I converted this 2012 Ford Transit Connect XLT into the perfect city-weekend car. All designs are my own, and are customized for this vehicle; I spared no detail or craftsmanship in the design, build, and finish. I have invested approximately 150 hours in the build–it was a labor of love!

The intention for this build was multi-functionality:

Use it as a commuter or city vehicle, or as a remote office. Cargo height is 5′–high enough to sit upright even for tall people (I am 6′ tall) or to stoop while walking.

All of the cabinetry / shelving inside is easily removed using metal pins (see video link Remove everything in five minutes and transform the car into a micro moving van (payload is 6′ long x 5′ tall x 5′ wide).

The best perk of this vehicle is its potential as a car camper. If you are a wilderness seeker or a weekend sightseer, this conversion gives you the basic footprint to customize your finishes: add a second battery and an inverter to run your electronics; add curtains for privacy and temperature regulation. Stretch the camping season to include late fall and winter, while saving money on lodging and staying close to the trailhead. Sleeps two small or medium frame adults; or go solo or with dog(s) and stretch out. I used non-toxic wool insulation in the walls and ceiling.

This vehicle is a two person only; there are no additional seats and no functional options for adding them.

Car runs and performs great. Regular maintenance and oil changes. New front brakes (June 2020). Relatively low miles (88000) for its year (2012).

Your interest and questions are most welcome; please write me if you have any, or even if you want to swap conversion stories and ideas.

I am in no rush to sell; only reasonable offers will be considered. When I find the right buyer and we finalize, I will use the money to pay for my next van build 😀

Happy Van Shopping!
