Dodge camper van review! Today I'm reviewing an old-school relic -- a 1980s Dodge camper van with a bathroom and a kitchen! I'll show you around this van and show you all of its quirks and features, and then I'll get it on the road and drive it and show you what it's like behind the wheel of this cool 1987 Dodge B250 camper van.

Fiat 126 has similar triangular windows like this. We called it window for smokers. Very handy for someone who like to drive with cigarette in hand.

Most conversion vans started out as cargo vans, not passenger vans.

i just love this one. I wish i had one of these old school but very thought through campers. Fun Factor 1 might be the fun factor regarding a normal car, i wonder what the camping fun factor would be in an AMG estate car -15? If you compare these totally different vehicles you should give them a fun factor in the category of their own.

A few things…. One, brown & beige in a camper you’d take to dirt, sand, mud, gravel, etc is still the primary color scheme in most campers. It makes sense. Two…. That upholstery is the leftover upholstery from the first generation Nissan Stanza. The 2nd gen came out for 87, and did not use their unique debossed square upholstery anymore. I had an 84 with this exact upholstery and an 87 that was more Maxima-styled upholstery. They were the only make and model to use that upholstery and in only the first gen Stanza.

Do you have to describe each item's use? I believe we all know what lights, microwaves, stoves and sinks do. Just a thought. Nice van though. I'd use it.

Well, it's not German so obviously it gets a low fun factor score. Sticking a BMW badge on this would add 8.

Death trap. If one rear tire fails the van rolls over. And from what I learned in law school, the raised roof is not very well secured and can easily come off in a collision. Chrysler did not design this van in contemplation of a third party cutting off the factory roof. Cut off the factory roof and the van loses structural rigidity.

These Van's were great in warm, dry weather. You WOULDN'T want to "camp" in it in the dead of a snowy, icey, COLD Winter! Kitchen? Great! Where's the commode? You'll inevitably need it after preparing your cooked meal.

One of the few large vehicles that CHRYSLER CORP got RIGHT at the time when they were eschewing "big" high performance cars for the infamous "K" cars. Although technically this van was considered a "TRUCK" at the time.

I have a 1990 Lear conversion Dodge Ram B 250, standard length. It has all the needed convenience without being fancified. It has upper cupboards, a dining area that folds out to a bed. I'm short enough at 5' to use only one bench folded out leaving the other for lounging. I can leave it folded down and made up as a bed. My passenger seat is turned around . I took out the microwave and the tv as I prefer to boon dock. The stove is not built in but I've made a permanent space for a coleman 2 burner propane stove. No tanks to deal with. I carry 15 lbs, of water, more is just added weight. Camping solo my water goes for 3 weeks as do my refrigerated items. I could live quite comfortably in Ms Joy. I'm an artist and often out for as long as 3 months. She's not brown. A patterned grey and blue and I've added red and mustard yellow. I wouldn't mind 2' extra space, however, the size I have gets anywhere I want to put her. The vintage dodge rams do have a problem, however, many of their parts are no longer made. I'm currently trying to source windshield wiper roters also headlights.

There's a NLfastr called Taylor's Travels who lives in one of these (or at least did at one point). She has a video tour of hers with some history about the company, if you find that the Road Trek just happens to be your jam.

Well we're driving a 1976 very orange dodge conversion. No toilet but the side of the road is always nearby. This is basically a truck chassis and can handle some pretty rough roads but hates getting stuck in slow traffic or traffic jams
