Probably because they don't know themselves. Seems high for a pretty basic van IMO.
And why, in 2013, did they put that big fridge vent hole in the side! There are much better options these days.

It may be because, in hotter climates like Arizona, I’ve been told you need to increase the venting of the fridges for them to work correctly.

I would have gone with a chest style fridge on a slide out. No huge vent on the side of the van needed.

Could be right. I just hate big holes in the sides of vans I guess. There are much better ways to do it nowadays. Floor vent, computer fans here and there etc.

They probably put the hole in the side because itís a three-way fridge that can run on propane (according to the ad). But still, it could be a smaller vent. Also says it has propane heat, so maybe thatís the heater vent? I donít see any other vents on it unless covered by the open sliding door.

Ford e150
Since it's an E150..it's pretty much gotta be a 4.6L

If it were a 2006 or older I would assume that too, but the 2007-2014 E150s were built on the thicker E250 frame, have 8 lug hubs...basically an E250 with lighter duty front springs and rear leafs, and softer shocks. Lots of upfitters got the E150s in later years knowing they are built for the extra weight, and got the optional 5.4 for the needed power.

The 2006 and earlier E150s are five lugs and have truly wimpy looking frames and usually had the V6 or the 4.6.

The subject van is a lot of scratch for a homebuild. It's done nicely, but those tiny windows are next to useless! The fridge vent is almost as big as the windows. Must be dark as a cave in there. Also, if youre gonna spend the coin on Bushwackers, don't leave the stock steelies with the 1990s hubcaps. One of the cheapest looking hubcaps ever made, yet Ford used them from 1997-2014. A 2" lift and a decent set of wheels and tires would really help it lose the plumbers van look. I love a good home build, but this one needs some help.
