The plan, such as it is, started with ordering a Ford Transit 350 (“stealth” white, 148″ wheelbase, extended body, high roof, 3.5L Ecoboost engine, 0-60mph). Said van should be delivered to NE Oregon at the end of August. Between then and January 2018 we will convert it into a winter-ready camper. From January until [insert end date here] we will be calling it home.

As our build progresses I will document it here.

Fortunately, a lot of people have come before us and documented their work online so we won’t have to start from scratch. For some examples of other great builds from which we will shamelessly steal ideas, see:
