Class C Conversion to 4x4
Hope this finds you all well ;-)
Me: all good, baby girl started Kindergarten last week
Closed my shop, moved online, went broke LOL, but happy as a full time dad
We have a paid for Majestic 19ft, Class C, Ford E350
Layout and everything works for us
Not the coolest (my '86 Westy) not the most macho (My SMB "Wilson")
but this is my 14th rig and happy with it.
We live in So Cal, use it 2-3 days a week daycamping at the beach
We see ALOT of rigs, i have poked my head in quite a few
Paid for rig (important, i have to support TWO households in So Cal, ours and Ex-wife LOL)
E350 with 150,000 miles, all stock
Upgrades in the works, two awnings, Monsta Liner lower skirt
Second battery, solar, all in under $5,000
10 mpg if i am gentle, same as my 4x4 SMB BTW with V10
NOT suitable for many of the Boondock places I need to share with
Plus our Soon to be Annual Summer Road Trip to National Parks, BFE and beyond ;-)
most fixes under $3,000 but will not get me to BLM land up "that trail"
Cost when done turnkey (cant do myself) @ $25,000
Weldtec doesn't do Ford
Agile i am not sold on
Chris (Ujoint) has done alot of Class C, but is East coast and needs rig a month....
any other RELIABLE turnkey guys in West Coast that have done Class C?
any suggestions (keep i mind i am keeping rig, good or bad)
Thank you in advance
Rob & Ellie
feel free to ask further questions or say hi ;-)
