Off grid camper build by former soilder


My name is Ricky and I’m a former soilder turned outdoor survival instructor. 


I always loved the idea of being off grid and free of chains especially from todays rat race, so after tonns of research i bought myself a Ford Transit Jumbo to fully convert and to live in full time. 


I wanted to keep it minimal, practical and convenient to suit me, my partner and my dog. 


Ive currently been living out of this van for the last 2years and now with great regret will be selling up to fund my next project. 


The van itself has been awsome and reliable as i  have just come back from 8weeks in Europe and breezed it without any problem.
