wtb: 4x4 van / advice
I've got a 2wd 2006 e-150 Chateau with Sportsmobile penthouse top, and need to be 4wd.
I'm considering the 3 options:
1) convert the E-150 to 4wd.
2) buy 4wd, and swap my existing penthouse onto it.
3) buy a complete 4wd van with a penthouse top now.
I need the penthouse top and full-width bed downstairs (need to sleep 5). My current van is stock Chateau except for bench->bed in the very back, so it seats 7. That's the way we like it (no galley, no sink, no cabinets-- just stock+bed).
The best answer would be to sell my current rig, and buy from Sportsmobile a 4x4 with penthouse, but I'm not willing to wait until November 2021 to take delivery.
Let me know if you have a 4x4 van to sell, or a 4x4 van with a penthouse top, and minimal cabinetry downstairs.
(or warnings / encouragement on converting my E-150 to 4x4. IT's got 185k miles on it, but is in great shape).
