Welfare van?

Updated: Oct 4

I've always liked the thought of a VW camper... but when I saw it, well, I was kind of put off. And then I saw a Ford Welfare Van. Welfare van? I guess it was used for workmen's ablusions while they work on the road or something like that. I never even knew they existed until I saw a whole group of these vans for sale in the south of England!

Reflections on the comparison between the VW Campervan and the Ford Transit Welfare Van. The VW I could live in immediately, while the Ford Welfare Van would need some work to change it, which I'm willing to do.

Talking about money is always tricky. However, the budget I'm looking to spend on my perfect van is between £5k-£20k. Paying the lower sum will enable me to budget for alterations and changes to suit my needs as a home environment. The more I spend on the initial buy, the less I will be able to alter.

I am looking to live 'full-time' in the van, so need it to be comfortable or, at least, have the potential to be comfy.

Do subscribe to follow me on my journey to find the perfect van (for me at least!) and, if you want to get notifications of other videos as I upload them, just click the bell!

Meanwhile, please do watch Mel's World YouTube channel - where he shows you how he builds his van conversions, here:

Also, if you're a van enthusiast, I'd advise you to pay a visit to and possibly join the Facebook group who has helped me so much over the past couple of weeks, Self Build Campers And Real Life here:

Also, thanks to John, for the offer of 'mechanical' assistance, at

Thank you for listening.
