  1. Deryk the Gypsy

    Dobby my 2010 Ford Transit Connect XLT(soon to be camper lol)

    Thank's Will! Yeah I really didn't want a white one...I will probably stop at truck stop's while traveling but not looking to blend in and I want to add 2 more windows that open for air flow. My neighbor was looking at it and swears he never saw one before...and he was a tractor trailer driver. I said you saw them but being white it is a fleet vehicle typically and you just kind of ignore it. I saw them on the road but never gave it any thought...now, I see them all over the place. I am starting to honk and wave at the other drivers.

    Finally 2014 Camper finished

    Really Nice! I hope Ford will add the awd to the transit connects in the near future...a little more clearance and they can have beastly mini campers!

    Thanks! I looked for almost 3 months. I regret not being fast enough on a 2013 ftc xlt premium wagon had 42k miles and was $8900. It was orange but if I got tired of it could always do https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Auvf7DDw5z0 lol. The prices on the FTC's are crazy. 140k miles for $8k? I saw a few with under 30k miles for $13k+ . I lucked out because the garage who was selling it took dark shitty pictures. When I called him, he told me 1 previous owner, he serviced it and when the business went under he bought it to flip it. He said no accidents real clean and it was...the pictures didn't do Dobby justice. The interior is dry from yesterdays downpour all day long. On to the next step if the sun ever comes out lol
  5. I bought my ftc last month with a hair under 43k miles in pretty decent shape overall. Over time I want to turn him into a proper little campervan! I just installed a Maxair Maxxfan Deluxe and today it downpoured all day (was dry the last time I checked). I stained and polyurethaned 2 pieces of 3/4 oak ply for the floor... needs a 3rd coat when the sun comes back out tomorrow And I start my slatbed...I think I have enough wood for it lol.
