Meet the Whitney Van build - road tested and ready to go. The Whitney build started with a 2019 Ford Transit Van with the high roof, extended body, and long wheelbase options. It has 16+ feet of living space which includes a bedroom, living area, kitchen, and swivel cockpit chairs. The custom-designed interior, built around aluminum extrusion frame, provides the highest level of durably, lightweight structure, and water & moisture resistance for all your backcountry, beach, and mountain adventures.
This van features a fully functional water system and pump, with a 30-gallon freshwater tank, kitchen sink, and an off-the-back shower to keep you clean during all your off-grid adventures. The kitchen sink drains into a 7-gallon gray water storage tank which is easily removed and emptied without the need for tools or hook-ups. The freshwater tank is filled via a potable-water rated hose with common garden hose fittings.
All power in the living quarters is provided by a roof-mounted 525-watt solar array attached to a custom fabricated aluminum rack which seamlessly incorporates a separate skylight and exhaust fan into the roof. This combination ensures fresh air flow and helps maintain the overall stealthy look of the build. The rack has also been built to be expanded for extra storage and/or accessories if ever needed. A low-profile cockpit-controlled LED light bar has been added to the front of the roof to round out the topside of the build.
The rooftop solar panels feed an array of three 100Ah deep-cycle lithium batteries and provide AC or DC power, depending on the device. All power is directed to the living space through either the battery-to-battery charge controller or electrical outlets (shore power plug-ins). Powered devices include a dual-zone fridge/freezer, recessed interior lights, reading lights, computer monitor, blender, water pump, interior fans, USB charging stations, and more.
What's includedKitchen utensils, plates, bowls and a pots and pans set will be provided.
Fresh linens and two high quality camping chairs will also be included.
RecommendationsThe Whitney Van Is Great For:
Road trips of all distances
Off grid camping
Stealth camping
Music Festivals
Drive-in-movie date night
Weekends with the Boys (or Girls)
National Parks Tours
And many, many more
Other things to notePets welcome, but please keep the smoking to outside the rig. This van build has seen some rough roads but is not designed for offroad conditions. Please be kind and courteous to this custom, hand-built passion project, by the current owner. Simply want to share the Van Life experience with others.
Enjoy the open road and adventures, wherever the Whitney Van build will take you.

Meet your host, Darren

Greetings fellow road trip enthusiasts. The Whitney Van Build was a Covid passion project, that I started in 2020 and finished in 2022. In the spring (2023) I took it on a 5 week ~8000 mile road trip across the US, into Vancouver and back, hitting 10 national parks, with zero issues. I look forward to sharing the Van Life adventures with you.
Keep adventuring - Darren
