No one could be further than Western Australia from the nearest SMB dealer/builer,
so don't let distance put you off.
My project 08 Ford e350 extended 6.0 started as a white van for us$7,300 on Ebay
Motors in February 2014. Back then the Aussie $ was worth more than the US$.
I have wanted a Ford Sportsmobile V8 diesel eb for the last 4 years.
When you get you Ford 4x4 diesel Sportsmobile, it will take you almost anywhere
you want it to go, with your sleeping & eating ready, within a few minutes.
I prefer Propane heating & cooking, chepest & best over diesel alternatives.
Get a larger 200amp Alternator installed. Have 2 x 4D batteries, solar panel,
Magnum 2000 series pure sine wave inverter/ converter and then you can have
a very handy Microwave to go with Icy Cold 4 cubic ft Norcold Refrigerator.
Have Run Cool vents installed on bonnet for Extra Air flow.
Best floor plan is the eb50 layout, that has wide forward facing sofa-bed.
I have a 012 Ram 3500 crew laramie drw longbed 4x4 diesel with 014 Eagle Cap 1160 dual slide with sofa Truck Camper, very nice, luxurious, but it's just a road
warrior. The Sportsmobile takes to all those places a Truck Camper can't
still with power, water, toilet, shower, etc.
The building journey is great too & you learn a lot.
