For many people as of lately, it seems to me, that they are torn between an off road camper, or the popular, and very expensive, 4 X 4 van conversions. If you are here, you likely chose the van. Now that you have time in it, what are your thoughts on living space? Do you find that it is adequate and well thought out? Are all necessary appliances placed well, or are there adjustments that can be made? And the big question is, do you feel that you made the right choice?

I’ve had five camping units over the past 20 years and I’ve always felt that each one was the right choice

The 4x4 van conversions I’ve viewed don’t have enough fresh and waste water capacity for staying more than a couple of nights boondocking.

My 1997 Xplorer 230XL has a 25 gallon freshwater tank. I've spent 4 winters in FLA for up to 2 months with over half of that boondocking. But I am alone in the rv. I've had this since 2000 and really use it and love it, putting 170,000 more miles on it.

My thinking is that for most of the stuff that I carry I don't need to carry it. So every few months I toss out the stuff I have not used for a while. I had more space in the Class C and the Truck camper but honestly didn't need to carry most of the stuff I had in them. In the Transit I carry what I need and that is it and still have lots of room left.
