    Diving camper van for sale (UK based)

    Ford Transit Camper Van

    I've had this vehicle from new and only I have driven it. It was professionally converted by Acorn Motorhomes to my specification and to specifically accommodate my interests of diving and underwater photography. Whilst it has all the 'bells and whistles' for on-site camping it is equally at home' wild camping' at a secluded cove or harbour car park while you do a few days of back-to-back diving.

    On opening the rear load doors there's plenty of storage under the bed for multiple twin sets, stages and single cylinders and a steel bulkhead and tie-downs prevents heavy items from crashing about... Over the large bed there's an additional wide storage shelf / bunk #3. There's also a hand shower with running hot and cold water for either rinsing yourself or your kit and a gas locker which contains two 6kg propane cylinders.

    In the living area, the single passenger seat rotates 360 degrees to provide rear facing seating. The cooking facilities include a built-in a propane twin burner hob and grill plus a sink and mixer tap. The large bed converts into a comfortable sofa. There's over cab storage and ample lockers for food and cooking utensils. The 3-way fridge runs off mains, 12 volts DC and propane. Hot and cold running water to the sink mixer tap and hand shower is supplied by a water boiler running off either mains or propane and an on-board 70 litre fresh water tank.

    The vehicle is fully insulated and with the thermostatically controlled propane hot air blower running its as warm as toast during any season. Yes, overnights at NDAC in January are very dooable! Included are internal windscreen insulation panels and an external wrap-around insulation screen. On-board power is supplied by plug-in 240 volt mains or three on-board 110 amp hour leisure batteries supplying 12 volts DC or 240 volts through a 1500 watt DC/AC inverter. I can even run a low wattage electric blanket off the on-board system.

    Double glazed Seitz widows are installed in the side load door and opposite and a full length Ominstor cassette awning is mounted on Thule aerodynamic professional roof rails. Access to the roof is provided by a rear load door mounted Thule ladder.

    The vehicle is in excellent internal, mechanical and body work condition and it returns over 500 miles range from a full tank of fuel. It has always been serviced and MOT'd annually. Being a converted panel van it doesn't attract attention as a camper van. Consequently it's very easy to park up overnight at places where you'd get moved on in a coach built motor home. A medium wheel base vehicle parks easily in a standard parking space too. The huge benefit of a vehicle like this is freeing you from expensive accommodation which you'll have to pay for even if your dive trip gets blown out...

    Beware used panel van conversions which are often based on clapped-out high mileage 'white van man' trade vehicles. This is a very genuine vehicle which as a full set of documentation.

    As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
    Sounds very nice, good luck with the sale.
    Why is it that with everything in life I always find a more difficult way of doing it (and not intentionally)
