Greetings from Springfield, Mo.
Just bought a 2011 E-150 cargo to "camperize", and looking forward to learning about the tips and tricks from this community.
Back in '99 I bought a new F-150, 4x4 XLT extended cab, loaded at tat time and it was a great truck, it had 86xxx miles on it and shined like new. But it was also just getting old and sold it to my neighbor a few months ago......I was kicking myself for selling it and had to see it everyday.
Bought a 2001 Astro AWD, for a mild off road van to build a camper, it didn't take long to figure out that it wasn't big enough for the 2 of us and our 70 pound barker. Traded it this past week in on the Ford and I'm very pleased.
I'm considering the 4x4 thing, but I took my truck everywhere I wanted or needed to go and rarely used the 4x4, so I need to justify that $$$$.
I'd like to pop the top and I'm going to Pick N Pull later to see what I can scrounge up, hope there is a good top there.
I'll try to learn how to post pics, I know folks want to see pics and not read my babbling mind, I'll save that for a build thread.
Looking forward to the experience here and thanks in advance for the guidance on our vans.
