Since my "Delica" no-go, I am looking at high top cargo van to make into an RV. I want something to live in for 2-3 month periods while I travel, vacation, and generally be useless and semi-retired. Sprinters have been my main focus... another consideration I had was a small shuttle bus or short bus. Beyond the solar stuff, I have almost all of my conversion material already on hand.. and of course, an obligatory thread will follow to show the build as I do it.
It will be just me and 2 under-30 lb dogs. Cooking is a big deal for me, not eating out... as well as bathroom and shower comforts. I am not digging campers because they don't seem like they could make it through an accident. I even considered an ambulance... that would take care of the inverter issue immediately.
The one thing I do know is it has to have a diesel engine, and I am weighing the l5 and the 6 from Mercedes vs big v8 diesels like the 7.3.
Any ideas are welcome.
