Re: Van on a serious budget & a new member

Kinda digging that possibility! I love the dedication and the creativity of the member mentioned on this thread, but I maybe convinced to buy something semi ready to go. I should have mentioned that I live in a 150-160 year old civil era log cabin that I have been battling with for the last 6 years and am the dad of a two year old so working in the cold in the gravel drive has lost its charm to say the least. So much to consider.
I have bought several 2WD SMB's for under $10K including a 1996 RB51 Penthouse for $3,000.00 - it is in good condition with everything working and runs great with 160K miles on the 351. I am converting it to a long travel 4X4 "Prerunner" and Rock Crawler that will see all kinds of abuse and rock rash.

I bought a beautiful SMB with low 88K miles a few weeks ago for under $8,000.00. This one is getting converted to 4X4 and going to Baja with us to stay and use in a new business.

I got out bid on another good deal by another member on this forum by $12.00 just the other day. We are going to be converting it to 4X4 for him and he will have a nice SMB.

There are deals to be found... keep looking!
