4×4 Lifted Camper Van: The Ultimate Adventure Vehicle if You Have the Gas Money

Usually you see posts here specifically on tiny houses on a trailers, but that’s not always the case.

This 4×4 lifted camper van is such a useful/cool vehicle to go cross country in because it can handle just about any terrain.

It’s also packed with features.. It’s like a tiny efficiency.. Or a VW camper van on steroids?

Whatever you want to look at it as, it’s pretty awesome as long as you can handle the gas money for it.

Tiny houses on trailers are awesome but they’re not as flexible and efficient as small travel trailers and motorhomes (like camper vans).

Here’s another really neat 4×4 camper van that gets better gas mileage but certainly doesn’t have as much power as an E250.

    “Tiny houses on trailers are awesome but they’re not as flexible and efficient as small travel trailers and motorhomes (like camper vans).”

    Is it really more efficient to live in a van or RV than in a tiny house on a trailer? what about one on a fixed foundation? By efficient, does the article mean in terms of reusing what’s already been built, or in terms of utility use?

      Hey Mary when I wrote efficient I meant for travel use because tiny houses on trailers are so much heavier than most RVs.

    This past weekend a free copy of this DVD – IndoctriNation: Public Schools and the Decline –Colin Gunn $17.95, was sent to me by the director himself of The Exodus Mandate Project. Today I watched the DVD and was further informed about this timely issue in our society. Since graduating from high ‘skool’ myself, I have never attended my high school reunion. After high skool, I travelled the North America continent, visiting and staying a length in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I had a lively time. In later life, very late in life, I went to college and finished Henderson State University not-so-recently. I have never liked public ‘skooling’ back then and now. Years ago, I read John Gatto’s books, and donated them to the local library when I lived in Bismarck, ND in an efficiency apartment. I also read, Escape from Childhood John C. Holt (Author), his other books years ago.
    This DVD – IndoctriNation: Public Schools and the Decline –Colin Gunn sits alongside all of my small house books in my tiny home here in Arkansa.

    The Exodus Mandate Project is offering a one-year emergency plan to rescue Christian children from the godless, pagan public schools and to place them in K-12 private Christian schools or Christian homeschooling. This rescue plan, the “Call to Dunkirk ,” is named after the World War II event of 1940 in which 340,000 British and Allied troops were miraculously rescued from the beaches of Dunkirk in the face of the German Nazi War machine. State-run public schools have become destructive to our children’s Christian faith. They no longer educate but rather indoctrinate. Not only morally corrupt, public schools are unsafe because of the violence and crime that occurs in them on a regular basis.

      Uh, what does this have to do with the really cool camping van that is shown here?

        Perhaps the writer got his website mixed up or his travels may or may not have included living in a ‘camper type’ vehicle.
        There are websites that will do conversion of many SUV or vans to make them into campers. Some offer tents that can be attached to the vehicle to ease camping.
