Ford Transit RV conversion in BC, Canada? or close by.
 
Tons of very smart people here.... :D 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. :confused::eek:

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.
