i've decided to sell my van so i can put the funds towards purchasing land where i can build a small home or park a tiny home on. i didn't end up using it nearly as much as i thought i would. i took it on a couple trips north in the summers, and on some shorter trips around florida (where i live). if you can't make it down here to pick it up, i'd be happy to drive it anywhere in the united states to deliver it to you (if you cover the cost of gas and airfare back).

i special ordered this van from Ford to be custom built last year. i did a lot of research and went on multiple test drives before deciding on this combo. i'm working on writing a long, detailed article on why i chose this van and can copy/paste the link to it later. it's a bit of a rare + unique van to have everything it has.

the van has less than 18,000 miles (as of end of december 2018). it does pretty well on gas mileage when loaded with gear + the build. the whole time i've had it, i've manually calculated the overall mileage to be just over 18 mpg, and have seen as high as 25.7 mpg with cruise control at 50 mph, around 24.5 mpg at 57 mph, and 21 mpg at 65 mph (this includes being stuck in stop-and-go traffic for a little while).

here's a quick tour of it. i'll be posting a much longer and more detailed video very soon (its got a couple hours of rendering to go and then will have a 22-24 hour long trip to make it to youtube's servers). if you're not interested in any or all of the build as you rather make your own floorplan layout (or use the van for work, a higher end build, etc), i can take everything out if you prefer.



the build itself has the following features:

-- Nature's Head Compost Toilet in separate bathroom area
-- plastic shower "tub" with wooden slats (with many coatings for protection) and drain plumbed in (needs shower curtain + solar shower bag to be hung)
-- full size dual kitchen sink (installed on real wood countertop) with small faucet that runs off a Whale Gusher Galley Mk3 foot pump (which works quite well and saves on water compared to an electric pump)
-- queen size bed memory foam mattress (a corner at the feet side has been cut (and can work as a cushion against the wall) to give more room for bathroom)
-- Dometic CFX-50US CoolFreeze Portable Electric Compressor Cooler Refrigerator/Freezer (holds 50L or 1.8 cu ft, has low power draw, and runs off 12V or 120V)
-- Nicro Ventilation 4" Day/Night Solar Vent model # N20804W (has rechargeable battery and a light)
-- breathable closet for hanging lots of clothes
-- removable hanging storage shelf
-- pantry / storage cabinet with three shelves
-- always on 12V outlets
-- string lights
-- curtains for privacy
-- lockable storage under bed
-- 26 gallon fresh water tank with rv-type water hatch for filling
-- access to interior from cab / sliding door / rear doors can be locked off when dropping off van for service, valet, etc. (the longer video will explain how this works and have a couple of photos)
-- the only holes drilled into any part of the van were for plumbing + ventilation (and were done by someone with professional plumbing + construction experience). the main structure is held in place at the cargo tie-down points (and some smaller parts are attached via rivnuts using pre-existing holes).

the cost to order the van alone with everything this one has would be $45k with tax/tag/fees/etc and would take several weeks to be built, a few weeks to be delivered, and then several more weeks to build out (and possibly a good number of weeks to research). this van is available today and would save you months of waiting and working. i'm open to reasonable offers from anyone interested in buying it. if the forum requires a price, i'll say $40k for it and its yours.

please share with anyone who might be interested.
