Hightop 7.3L E350 with Ujoint 4x4

It's not mine, nor is it a sportmobile. But it's pretty close and somebody should buy it!

1997 Ford E350 Diesel 4x4 Adventure Van

Van's for sale! Some features:

Although you could add seats or build your own interior, the van is fully kitted for 2 person adventure travels:
Double bed with massive storage underneath (we did 4 bikes and 4 surfboards)
Bed comes out in about 5 minutes for hauling motorcycles/ large cargo
Cabinets with lots of storage on both sides, above and below the bed
Huge storage above driver/ passenger seats
Kitchenette with propane stove (removable for outside use)
All interior construction is in tubular steel and marine ply
Engel 35qt fridge on slide
LED lighting throughout
Auxillary battery/ 100 amp hours (securely mounted between frame rails) with manual or automatic isolation for charging alongside the 2 stock starting batteries--wired with 1/0 marine cable
Fan, lighting, fridge and outlets are wired through the auxillary battery, fused and switched

I'm sure I'm forgetting some items. This van has taken me and my fiancÚ all over California and throughout most of baja without issue. The 4x4 has saved our butts a few times in sand. It's a simple functional platform to get you and all of your toys wherever you like to go. Cruises at 75MPH and gets 15-18MPG. It's been used, and it's not as pretty as the Sportsmobiles I see around (hence the lower price- even with lower miles). There are a few dents, there are scratches, and imperfections I haven't cared to fix. It could use general upkeep, but its mechanics are in prime condition. Just back from 1500 miles to baja without a hitch. The interior layout has served us perfectly--it's wonderful for two people and a lot of toys, but it's not an upholstered motorhome--I think of it as utilitarian. There is a row of seating to go along if the van's future owner likes. This van is driven once a week to keep its systems good condition. It's never been my daily driver- it holds the driveway down until it's time to load up and go somewhere. . . which is something I'm doing less and less.

I'm asking $29500 or best offer--no trades, cash only. If you're interested, please leave a phone number, and I'll get back to you promptly.Thanks for looking!
