I have and use two vehicles. For day trips on good roads around the Puget Sound, I use my Toyota Prius. For everything else, I use my Sportsmobile:
The image above was taken north of Atigun Pass in the Brooks Range, along the Dalton Highway. The vehicle is a Ford E-350 cargo van converted into a camper van, with four wheel drive added. I can go most places, and camp pretty much where ever it is legal to do so. I have been able to camp at, or very near, many locations where I wanted to do sunset, sunrise, or even night photography. I use this van for landscape photography, wildlife photography, and just getting way. Our van sleeps two people (and two dogs), and has heated water, a microwave, a refrigerator, a propane stove, and a propane furnace. Most Sportsmobile campers have a pop-up top (vs. the raised hard top that I have), and now they base their Ford offering on the Ford Transit vehicle. We decided on the hard top due to the often inclement weather of the Pacific North West (which is where most of our trips are). For family health reasons, I wasn’t able to use the van much last year, but we should be able to use it this year. And next year, I hope to again drive to the Arctic Ocean – but this time via the (soon to be extended) Dempster Highway through the Yukon and Northwest Territories.
