Our Backpacking Van and Tow Vehicle

Van Life E350 Ford

When we decided to choose a Van for our Tow Vehicle instead of a hefty pickup, we had a specific Van in mind. As advid backpackers, we know the rule of muli-purposing gear. So why not use that same concept with our Tow Vehicle. After all, our Airstream can’t go to all the places we would like to go. Especially remote Trail Heads. Here is a breakdown of just how and why we renovated a 1999 Ford E350 Diesel.
