It’s Getting Serious….

The past few weeks we have been having beautiful weather in Western NC, so we decided to head outdoors for our morning homeschool session. The boys did their reading while we were outside, along with a few other subjects. While outside working on our school, I get an unexpected call from my husband….

Our local dealership had a Transit in the size that we had been considering. For the past few years, we’ve tossed around the idea of purchasing either a Sprinter or a Transit to convert into a camper.

Ultimately after comparing our options, we felt that the Ford Transit was the way for us to go when it came to our family.  We knew that we wanted to purchase a passenger van instead of a cargo due to the passenger van having air bags.  Sure the air bags will add limitations when it comes to the conversion, but it will keep our kiddos much safer during travel. 

The test drive went well considering the vehicle was almost out of gas and it said we could go 6 miles until empty. We’re still tossing it around if we want this particular size, if financially we can do this, and if without a doubt we know we want to go the Transit route.

Stay tuned to see what we end up with. Will #VanLife happen for us?
