Meet Lion’s Gate, our 2020 Ford Transit 250 conversion van. It features a high-roof and a ‘regular’ wheelbase—so you can park in normal parking spots. Our stealthy van is fully loaded: warm and toasty in the winter with a Wabasto heater and summer-ready with a Maxx Air fan and Havelock wool insulation. We purchased the van August 2020 during an auspicious time astrologically called the Lions Gate Portal, hence her name. She is a portal to ultimate freedom whether you’re looking for an adventure van or full-time living. It took about a year to convert her from a brand new empty cargo van to a cozy tiny home/apothecary on wheels. We decided to go with a hybrid-conversion: my husband (the engineer) created and installed all of the systems and then hired a professional carpenter to do all of the woodwork and cabinetry. The van has a luxury feel with cedar paneling, modern Italian oak drawer pulls, copper accents, imported Turkish fabric headboard, soft close drawers, and forest-green bottom cabinets. A hot shower is just right off the back of the van, with a 30 gallon water tank you’re all set for off-grid adventures. With 420watt solar panels charging 400Ah batteries (coupled with a cellphone signal booster), it makes for the perfect remote work/digital nomad life. Gourmet cooking is a breeze with a full kitchen that includes a large 23 inch hammered copper sink, fridge, freezer, 3 burner gas stove, and oven. We have been on the road full-time for 6 months, comfortably enjoying the west coast but unfortunately a new job move calls for more time in the office and putting roots down once again. If Lion’s Gate is calling you, feel free to reach out with any questions and note that we may be open to delivery (depending on location).
