1995 Built Out Van Ford Econoline E150 Campervan
Ruby is ready to take you anywhere you want to go. I’ve driven her around the Olympic peninsula and wouldn’t hesitate to do it again. Ruby has everything you need to be self sufficient while getting weird in some remote forest (except a pooper and shower).
Where this van lacks in presence of the most overrated convenience the modern world has developed, it makes up for in style with the wood-panelling and convenience with the chest refrigerator/freezer, sink, and cozy bed.
The electric water pump will deliver whatever liquid you decide to put into its 6 gal holding tank, out of the faucet for your drinking pleasures. The propane tank will ignite the burner on the cutest table top stove to make that Pinterest perfect coffee montage in the morning.
This baby also has 12V 200W Solar panel with a 100 Amp Hour AGM battery with a 1000W Renogy Inverter allowing your computers to be charged if you need to sell some Bitcoin or MLM essential oils to make your trip last even longer. The solar panels will keep these batteries charged even in the most remote IG destinations.
