A man spent £77k converting a Ford Transit into a campervan
Ford then announces it will introduce its own Transit Camper. Ultimate trolling
Somewhere in the UK is a man named Steve North. Steve really likes Fords. Steve previously built an Escort Mk2 rally car, but after entering a couple of events he sold it to fund this. This is a fully-custom Transit campervan, converted by Ford-accredited partners MS-RT and Wellhouse Leisure at a cost of £77,000.
That’s a lot of money for Steve to fork out. And unfortunately for Steve, Ford has now announced that it will build its own Transit camper that it first showed us earlier this year. Steve must be furious, although it may please Steve to know that Ford’s own camper is called the Transit Custom Nugget. How strange.
Anyway, back to Steve. His camper started life as a long-wheelbase Transit Custom, but the rear now houses a full kitchen, a leather-clad seating area and a starlit Alcantara roof that extends to accommodate the attic bed.
Up at the front there’s sat nav and adaptive cruise control, as well as even more Alcantara on the dash. Steve likes Alcantara.
The Transit’s exterior is wearing MS-RT’s wide-arch body kit and dual exhaust system, and there are Xenon headlights and 18-inch Oz Racing wheels to complete the look.
“I’m hoping to have some good times out exploring some Ford shows and motorbike shows – once my trailer has been built to carry my classic bikes – and I’m looking forward to travelling around the country seeking out new adventures,” said Steve.
