I have the full Transformer conversion with the AGM battery, XL Storage, Galley module, Loncoin flooring, 2000 inverter. I saw my first SMB 3 years ago at one of the RV shows but with 6 children didn't think I could ever get a floor plan that would work for the family.
When I saw the Transformer I started looking for a used 4x4 van that I could convert. With the help of the scouts on this forum I was able to get a great deal on mine from a post in the classifieds. It is truly a versatile vehicle. It is my daily driver and on most weekends we are traveling to tournament style sporting events. Between games we put up the penthouse put on a movie, cook some meals or popcorn in the micro and never leave the parking lot. I do have to answer many questions from bypassers. On free weekends the 6.0 diesel either pulls our 30' trailer, finds 4x4 trails or when I can swing it, a boys only fishing trip.
I just returned from a weekend fish trip with my two boys on the Kern River. This is what the bed module looks like when packed.
Bring along a coleman stove, a Mr. Heater, hotdogs, marshmellows and you're set for a weekend fishing, 4x4'n and fun
I keep the fridge fully stocked and always on.
I do have to plug the shore power in a couple of times week because my commute is not far enough to fully charge the AGM battery. In the near future I plan on installing Solar to solve this problem.
Like John K said the bed module uses the existing stock Ford seat brackets and is easily removed for storage. There is more than ample space underneath for all your camping gear.
So if you are a male in menopause who is not a sportscar person that loves the outdoors with a plethera of children, the Transformer is the perfect vehicle.
