Tribal Van Life: In the beginning… First Van and First Video

This is my first van build. I purchased this van from publicsurplus.com auction for $415. It is a 1997 Ford E350.

My first impression was “What did I get myself into?” However, I intend to do a low budget minimalist build the first time around and later down the road purchase a fairly newer used Chevy van. And, then build a more customized camper van with all the beautiful wood floors and walls, insulation, solar, etc.

My goal with this build is to be ready to attend the next rubber tramp rendezvous down in Arizona next winter. Hopefully, we’ll be ready by then.

Please like, share and subscribe to my YouTube channel and hopefully we’ll see you on the road. You are free to choose…

Aloha,

Tony
