Casper the Van 2.0 is a remodeled version of my first $3.5K budget self-converted van build. It is the same Ford Transit van, but the conversion was redone from scratch to include most of the luxuries I wish I had incorporated in my first DIY build. Casper 2.0 was designed by me and built by RV Renovators in Mesa, Arizona.
