New World Vans Conversion Ford Ranger

Hello,

I was looking at the Roll-A-Long Rangers and thought you might like to see the Ranger conversion that I own. Pictures attached.

It is a 1984 Ranger with a New World Vans Conversion. Built in 1984 in Mishawka, Indiana. The big difference is the wheel base. They didn’t just mount a camper on the stock frame, but stretched it to 160 inch wheel base. It is long and low. Instead of short and top heavy. It is still original with only 44,000 miles.

I was told that New World Van Conversions was only in business for about two years. They built full size van conversions and type B motorhomes. It is believed that my Ranger is the only conversion that was built. I don’t know for sure, but I can’t find anything like it on the web. The interior is more like a party-tailgating van than a RV. It has a sink and built in cooler and six captain chairs. The rear four chair recline to make two single beds. I’m not sure what I am going to do with it. But for now I enjoy cruising around and turning heads.

Let me know what you think of it and if you have ever heard of any other Rangers like it.
