Camper vans are a cool way to get out into the outdoors or go on vacation and not have to look for hotels. A company called Outside Van is building cool Ford Transit camper vans and the model in these images is aimed at mountain bikers looking for a place to sleep in the wilds. The custom Ford Transit camper van is built on the mid-height Ford Transit long body.
The camper can sleep four people with what looks to be a full-size bed on a raised platform inside the van and a popup tent on top that sleeps two more people on the roof. Ladders on each side of the van give access to the tent. A small galley is tucked inside the Ford Transit camper van that uses marine-grade plywood, bamboo cabinets, and paperstone countertops. The sink has a 20-gallon water tank, and there is an induction stovetop and a small refrigerator underneath.
The Ford Transit Camper van has two seats in front of the platform bed in the second row with custom maroon and gray upholstery. The van has an off-road look on the outside with a powder-coated aluminum bumper that has a 30-inch spotlight, a custom safari rack, and a 130W Zamp solar power panel. An awning is attached for shade on sunny days.
The van is too small for a shower inside, but the ride does have on-demand hot and cold water for an external shower. Adding to the off-road nature is an aftermarket four-wheel-drive conversion by Quigley Motors. We have no exact price on this Ford Transit camper van, but Outside Van can convert and build just about whatever you want with most running well over $100,000. Conversions start at $32,000 presumably not counting the van, but that is unclear. If that is too much for you to spend on your mobile abode, you could go DIY like the Transit camper we talked about last month.
