The Ford Transit 148 High Roof Van: Your Perfect Companion for Travel and Camping Adventures

When it comes to embarking on memorable travel and camping adventures, having the right vehicle can make all the difference. Enter the 2019 Ford Transit High Roof Van—an exceptional choice for those seeking comfort, versatility, and reliability on the road.

As you probably know, we are in the final phase of our latest van interior remodel. We should have everything built and installed, ready for move-in in about a week or so. Then it’s time for our first “shakedown” adventure trip.

We have been camping since we first dated in the 2000’s, starting off in a tent with basic gear stuffed into the back of a vintage K-5 Blazer! We were younger…much younger and sleeping on the ground didn’t seem to bother us. But then, we were in love and, did we mention, young?

We have owned three different campers so far – A 19-foot Salem towable travel trailer, a 27-foot Four Winds Class C camper, a 25-foot mini–Class A Thor Vegas 24.1 named Elvis, and now our 2019 Ford Transit high roof #van called the “Pineapple Princess.”

In this blog post, we’ll explore the many benefits of owning a Ford Transit High Roof van and how it can enhance your travel and camping experiences like it has in our 2019 Transit DIY campervan. We love our van a lot and with the new remodel, we expect to love traveling and camping in it even more!

Spacious and Versatile Interior: The Ford Transit High Roof van boasts an impressive amount of interior space, making it an ideal companion for extended road trips and camping expeditions. With its high roof design, you’ll have plenty of headroom to move around comfortably, and the vast cargo area provides ample room for storing camping gear, bicycles, and other outdoor equipment.

Whether you’re traveling by yourself or with family and friends, the Transit’s configurable seating options offer versatility to accommodate both passengers, pets, and camping gear, so everyone travels in comfort.

Efficient and Powerful Performance: Equipped with a range of reliable engine options, the Ford Transit High Roof van offers an excellent balance between power and fuel efficiency. The available turbocharged engines deliver impressive performance, allowing you to navigate challenging terrains and overtake with ease while maintaining a respectable fuel economy. We’re averaging about 16-mpg in our Transit.

Enhanced Safety Features: Safety should always be a top priority, especially during travel and camping adventures. The Ford Transit van comes equipped with a comprehensive list of advanced safety features to provide peace of mind on the road.

Customizable Conversion Options: One of the most significant advantages of owning a Ford Transit High Roof van is the endless possibilities for customization. Our van is the shorter 148” wheelbase model which is the perfect size for us and the dogs.

And the shorter length of our van makes parking in a regular parking spot a breeze! Ford offers an extended length version that offers several more feet of usable floor space but will have you looking for a suitable parking space.  

The spacious interior of either length van lends itself to conversion projects, like us, allows you to transform your van into a comfortable home on wheels. Whether you’re a weekend camper or a full-time traveler, you can design the interior layout to suit your specific needs, adding features such as a bed, kitchenette, storage compartments, and even a bathroom with shower.

Excellent Reliability and Longevity: When investing in a vehicle for travel and camping, reliability is paramount. Built with quality materials and robust construction, this van is engineered to withstand the demands of both long-distance journeys and rugged off-road adventures.

With proper maintenance, you can rely on your Transit to serve you faithfully for many years, making it an excellent long-term investment for your travel and camping needs.

The Ford Transit van offers a multitude of benefits that make it an ideal choice for travel and camping enthusiasts.

From its spacious and versatile interior (JK is 6’3” and doesn’t need to duck his head anywhere inside the van) to its efficient performance, enhanced safety features, customizable conversion options, and excellent reliability, this van provides everything you need to embark on some epic and unforgettable adventures.

There seems to be no stop to the #rvlife or the #vanlife craze, so if you’re looking for an adventure recreational vehicle that combines comfort, functionality, and the freedom to create your own unique travel experience, take a look at a Ford Transit van. It might be the perfect companion for your next journey.
