2015 Ford Transit MR LWB 3.7l For sale $59K

Hey all! I wanted to post up a van we have for sale. You may (or may not) know about our company ROAMERICA. We have been renting Camperized vans here in Portland OR for about 5 years now. Originally we started exclusively with renting SMB's but over the last 2 years we have brought production in house so we can keep up with demand and build vans specifically for our audience. Our focus is to build Ford Transits in the MR LWB configurations, and will soon have a 4x4 E-series available as well. The response we have received from renters has been incredible, so much so that we have had customers wanting to buy their van after their trip. Because of the overwhelming interest, in spring of 2020, we are launching Axis Vehicle Outfitters which will focus directly on building and selling our Transit and E-series platforms. We are focused on building vans that are durable, simple, and affordable so we can help get more people into vans and out exploring.

Below is the first van we have for sale to the general public and would love to hear your feedback.

Looks gorgeous, and in my opinion, Scalf designing and installing the electrical components definitely adds credibility, and quite likely some actual financial value, to your van. GLWS.

I was in the Roamerica shop this Summer and had a chance to see some of the build work they're doing. The materials and components I saw were all top notch... as was the design and attention to detail. Great people doing some cool stuff.

What’s the crash rating like on the rear seats? Set up looks sweet, but I worry about rear seat occupants if there isn’t a large plate bolted underneath holding onto those lap belts.

Thru bolted into the crossmembers with (4) Grade 8 1/2" bolts/washers and plates to distribute the weight.

Awesome. I really like your vans. Maybe next time I’m in the market I’ll check one out.
