Camper vans come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and often they are based on big vans that can be harder to drive and are more thirsty on fuel. A man from the UK called Steve North wanted a camper van, but he wanted it to be very sporty looking both inside and out. He started with a budget of £77,000, which is about $96,000, and settled on a Ford Transit Custom as the base, then handed it over to a Ford approved customizer.
North is a car and motorcycle guy and wanted something sporty to take him to the car and motorcycle shows around the UK. The Ford Transit Custom camper van also had to be comfortable for him and passengers. The work on the van was completed by a pair of Ford-authorized vehicle modifiers with MS-RT taking on the outside of the van. We’ve seen a very cool MS-RT Ford Transit work van in the past. MS-RT adapted its cool body kit for camper use, in this case, giving the camper a lower front spoiler/splitter and a set of 18-inch wheels.
The interior of the Ford Transit Custom was handled by Wellhouse Leisure using a pair of rotating front seats that can turn backward and a rear bench that flattens into a double bed when its time to sleep. The rear seats slide to the back to give more floor space, and along the right side of the van is storage, a sink, a two-burner stove, a small refrigerator, and a microwave.
North wasn’t particularly frugal with his choices inside. He splurged for the Wellhouse £2,000 ($2,480) starlit Alcantara ceiling but did go for the practical pop-up roof for an additional bedroom up top. That allows the van to sleep four comfortably. A roll-out awning on the outside gives a nice outdoor vestibule with protection from sun and rain. The finished van looks like quite the way to spend a weekend.
