Just purchased a 1990 Ford E-250 Econoline, with a Sportsmobile conversion. The layout is apparently custom but closely resembles the stock "EB18" design. (I actually found the original order sheet with furniture cutouts carefully taped to the floor plan, in a drawer inside the van.)
In college I had a 1990 E-150 Club Wagon for a while, so the driving dynamics are very familiar.
The van needs very little and I'm looking forward to taking it out. I had a Westfalia for a while, and this reminds me of a bigger, more elaborate version of that.
I'm also an amateur radio operator and frequently volunteer to do communications for rally races, so this should work nicely for that as well. In the past I've used a number of vehicles for that job, most successfully a Mercedes 300TD wagon, but when you're spending all day parked on a logging road in the middle of the woods, a camper has a lot to recommend it.
