Please note:
This was a passion project with significant hours researching, planning and full-time building. We are not professional builders and the price is listed to reflect this. We have prepaid an A service inspection which is transferable to the new owners. The vehicle is currently located in Toronto but plated for BC, as it is awaiting a new DPF; fully covered under warranty. Comes with everything you need, ready to hit the road on your next adventure.
