2016 Ram Tradesman with Four Wheel Campers Hawk Flatbed camper

I try not to post non vans, but I saw this advertised FS in an e-mail I received. No affiliation, other than I've given some business to the company that's selling this. Well equipped IMO, and a price to go along with that (they're asking $150K). I'm only including a small amount of info from the ad.

I like it...a lot!
Something like this sure makes you question your current set-up. In the end though, I believe I have considerably more storage available with my Van. IMO Its also hard to give up the convenient full interior access the Van offers (even with the top down).

Dope. Seems like it is 50k extra for those stickers and big tires.

I've been around vans long enough to know how the options quickly bring a rig to outrageous prices. No idea if the asking price is reasonable or not, but that camper alone starts at just under $30K (comparatively, I think it makes a $12K- $15K pop top conversion seem way over-priced), and the flat-bed conversion is over $15K.

Herb makes some good points, $150.000 seems a little high, I'm surprised they chose a gasser for this build instead of the Cummins, I had a 4 Wheel Granby and always thought it was overpriced for what it was, a $100.000 maybe.

I would like to think you could do a new one like that for $!50,000. But if you need instant gratification, this one is ready to go right now I guess.

That's wishful thinking

For the same reason, never add up what you've spent on your rig in front of your spouse!

I’m building one like it right now. New F450 diesel crew cab 4x4 with a 4” lift, 37” tires, pop top flatbed camper with the bed over the cab, I’ll have $130 when it’s all done. The van was great, the amount of room in the van sucked. The van by myself and wife was semi ok on space unless you get caught in a 2 day rain storm but when you throw in 2 60 pound dogs in the mix there just isn’t enough room. You guys with kids I don’t know how you do it. But the weather is a lot different between east coast and west coast.

West coast people use the van to stay out of the rain or as a place to sleep. It's not humid and typically cools off at night. If you plan to spend time inside the vehicle, a van is a bit rough.
