I purchased my high roof + extended body Transit (bought it with 12,000 miles on it and now it has about 36,000) back in the beginning of 2020 with the intentions of renovating it fully into a full-time livable van but unfortunately due to unforeseen health issues with the person who was helping me with the build, it kind of just fell onto the back burner and I never ended up finishing it. I have taken it on many trips though even with it not being totally finished, and it's brought me a ton of joy and good times. So many good times, that I am going to sell it and buy a Class A RV so my two big dogs have more room and so that I can have something already finished. This Transit is definitely for someone who either has a shop and can work on continuing the build (or starting over if you had other ideas for it) or someone who is okay with a van that doesn't have a kitchen/bathroom/still needs a bit of cosmetic work finished up. Here is a list of everything we did do to it: -Insulated whole van with foam boards, spray foam, sheep wool, and then a few spots with "imitation" sheep wool from Home Depot when we ran out. It is very well insulated. -sub floor + vinyl on top that has been cut to shape, but does need trim work to hold the edges down and make it prettier. -ceiling was finished/lights are installed and work perfectly. -My dad copied a popular van-life blogger's electrical system and he can walk you through everything he did and how it all works. The van charges the batteries when we drive and it has shore power hookup. If you invested in Solar, it'd be a perfect electrical system. We have two outlets but you could always add more. -walls were put in but they definitely need some touch ups on paint/trim. -I also bought a security system which has a remote start. -My dad built a loft bed which is extremely sturdy but this could use some cosmetic work on the actual facings/lids if that is important to you I also just replaced the brake pads and get regular oil changes. I have never had a single issue other than the brake pads needing replaced. Message me for more details or to set up a time to see it!
