There are a lot of choices out there for vehicles that you can turn into weekend adventure camping rigs. My personal favorite right now would have to be the Ford Transit with the EcoBoost engine and all-wheel-drive setup. Those are spendy though, and my shopping routine is more akin to Craigslist trolling than dealership visits. And that’s how I found someone selling three used school buses. Each one could be a perfect starting point for a van-life-style build.
You have easy access to the living space with the side door. These are built stout and designed to be run for many miles. Just strip out all the extra seats you no longer need, get a bed and kitchen space in there, and you’re good to go.
