Can you Convert the Ford Transit van Into a Motorhome?
Converting the Ford Transit van Into Motorhomes
Here at Matt Ford we like to share unique and innovative things that people are doing with their Ford brand vehicles with our readers. We recently learned that there is a new growing trend of people converting the Ford Transit utility van into motorhomes. There are actually companies out there who specialize in converting the Transit van into motorhomes for outdoor fun and adventures, and we’ll tell you all about it in this article.
When you think of a traditional RV, a giant bulky camper with poor fuel economy and a huge price tag is probably what comes to mind. None of those qualities sound very appealing, and that is what makes these Ford Transit motorhomes such a great idea. The Transit is the best-selling commercial van in America because of its spaciousness, fuel efficiency, capability and functionality. All of those characteristics work perfectly with transforming it into a dependable and cost-efficient motorhome for your family.
According to Ford Brand Manager for Transit and E-Series, Yaro Hetman, “many of these customers are interested in outdoor adventures like kayaking, mountain biking, snowboarding and such, more national park than RV park. Sales of smaller Class C motorhomes have been on the rise for the last few years as younger, more active buyers enter the market.”
There are a growing number of companies out there who are designing and building motorhome conversions for the Ford Transit van. The Recreational Vehicle Association claims that most of these cost between $60,000 to $130,000, which is a lot cheaper than a traditional RV.
“Outdoor adventure-seeking RV customers want compact, maneuverable motorhomes that can comfortably carry their families and gear from one adventure to another,” Hetman said. “Transit’s efficiency, comfortable ride and affordability make it a great choice as a motorhome for these outdoor enthusiasts.”
