2007 Chevy Express Sportsman/Off Grid Escape Van
Must sell, planning on leaving the country in 30 days. This is your opportunity to get the very best deal on a perfectly built van. Will consider any reasonable offer. Call me (816) 446-3466.
I converted this van, and perfected it over three years living off grid. It is designed for extended periods of self-sufficiency.
No fancy woodwork or gadgets— this vehicle is all about functionality and weight control.
I would drive this another three years confident of no major issues. Selling with reluctance because I have to go overseas.
There’s lots of built vans on the market, if you look into this subject closely you will see that most have a few very common build mistakes/bad space tradeoffs. This one has none.
If you’re an outdoorsman, off-grid enthusiast, or simply want a ready-to-go escape vehicle when the shit hits the fan, this is your vehicle.
