2003 E350 4X4 Window Camper Van plus Solar Option

This was a 15 passenger 2WD van owned by the USAF until 2010. I converted it to a camper for long-distance travel. My wife and traveled in it for 3 years, staying in it months at a time.

This van was set up for extended off-road, no RV Park travel that does not require a hose to fill up with fresh water or dump. Fresh water is stored in a 6-gal jug that feeds the pump. Gray water is collected under the sink in a 1.5 gal container. This is a minimalist rig, but quite comfortable if you like to travel and camp without luxuries.

We don't need 4WD any longer, so it's on the market. It runs and drives fine.
