FS 2013 E-350 V10 4x4 with 30,500 miles

just stumbled across this - No affiliation, but good looking 2013 V10 4x4 - this certainly looks like it has a lot of potential ...not sure why the price has no "buy it now" (expecting the bidding to bring it up no doubt) but lot of cool features if you could work to salvage some of the current tech installation

Don't even know what to think about that interior.

I would seriously love to know the "business purpose" that van was built for.....wth???

Looks like it would be used to ferry prospective deep-pocketed investors around remote/rural/rugged undeveloped property....while showing them slick real estate/oil/mining investment sales videos....and while they sipped mineral water and snacked on gourmet, microwaved hot-pockets.....

The wires hanging under the van would have me worried.

This thing looks straight out of a Simpsons episode. Who thought that this was good enough of an idea to turn it into reality?

I'm picturing a chauffeur driving this thing down a rough road, with three clients rubbing shoulders in back. All while watching a sales pitch given by someone in the rear facing seat. Accompanied by slides on all the screens. -- Presumably the person in the rear facing seat covered themselves in dramamine patches before embarking on this ordeal. Did the clients also get some in a welcome packet? If not, there may still be remnants of partially digested hot pockets stuck to the ceiling.

It might be a reasonable starting point for a DIY camper conversion, largely depending o n where the price ends up. I do like the bubble top.

This looks like an oil field service mobile office. You have some dude making $1m a year running his business and he has to be in the field with full internet access, but doesnt want to get his loafers dirty. So his company built this...for better or worse.

The possible reasons it was built are all illegal, or immoral, or both! The real reason, IMHO, is that some van fan and business owner wanted to build a toy he could write off. It's one of those builds that will NEVER recover it's investment, unless he starts using it for.......see possible reasons above.
