Joe, stop calling the moderator names.

Welcome aboard Sue.

My first self contained camper was (in 1974) a 1972 Chevy Sportvan equipped by TravCo. Had a lot of fun in that contraption.

Well! What a nice, big warm welcome from so many! Thanks!

Re: thermoelectric fridge...I do have one, and I have some great backpacking stoves, so I'm all set to begin having fun in my micro-b.

I had a winnebago view, and loved it, but I want to park anywhere, AND, did you know that there are some spots in the keys that you aren't allowed to have a vehicle bigger than 15 ft in??

Got my reservations at a state campground in a tent site that my future (probably buying tomorrow??) transit connect will fit in.

I'm psyched for it, and to be here.

Thanks again all.

(And yes, the knee-jerk put-downs at are out of control, and the bizarre moderation is just so...well, you know.)

At least that's the lines I'm thinking of now. More of a metal tent than an rv really. And to be a bit more stealth.

I just want one vehicle, and something more between me and nature than a tent.
Sounds like a cool project. The dealer I work for has a Transit Connect parts van, it has over 100K on it with no issues at all other than maintenance. We had a customer come in with 300K on his. Keep it well below max weight and you should have an awesome mini motorhome.

Hi and

We have several of the Transits at work. They have help up well and have a relatively low operating cost.

I drove one for a 6 month period, my only complaint was the seats weren't meant for long trips.

Good luck with your project
