Up for sale is my 2000 Quigley 4x4 Super Trak Van with 68,XXX. Miles $32,500. OBO
I customized this van for extended off the grid adventure. Its capacity has enabled me to access and remain in very remote areas for weeks at a time. I can leave the camper knowing my equipment is secure, and come back to cold beer, and steaks for the grill. It's principally configured to serve as your larder/secure storage space, while you pitch camp beside it. It's has the 4.3L V6, which is better on gas, but with enough power to get you where you need to go. I bought it off a guy out west who used it for hunting, It had 35,000. miles on it then. The drive train works as it should. It starts up easy, shifts smooth, accelerates and brakes well, goes in and out of 4x4 with no problem. It will go 90mph down the highway if you want, and run all day long at 65-75. You get the best mileage at 55-65. I have never had to add any fluids, just change them at regular intervals. The body is not real straight, but it's solid, and there is no rust on it. The chassis is in very good condition with very minimal surface rust, here and there.
Here are the specs, and you can read more about it at the end.

About the van and the build.
I built this camper out like a yacht. I stripped out all the previous customization, except the propane tank. I then painted out the floor and lower panels and doors with Rustoleum. The ½'' plywood floor was sealed & painted, then secured down over an acoustic underlay. Next I insulated the interior with Dow 1'' rigid polystyrene foam, glued in with urethane adhesive. The ceiling got an extra ½'', and the panels around the bed are insulated with soft thick Armaflex marine insulation, crazy expensive. I then lined the interior of the high top, cabinets, and other areas with FRP panel, which adds to insulation quality and is easy to keep clean.
Many High Tops rust out where they are bedded down, so I took extra precautions and put this one down like a deck on a yacht. First I refinished the paint from the rain gutters up with epoxy primer and Imron topcoat. I then bedded the High Top down with 3M 5200 adhesive and SS screws.
The cabinets are a high quality, solid oak and veneered plywood construction, screwed and glued together with urethane adhesive. They have been built to fit the side walls, utilizing space, and are fitted with marine latches and heavy duty roller bearing slides.
I configured the interior to stow several boards, including long boards, but still enable you to move around comfortably. The High Top gives you 6'0'' of headroom at the front, and 6' 3'' at the back. It has a reinforced hatch with two deadbolts at the rear for getting the Longboards in, and it's great for ventilation as well. You can easily stow a 10'6'' longboard, maybe up to 11'0'' depending on the shape, and stack another 3-4 shorter boards on top. The bed in back is 6'1'' long, and 43'' at it widest. The mattress is a high quality 6'' thick Latex twin. I'm 6'1'' and I sleep fine back there when it's not hot, great when it's cold. The portability of the mattress works great for the tent, no cheesy air mattress.
Between the massive 255 Amp Hr. deep cycle battery, and 240 watts of panels, I have rarely had to plug in. It runs the fridge full time with power to spare, for lighting, fans, laptop, and more. I ran oversized cabling, for better efficiency, and the panels are mounted on hinges, so you can tilt them to be more efficient. The system works so good, I forget it's there.
The removable security partition is made of 4''x1'' extruded aluminum tubing, which slides into a heavy duty channel built into the top and bottom of the van body. The 7 sections store under the bed, and are quickly and easily slid into place. It's a very secure arrangement.
I finished up the project by giving the van a full Imron paint job. I repainted it again in 2012 with Awlgrip, when a new windshield went in. In the end, I only did the front half, and touched up the rest. The color match is not perfect. These are tough paints, they don't need waxing, they last years longer than anything else.
I have put over 30,000 miles on this vehicle in the aprox 10 years I have had it. I fitted it out in Florida, and then drove it down to the Pacific coast of Mexico for a surf adventure. I used it off and on down there for a couple years, then drove it back up to Colorado, where it sat in a barn for several years. I started using it again in 2012, exploring around the Rockies in the summers, and then drove it back down to Florida in October. The V6 does not have the power of the V8, but it's gotten me wherever I wanted to go, from Mexico's remote pacific coast, to the steepest rocky mountain passes. For me, the compromise in power, is a good trade for the extra gas mileage.
