We had so much fun reno-ing our last campervan, a 85' poptop hiace (which I've posted here on reddit) we decided to build our own 'stealth' campervan from ground up to further explore Australia in. We chose a 2002 LWB Medium top Ford Transit as the base vehicle. The van cost $2900, with a market value for that model around $6-7000. At the time of purchase I didn't know this but, we got it fairly cheap because it needed a new gear lever connector and injector pump solenoid.
