Ford Transit Connect. Those are pretty tight if you can find something in your price range.

near wild willy's hotsprings
84 e350 diesel
bought the beast for $1200 almost three years ago, living in it ever since. way bigger/better than truck with camper, astro, westy, etc. actually have room for two crashpads, bike, everything inside. converted to run on vegetable oil, added 55gal veg oil tank, at 15mpg gets me 850 miles at a time for free. hasn't given me much trouble mechanically but the tranny is finally dying. i think i'd head up to washington or canada to try to find a 4x4 for my next one.

This is a novel auto blocking belay device.  I think it works quite well, depending on rope thickness and sheath quality, it belays very smooth.  Great to lower with.  You gotta love over engineering.  $3 at a gear swap!

It's crazy to watch the Taliban and now the Libyan rebels fly around in Land Cruisers, wish you could buy a 70 series Landcruiser in the states.

alpine happiness.

I dedicated the last five years of my dirtbag career, to an Astro Van...needless to say, I ended up paying five years of rent, and no longer trust it to drive in town...I picked it up at 75K miles, and have poured a few grand on maintenance into it each year...it's at 160K miles now...
Important to note, that while the Astro/Safari seems perfect on paper...they are under-engineered, as someone pointed out earlier...GM also stopped production of these in 2005, so good luck getting parts on them anymore...my dash lights went out a year ago, and I can't find that wiring harness anywhere...not to mention, faulty door handles, etc...GM is no longer making spare parts for the Astro/Safari model...
I'm currently in the market for a new van...as I need to retreat back to the fringe and freedom of being on the road...and I haven't a clue what to get...

I wish VW made a cargo van, and I wish they did AWD...I try to stick around the West as much of the winter as possible, and AWD sure is nice!

I have a Toyota 4 runner and I love it, but not dirt baggin/living in it. On longer trips when i stay in my car I have to keep things outside to sleep inside it. My suggestion is its a little to small to live in unless your have very little belongings. I've seen awesome truck set ups with raised beds so you can sleep on a raised platform and store underneath, seems like a good set up
