Deciding what type of van to get.

My first Campervan. 2000 Dodge Conversion. 
This is more important than you think. This is the foundation of your mobile dwelling and you need to make sure it will work for what you plan to do.

Plenty of windows and seating made this van a better passenger
van than a campervan. 
My first camper van had an extended roof. At first I thought this was ideal because I could just about stand up. After owning the van a few years I started to resent the fiberglass top.
