears no one is in the van. And, the nice thing about the large sun roof is that it allows ample sunlight in the van when in blackout mode. This is a very nice feature when spending the night in town or a busy campground.
