Buying a van
This is day one of my camper van conversion.  I just bought this Ford E250 cargo van. For me the van buying decision came down to price, repair work required and vehicle reliability.

Test post……..After spending a month looking at cargo vans, I bought this Ford E-250 Ecoline van for $7000.  My van buying decision was based on three main things: how affordable was it, how much work I’ll have do on the body or engine and how much more distance/years can I expect to get out of the van.  The cargo van I bought isn’t perfect but it has most of the things I was looking for.

Here are the questions I was asking myself before I made my final decision:

Include one internal link and one external link.  blah blah blah

Van Buying Decision Process

Maintenace History

My most important consideration is how well the van’s engine and drivetrain have been maintained.

Rust Removal and Repair

When you’re buying a used vehicle, more than likely, there’s going to be some rust.

How many miles is too many for a used van?

The biggest unknown about buying a van is how long will the van last.  How many more years will you get out of it?  How many more kilometres or miles will you be able to put on it?



Am I happy with my van buying decision?

I would say, yes, I got a reasonably good used cargo van at a decent price.  I think I should be able to get another 5 years out of it.
