Looking to Buy a F-350 7.3Lt 4x4 Sportsmobile

Looking to buy a Diesel F350 4x4 sportsmobile with a penthouse sleeper. I'm open in terms of interior layouts and reasonable mileage. Looking for a 7.3 but willing to consider the 6lt. My budget is 50,000. Thanks for looking.

Finding a F350 w 7.3 is easy...
Finding a F350 7.3 SMB will be impossible.

Try searching for a E350 lol

Might be about 10k under budget but that's what I got. Figured posting couldn't hurt since I've searched about every major city in the US. I'm located in northern California but am willing to travel.. ...

6.0 not outside realm of possibilty.....especially if you land a nice 2WD rig and have the 4WD installed yourself.

This one was for sale for $19,999 two weeks ago.....got bought quick and is already being flipped now for $38k.....

Sportsmobile Van 2006 Diesel with 52K miles - $38000
https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/...577080999.html

That's a clean low-miles 6.0L EB......they're out there.......if you'd picked it up from the original seller two weeks ago, you could have dropped an Agile 4WD system into it for around $20-25k (all-in, wheels/tires/re-gearing axles).....woulda been a nice rig for $45k.......

On an extreme budget = ya gotta do some extreme hunting and scouting.

.....or, here's another option......

.....a 250,000-mile 7.3L 4WD EB for sale for $23,500.
Just add pop-top and build the interior of your choice.

And keep about $5-$10k in a "unforeseen yet realistically likely" repairs-and-maintenance reserve piggy bank.

---------------------------------------------------------

2002 Ford E-350 XLT 7.3L Diesel 4x4 Van - $23500 (San Jose, CA)

https://slo.craigslist.org/cto/d/200...590610845.html

Ford E-350 with the highly sought after 7.3L diesel engine and 4x4 conversion (Salem Kroger not Quigley), Borg-Warner transfer case, leaf spring front end with air bags.

Just in time for your summer adventures to places where mere mortals fear to tread, you can arrive with all your gear and a quiet, dry queen sized bed to sleep in. I built a custom steel bed frame that's included (or not) and several extra bench seats that you can choose from. It also has brand new seat covers in front.

This van is the 4x4 van to own. It looks great, runs great, and handles off road terrain like a boss. It's a 2002 with a late '90's body.

I love the van, but I got weak in my old age and bought a brand new 4x4 Sprinter with all the options. Last summer I took an E350 4x4 to Canyonlands in Utah out Panorama Point at the Maze and drove the White Rim Trail; an unforgettable trip, enabled by the van.

What he said-

"And keep about $5-$10k in a "unforeseen yet realistically likely" repairs-and-maintenance reserve piggy bank"

I bought a sought after 1 owner 00' Excursion 4x4 7.3 and it was my most towed biggest POS vehicle out of the 20+ I've owned. They fetch a pretty unicorn or novelty premium with a hyped 500k mile motor. Being older rigs the components deteriorate from age not neccesarly mileage.

You can PM me if you want to know what all I had to replace in the first year, and the second year.

This is my contribution. Found on my local Craigslist. Can't believe its still for sale, but he never got back to me so I could see it, so maybe it isnt real.

2006 4x4, pop top, diesel, 110k miles, bed below and home built stove/sink. Seems super cool and the price is $37.5k.
