Ford Transit mk6 luton
Hi there thanks for viewing my ad!
I have for sale my off-grid tiny home camper van. I bought this with the intention of living full-time in it, but after meeting my amazing girlfriend we have decided to pile our money together and save for a houseboat having two campervans in the house just doesn’t make sense and as I’m not living in it now, the smaller day van is the one we’ve chosen to keep.
I bought the campervan with a blown engine, the last guy I bought it from lived in it for 2 years full-time before he was driving along one day and the old engine suddenly maxxed out on revs. Not knowing what to do in this situation (slam the vehicle into 4th and stall it) he jumped out of the van and the engine kept running at the highest revs, as there was oil in the engine, it blew.
The issue with the engine turned out to be the fuel pump and an issue that would never have happened if he managed to stall it and take it to a mechanic. Under the rocker cover there are 3 or 4 little bolts above the pushrods which were loose, a mechanic would have just taken off the rocker cover and tighten and it would never have happened.
I bought it with the ambition to change the engine, give it a makeover, and live in it.
So, I did exactly that – however, i bought the 115bhp engine to go into the vehicle, which is more powerful than the standard engine. Although it’s fitted with the 105bhp parts, having the more powerful engine gives it more mpg as it doesn’t labour as much.
The vehicle has everything done to it to get it back on the road with a bigger engine, a full service, new brakes, handbrake, lights, wipers, oil change, bulbs, tyres, welding in 1 small place and thats just the mechanical stuff. Basically, because it was stood up for a year some parts degraded which are now brand new.
This van now drives beautifully and with absolutely no rust on it, it’s one of the best specimens of a vehicle this age.
Theres a fixed double above the cab, it needs a memory foam mattress with the corners cut off.
With a bit of carpentry, you could turn the sofa into a double bed pull out
Now, onto the interior. When I bought the van the interior was a bit dated, it was incredibly practical but needed a glow-up.
I ripped up all the floor, insulated it and replaced the vinyl with expensive tongue and groove water resistant flooring. I built a shower / toilet room much bigger than the previous one and gave the whole thing just a general upgrade.
In the vehicle there is…
a propane bottle which can be refilled from the outside
4 x leisure batteries
a solar panel
relay charger from engine
an inverter for 240v applicances, with 240 extension lead
12v sockets and lights throughout
a 2 way fridge
a gas heater
memory foam mattress
gas grill and 4 burner
200l cold water storage with pump
a diesel heater (needs connecting to fuel tank)
Things i would do to the vehicle to finish it off…
A shower, toilet, and hot water boiler for shower
The diesel heater connecting
Potentially a grey water tank underslung
Move the water tank underneath
I think that’s everything, if you have any questions or want to arrange a viewing then please don’t hesitate to reach out. Honestly, this van won’t hang around – someone will snap it up and live in it full time and as I need the money for my houseboat, it’s cheaper than every other Luton I’ve seen advertised
