2001 Chinook 4x4 7.3 with 62k

No price listed but it could be anywhere from $50k to $100k. They probably know how rare this Class B RV is. Honestly this rig is the holy grail. All the good stuff of the Baja but without the tacky paint job. I want it so badly

I really want to like these.. but I don't. Rear entry is weird, no dedicated bed space, so you have to unpack/repack your bed every night/morning while camped.

That said, this looks like an excellent example!

That thing is sweet, but I agree Robb. I went round and round about this before buying my MH and I'm really happy with my choice. Mine isn't 4x but it could be. Also, Chinook quality is probably better but so far I've failed at trying to tear it apart on washboard roads. It's only about 3' longer than the Chinook and it has a side entry and a slide. Also, it weighs in at 10,700# and gets 11 mpg. I feel I outsmarted the Chinook, mostly, though it weighs about 1k less.

Sorry for getting off topic. As far as Chinooks go there is a guy on Expo who has been building one of these with the super rare side door entry. It's awesome!

Sure does look like a transfer case shifter. Kinda-sorta looks like front hubs, but it's hard to tell.

Definitely 4x4. What gives? These things used to never come around and that makes 3 or more I've seen lately.

This Chinook is in Albuquerque, I looked at it yesterday. $49,500. 4x4 conversion done by Salem - never heard of them but supposedly sent to them by Chinook. After looking at it, I decided to keep my E350.

Salem Kroger is one of the older 4x converters, gone now I think. I think they were fairly big in their day.

More on them:
