What a cool "macho" camper that would make - difficult to contain my imagination. Those storage boxes sure would make life easier.

Agree, but that thing is big. Forest trails would not be it's friend.

Hmmmm, I just watched the video that the seller linked in the ad (to a similar one that he sold). Now I like it even more, especially the van/truck body interior. I wish he included a video of the storage box interiors though.

I agree Herb, that thing could be epic. And for that price it sure seems like you’d be getting a lot of machine.

Bwahahaha. Cool body, but no way would I pick that engine. It's too SLOOWWW, and that year would have CATs problematic ACERT system (basically, excessive EGR combined with a half-baked hydraulic injection system like the 6.0 PSD).

But is it weird that someday I want to build-out a Freightliner Argosy as a totoerhome? Like this, but with less red:


I even found an AWD retrofit: https://eztracawd.com/ez-trac-product-information/

I didn't click the link but it looks like a standard USFS fire crew hauler.
