well the party might be over before it begun...I think I fell off the schoolie wagon.
you see a relative just gave me a 1979 ford van E150 body. Everything is stripped or rough on it cept the body which is nice shape.
I really want more living space which is why I wanted a bus, but a nice camper van pulling a bumper pull might be just as good as a bus pulling a toad.
I was thinking I have this van body now what do I do with it...guess I will store tools and crap in it, but a google search of 79 ford van turned up some neat 4x4 conversions and I think a 4x4 camper would be a total asset for boondocking (one of the reasons I wanted a bus high clearance)
I am steal dreaming/planning/pricing parts / comparing to a bus. so dont kick me out just yet
in fact feel free to discourage all you want.
