Question Ford Transit RV conversion in BC, Canada? or close by.

Tons of very smart people here.... asking in the "off topic" area.

Would have likely used SMW, but importing to Canada once converted is basically impossible. I have done the research.

Iím now researching experienced up fitters for converting a new Transit cargo van to be an RV, in BC, Canada, or close by.

(have not bought Transit yet; would likely buy Transit in Canada to avoid importing hassles)

I do not want to do it myself.

I do not want to buy an already converted one, or a used one.*

We have very specific needs and desires (see below)*

The up fitter to class B would basically do:

Solar
Electrical (shore and 12v + inverter)
wall insulation
Rixen heat, and maybe Rixen hot water
maybe shower stall + fresh + grey tank.
add 3rd captains chair.
MOAB bed install.
Maxx fan.

no black tank, as Port A Potty
no propane.
no generator.
not a Sprinter.

Google didnít turn up anything.
I read Safari Condo in Quebec is good, but that is a really long way from BC, so logistically as I work (very) full time, that gets tough.

thanks.

Thereís a Canadian company called New-West(.com) that I *think* is based in BC. But Iím not sure. They appear to use Safari Condo tops but do their own interior builds. I had never heard of them until I saw one on an RV dealerís lot here in PA a few months ago.

Check with a guy with the forum name Johnny5 over on the expo forum. He does really nice builds. He might do one for you.
