Off-grid, low mileage, non-toxic materials, flexible layout – conversion in progress

2019 Ford Transit 350 DRW – high roof, extended length

We are motivated to sell. Make an offer! We may be able to deliver almost anywhere in the US!

This van is perfect for those wanting the van life but who are intimidated by the electric and propane systems – all of that is done for you (and approved by electricians!), but the interior is ready for the layout and finishing of your choice!

We built this van with a lot of love and attention, intending to live in it, but we had a baby, then moved, and life plans changed. We built it to be off-grid, low-EMF, and low-VOC, including lots of premium product choices that don’t off gas or smell terrible. We are really sad to sell it before turning it into our dream van, but we just don’t have the time to finish it and aren’t able to live in it full-time as we planned.

This van has a TON of solar power and a huge propane tank (and heater) mounted underneath – perfect for those wanting to take it off grid in four seasons. You can also connect to shore power to charge the batteries. We have mounted a 4’ CB radio for easy convoy communication (not pictured).

Because it’s dual rear wheel, it can take a lot of weight, so you do not have to be worried about what additions you’re adding.

It is in-progress, so the inside layout is customizable to fit what you want and need. We are willing to share our plans for finishing it with you if you’re interested or curious. We even have many of the materials purchased (including the refrigerator, stove, sink, wood stove, shower pan, wall and ceiling boards, insulation, bed frame, etc.) and ready to install into the van if you are interested!

Details: 2019 Ford Transit van (less than 3k miles), model 350 HR DR Cargo Van, high roof, extended length, dual wheel rear axle, 2-wheel drive, gas engine, 10,360-lb DRW GVWR, white

Assessed value: $100k + (we can provide assessment documents), but we’re asking much less. We are motivated to sell, so you can make an offer! The van itself is worth about $40k. We’ve put A LOT of time and money into this van. The electrical system and the windows alone cost us almost $20k!
