We are willing to travel to nearby states if necessary.
Having built a camper from a HR EL Transit, my best advice is to do that research before you get to the dealer.
Chances are, the options you select will be stuff specific for your needs.
For example, I went with the dual battery/HD alternator, but NOT the RV package.
At least when we ordered our van, the RV package excluded ordering power leather front seats, which is something we really wanted.
There are plenty of folks here, and on the Ford Transit forum, who can help keep you looking in the right direction.
