Great Little Mini-Van





I am a widow in my seventies and built this design for my Ford Transit Connect. I have taken six trips in it this summer and it has been wonderful.

I camperized my 2011 TC van too - am in my 70's now NEW
by: Barb

I'm sorry I only gave you 4 stars. Your van looks so colourful but I would have liked to have seen more detail. I camperized my 2011 Transit Connect too but I made it all removable. It can remove the bed & storage below in 1/2 hr to make it multi-functional or it can return to it's original state in about 45 min. I use a electronic cooler (12V plug in), a portable 1 burner dual fuel stove and my mini version of a porta-pottie. I did not convert to propane, running water hookups etc b/c they take up too much room although I would like to put in a solar panel & battery to run the cooler but I have to keep my exterior roof clearance the same so I can get into the parking garage.

Bike
by: Kay

I am the owner of this van. Just wanted to point out why I designed it this way. I love biking rail-trails and my bike fits perfectly down the center aisle. I use twist ties to hold a bike stand down to the floor and other front and back ties to keep the upright bike secure while traveling. The bike is easily taken out when I stop and at night, I pull the supports out and a shelf from the seat, put cushions down and have a comfortable wide bed. I thought about going solar, but found that electricity was easier for cooking, using a cube heater, plugging in my bike battery, ipad, and other things.

Van Conversions
by: Gail

I'm still trying to decide what would work for me.
A woman travelling alone is comfortable as long as there are other people alone. I have not been comfortable in a remote campsite.

Retiring Soon
by: Adrienne

This is exactly what I want to do in the next year when I retire. Do you have electric-lights, fan, heat? I have been looking at solar power and may go that route. Is your sink hooked up to water tanks? Do you ever get nervous traveling alone?

Can I contact you?
by: Gail

Hi

I'm also a woman in my 70s who is interested in converting a Ford Transit. Have you thought about
making it so you could stand up?
