Here is my take on this:
First off, ignore the coyote/bees guy. He seems clueless.
Here are some vehicles to consider:>cargo van
Pros: good space, easier to customize than a car. In a some, you can actually stand up inside, and in every cargo van you can sit On a chair without having your head touch the roof. It’s also easier to insulate than a car because the inner walls in the cargo area will typically be metal. Older cargo vans will have power trains that are similar to trucks, so repairs will not be too costly. Also it’s easy to go from the cargo area to the driver’s seat in an emergency.
Cons: it’s tough to find cargo vans with all wheel drive if you are going to an area with rougher terrain.>truck with a camper
Pros: 4 wheel drive is typically standard, so it’s good for rough terrain. Trucks are the most popular vehicle type in North America, so repairing it should be more convenient than most other options.
Cons: you can’t just walk to the driver’s seat from the cargo area as in a van. Also, to get into the camper, you have to step up to the tailgate. Depending on your fitness, it could be annoying. You also won’t be able to stand up in the cargo area, but if you are not to tall you can probably sit upright in a chair in one.>Ford transit connect
This one goes in it’s own category because it’s way smaller than the standard Ford Transit. It’s more compact so you’ll get better gas mileage and less space than a cargo van. It may be difficult to find one with All wheel drive since they were mostly designed for city deliveries. Also, the drivetrain is not from a truck so expect repairs to be more expensive and less convenient.
The cargo vans that are the easiest to maintain are the ones from at least 10 years ago when the mechanical elements were simpler. These have been in high demand in the market though, so they can be very expensive, even for old examples.
