The van itself is a 2009 ford transit in white with colour coded front bumper and grill. It is the more desirable 140 bhp 2.2 engine 6 speed gear box, front wheel drive which gives you more head room in the rear (6ft 3inch and can stand up no problem). The van has lots of power and will happily sit at 75-80mpg on the motorway at less than 2000Rpm.
There is 175,000 miles on this van with extensive service history not full but plenty of receipts such as new clutch, flywheel and gearbox less than 30,000 miles ago. We did a full service on the van around 3k miles ago this included oil, oil filter, fuel filter, air filter, cabin filter, new front wheel bearing, new front brake discs and pads to keep it feeling fresh. And has just recently had some new brake lines fitted for the MOT.
The body work and underside are in good condition for a 10year old vehicle.
It is Moted until 18/09/2020 we have only covered around 15 miles in the van since having the MOT.
We have owned the van for 18 months and have covered 4,000 miles with no issues and it drives superb.
Couple of points worth noting if we are being picky, there is a couple of small dents in the bottom of the back doors (as pictured) a couple of small chips in the windscreen and a drip of oil every so often under the engine which we have had the garage take a look and they told us it is very minder and nothing to worry about.
The campervan is registered as a motor caravan with the Dvla on the v5 log book.
We have carried out the conversion to a good standard as we intended on having the van for a long time but due to a change in circumstances we are now putting him up for sale. This would suit a couple or even someone who wanted to travel alone. It is fully insulated with a 2kw diesel heater and pine cladding which gives it a warm cosy alpine lodge feel. There is an admiral power system with both 12v and 240v powered by an AGM battery, plenty of usb sockets, led lights throughout the conversion. This is kept topped up by a split charge relay and a 250w solar panel mounted to the roof with a Victron MPPT Bluetooth charge controller.
Professional fitted tinted side window and roof vent.
There are 2 tables that are concealable and seating area for 2 as the passenger side front seat is on a swivel base. There is a 2 burner gas hob, running water and big sink with generous counter space and storage throughout the conversion. There is also a concealed chemical toilet under the bench.
The garage space was designed with a fixed bed to be generous to accommodate outdoor equipment such as several mountain bikes, kayaks etc. The fresh water tanks and fuel tank for the diesel heater are mounted in this rear garage.
As we said previously we designed and built this van to accommodate what we wanted from a camper van and due to the change in circumstances this is now up for sale and are hoping it will suit someone who always wanted a campervan but doesn’t want to take on a conversion themselves. Viewing is more than welcome and is recommended to appreciate the van in person but please no tyre kickers. The campervan is priced fairly based on the work carried out and the content/condition of the van. Any questions or for more photos please just ask.

The main living area is equipped with a fixed bed of 170cm by 160cm with a pull out extension section if necessary. We find this addiquate due to the width of the bed on a slight angle. the pull out extension is there if needed this allows half the bed to become around 2m in length.
