Default Project Vangina Campervan/Tow rig

So I needed a new tow rig pretty bad. I was getting tired of borrowing a company truck even though dad didn't really care. But I dont really want to drive a fullsize everyday. So I came up with some requirments, cause I want to be able to camp and wheel. But also haul 4 people in seat belts safely. Sleep 2 guys in seperate beds or but also have room for kids.

And so the Van was born. I will have to be a little careful not having 4 wheel drive when getting in and out of some parks in the winter but some sacrafices had to be made.

I picked up a 2001 Ford E-350 15 passanger church van with 100k miles and a 5.4 liter motor for $2800.

I was pretty hesitant at first. Cause lets face it. Who really has a goal of buying a big ass van.

First things first was the interior. Gutted the interior of all the seats. And started laying down a new floor.

Add some window tint and lose the running boards
