About six months ago, I made the first steps to finding out about the very smallest sized motor homes. I stopped at a local FORD dealer and spoke with two salesmen. They showed me the available used motor homes, which I told them were too big for me. Then they told me the size I was looking for (turns out it was Class B) was no longer being made, so I would not be able to find one, most likely. Not only that, the Truck Camper, which is the smallest option is also not being made but I might find one for sale from an individual, so wouldn't I like to look inside this lovely Class C or this Fifth Wheel? No, I would not.
|Unconverted, not very attractive outside, either.|
I asked about a Ford Transit van. They had several and they were somewhat reasonably priced, but completely naked inside. I mean, not even insulation and interior panels. I asked about converting one, but they had never heard of it and maybe knew one person who would know anything about that. I got (and then lost) his number and then just dropped the idea.
Imagine my surprise when I found out not only do they still make the size motor homes I am interested in, van conversion is a huge business, (the Ford Transit vans are some of the big success conversions) AND, there are also truck campers out there. Some 2016 models are available for pre-order, and many places have used models.
|We have one that might be for sale but we can't tell you|
what sized truck it needs unless you pay the ransom
of personal information so we can hound you and
increase your junk mail to mountainous heights.
The research continues.
