Momma says it's time -- 1998 Quigley E350 Extended AdventureWagen (SOLD)

Vehicle Sold
I am taking a different turn, and my AdventureWagen van is now for sale.

1998 V-10 w <80k miles. Great great condition with all reciepts ever (former owner was meticulous in his maintenance and his keepage of records).

I will take some fresh pix, and write a full description late this week, but in the meantime, those familiar with the van ought to know that it's for sale.

Ambitiously priced at $19,500.

Wow; I think that your "ambitious" price is going to be a very good deal for someone! Heck of a nice looking rig!

Low miles, V10, 4x4, and a fully built interior? That should sell quick at your price! New owner just needs Agile's RIP kit.

That looks like a greet buy! I love those adventure wagons, and the way they kept stock trim panels and OEM windows.

Hi Jin,

It's already got an Agile RIP kit. I was one of Ramsey's early customers for the package. It settled down the ride nicely. Though I keep making/breaking appointments to go down and see him for a re-valve or well-baby-check to see if we can improve it even better.

The biggest shortcoming of the van, in my estimation, is the Quigley conversion (done at the factory when the van was new) necessitated cutting down the fuel tank to 21 gallons. With the V-10, that turns into a safe range of prox 220 miles. There are solutions that might involve Aluminess and TransferFlow and my kids' inheritance. There are other solutions that involve a larger fuel tank in place of the existing one -- I can explain on the phone.

The second biggest shortcoming is ergonomics. I don't bend as easily as I used to, and climbing in and out of the side door 8 million times to stir pasta is kind of a drag. (And because the van is tall, it's hard to stand outside and reach inside to cook.)

It really is a nice looking and functional van. The clearcoat on the hightop is peeling pretty badly on the passenger side, which is unsightly -- otherwise the van presents well.

Also, as stated in the orig post, Hannah doesn't like it. And I'd like to travel with her, ergo, we're looking for something that both of us like.

+1... Very nice looking rig. I LOVE My 1997 V10 w/ Quigley & Agile RIP. While I agree that Quigley is a bit of a shortcoming, Agile sure makes it more palatable!

SOLD.

(Hey mods: I seem to have misplaced the EDIT button, so I can't mark this as "sold" in the thread title. Can you help, please?)
