The 2004 Ford E-350

This heavy duty extended workhorse has served well as a grip van, carrying heavy loads of lighting and camera equipment from 2010 until 2018. It has a huge interior and the strongest suspension available. In 2019 I converted it into a mostly-passenger vehicle with the flexibility to switch between a work vehicle and a camper van. It gets about 12mpg.
