TRANSIT EMPTY WEIGHT
CONVERSION ADDED WEIGHT
THAT’S THE ADDED WEIGHT FROM THE CONVERSION. Includes everything from our Build Journal: all permanent structure and all permanent appliances (fridge, range, etc). No humans. Empty fresh water tank & propane tank.
THE PAYLOAD when hitting the road at Day 1 of VanLife. Excludes the conversion added weight. Includes all humans (2), full fresh water tank, full gas tank, summer & winter gear, food (a lot), etc, etc.
FAROUTVAN TOTAL WEIGHT
ON SECOND THOUGHT...
Conversion Added Weight + Payload Weight = 3500 lbs. That’s the max payload capacity of our Transit (Extended Length, High Roof, T250, 3.7L Engine)! We didn’t expect to be carrying that much; we will re-weight the van after a while because we left with much stuff than needed (food and misc) when emptying the house.
For sure, we’re glad we installed the Air Lift Suspension a few weeks ago:
Nice To Meet You.
Hello! We’re Isabelle and Antoine In 2017 we sold our house (and everything in it), quit our engineering careers and moved into our self built campervan. We’ve been on the road since then and every day is an opportunity for a new adventure; we’re chasing our dreams and hopefully it inspires others to do the same!
