Must sell my rig after just a few months, my loss is your gain. She’s a 2008 Ford E150 11,600ish miles (I’m still driving here and there). Like new, got from a municipality in PA last year with 6k miles, they maintained it immaculately, annual state inspections show only a few hundred miles like clockwork per year. I (about 2k miles ago) put all new Hankook Dynapro AT2 all terrain tires on her.
Powered by 600W of Rich solar panels feeding a Bluetti AC200P 2000Wh Lifepo4 battery with 2000W inverter, also has a 55L 12v Dc Refrigerator/Freezer brand new two months ago.
Lot’s of extras, microwave, 14 gal water storage, propane/butane stove, build-in shelves, lots of under bed storage, Maxxair fan, passenger seat swivel, door bug net, PLUS my step thru Lectric Ebike with 111 miles on it, with its build in storage area in the “trunk”.
$33k currently in Colorado so can possibly deliver to the right buyer, we will be at the Adventure Van Fest in Eagle CO this weekend July 16-17th.

Seems like a very nice conversion but it's STILL a half ton van thats 14 years old with a DIY conversion. If it spent time in PA it may have a lot of rust on the underside. If if does not, you have a rare find indeed.

But since the loan value will probably be around 10 grand...(I'm guessing) you are gonna need a cash buyer...

You might have better luck on something like RV trader or Craigslist cuz people with money in hand will often be scanning those websites...your van might be exactly what someone is looking for...and that's exactly where they will be looking.

Good luck with your sale!

Just curious, did you build this to sell? A list of what the components cost might help justify the price you are asking. Even listing the average blue book value of the van will help. After all you are most likely talking about someone’s life savings on this forum as it will most likely be a cash buyer.

Nice rig, no doubt. That mileage is insane, for the year!
The buildout looks professional and not just "cobbed" together in someone's backyard.
Looks like a good fit for someone needing a "turn-key" vehicle that is ready to go upon purchase.

Good luck on your sale, and please get back on here to announce when you have sold it...

It's a decent conversion but for $29k you'd expect it to have a better fresh water setup with at least a hand pump and a small sink.

Refilling those 7 gall. jugs would be a chore. Lifting 56 lbs. of water into a horizontal position (twice) wouldn't be easy for most folks.

Also, if you experience a panic stop or a very minor collision, 112 lbs. of water might sail right thru those thin rods that are being used to hold the jugs in place. Just my $.02.
