SOLD 1994 E250 Penthouse RB13?? 2wd In Phoenix

OK I have 4wd Ambulance (for a home build) on its way and the HOA would like me to store this elsewhere so it has to go



1994 E250 RB with a 5.8 gas engine. 144K miles.
Pop top/penthouse with sleeping for 2 up top.
Walk through design with dinette/bed in the rear (seat belts for 6 but I think 4 would make it more comfortable),
Starcool (110v AC),
microwave,
fridge,
swivel front seats.
Portapotti (stores in cupboard).
Water tank,
pump,
house batteries,
converter,
sink
stove is only a single burner portable unit (no propane which i see as a plus but others may have different idea on that)
Interior is in good condition except for the a couple of spots where the MDF is swelling (photos below)

Good running condition. I would not hesitate to drive it across the country tomorrow (if the boss would give me the time off )

Recently replaced: (Since July)
Battery,
radiator,
distributor,
MAP sensor,
Ignition Control Module,
plugs, leads, rotor cap, rotor button.
New shocks all around (nothing special just what i could get on the trip home from picking it up)
transmission flush and service.
New windshield before it is sold.

Known issues/observations:
Stripes are cracked.
Suspension is very smooth but too soft for my liking.
Airbag light flashes sometimes. (Diagnosed as the "Clock Spring")
Tires are the ones I pulled from my other van and have plenty of tread but have uneven wear.
Will need the usual Ford rear gutter repair.

$7500 OBO and would prefer to sell it to someone local who can check it all out for themselves or someone who has contacts here in Phoenix to get it checked out.










One of the good features is the recesses in both sides for your feet/head. Give the bed another 6 inches. I had another van that did not have this and it makes a lot difference.



MDF Swelling

Too bad you have to sell.

Just out of curiosity, does the smaller side, barn door actually have a tilt-out window?

Yes both side doors have the tilt out windows.

It is a bummer that I cannot justify keeping it. The main reason we went with a penthouse was to fly under the HOA radar. But apparently a real estate agent called them to confirm it was OK to keep RV's on the driveway.

Since I will have to pay storage anyway I figure this will make a fun project.

I think the map on the side might be a giveaway about it's use. The ambulance will definitely be more subtle...

I'm just really curious about the small tilt-out door window. It's like the rear door tilt-out windows. I wonder if the side tilt-out can be retrofitted?

Here are a couple of photos of the windows for you. It also has the ones in the back doors. My 1996 Clubwagon also has the popouts in the side doors but not in the rear doors. (sorry about the camera phone quality)

Side Doors


Rear doors


Actually this one is well setup for ventilation. The 2 windows at the rear above the dinette/bed are also sliders. Combine all these with the windows in the poptop/penthouse and it catches any breeze that's getting around.
