Ford Transit Mk7 MWB High roof. Rear wheel drive.
High Roof Ford Transit Mk7, Rear wheel drive, Medium Wheel Base, 2.4l diesel engine 115bhp
Manual 6 speed transmission. Big but not too big to fit in a normal car park space!
First registered in 2009 with 2 owners, I have owned this van since 2010 from 5000 miles.
Tow Bar (may need condition checking as hasn’t been used for a while)
Mileage: slightly under 126,900
MOT valid until: 26/11/21 – All previous MOT certificates present
Bodywork condition: Good relative to its age. Very minor wear and tear marks.
Service history: I have most if not all of either service log book stamps or better still the garage service receipts detailing any work done.
Bespoke extendable main bed that functions as a sofa during the day, with a fixed non removable mattress section of 1270mm (front to back) x 1370mm (side to side) to maximise van living space. Easily transforms into an extra long (2000mm), full width (1370mm) double bed. I’m 6’4″ so a long enough bed was an important design point!
A versatile campervan with rental potential
As a couple, this van has served us wonderfully for various adventures and road trips around the country. However, we now find ourselves with 2 small children and it’s time to say goodbye to our first baby! Over the last few months it’s had a re-design with all new fittings, built to a professional standard through my 14 years experience as a carpenter/joiner.
Aesthetically, A ‘Hague blue’ and dark shades lower level makes way for an upper level of lighter tones with timber features. When the rear doors are open, the horizontal birch ply slats with contrasting shadow gap leads your eye out to whatever glorious viewpoint you are parked up at.
The main drive/brief for the design of this van conversion was to try and get away from the rustic style and tongue-and-groove board ceilings that seem to be ubiquitous with many camper conversions and explore a slightly more modern/minimalist yet still appealing style.

I carried out extensive research before I commenced this step of the build and eventually arrived at the following combination. Both of the insulation types I used appealed because they were both impervious to any sort of condensation. The entirety of the rear section (and above the cab) is insulated with Actis Hybris 40mm insulation in any available cavity and then an uninterrupted layer (including the floor) of SuperQuilt Multifoil insulation which doubles as a vapour control layer. This is not far off a combination equivalent to that used in houses.
