Seller's Description

This van was purchased new and built out by the first owner in 2016. She sold it to me in January 2021. I rebuilt the furniture inside to fit my specific needs. I'm 6'1" and I was working remotely, so needed a long bed and a standing Zoom-ready workstation. I lived in the van full time from April to October and had a great time traveling to the west coast and back...but got a job offer in NYC that I couldn't turn down. Now want to pass the van on to someone who can make full use of it and go on adventures. THE VEHICLE: 2016 Ram Promaster 1500 with 87000 miles Automatic 18' length; 6'6" width; 9'4" clearance Back-up camera, cruise control Rear windows, sliding side door, over-cab storage Never been in an accident New brakes as of August 2021 Stealthy, only the solar panels and vent fan give it away as a camper After market alarm system THE BUILD: [Everything is DIY, functional but not Instagram pretty, you will want to do some renovating and customizing, it's part of the fun of van life!] Cabin: Insulation, masonite wall panels, vinyl plank flooring. Bed: Murphy bed for extra long twin mattress, storage cabinet underneath. Galley: propane stove with two burners, sink, faucet with foot pump. Standing desk: vertical wooden wall panel for mounting lights/mics/webcam, large desktop surface, 15 drawers, storage space underneath. Electrical: Two 100W solar panels, connected to engine for ambient charging while driving, charge controller unit, ten circuit fuse box, AC inverter, overhead lights, vent fan, refrigerator. Cab: Passenger seat swivel mount ACCESSORIES INCLUDED: Propane tank, approx 25% full. Two five-gallon water jugs (refillable at Home Depot or Walmart). Carbon monoxide detector. Seat covers, steering wheel cover. Custom window and windshield covers, insulating, blackout, magnetic attachment. Custom bug screens for front windows and back door, magnetic attachment. Small lockbox with combination lock and tether. Swivel wall mount for tv or monitor, wall mount for microphone arm. Broom, snow brush, cell phone dash mount, US Atlas. White board, assorted wall hooks. Electric water pump (not currently hooked up, prefer the foot pump). BAD NEWS, GOOD NEWS I think the two 110 amp hour lead acid batteries are on their last legs. They have had five years of regular use and aren't holding a charge very well. The upside is that you get to choose what batteries you want to install. A lead acid battery might cost about 250, going lithium ion will cost more like 650, but there are many options. I can show the van on Saturdays at any station along the Hudson Metro North line. If coming from the city, I recommend taking the 1 train to Marble Hill and switching to the commuter line. If you're not local, I can give Zoom tours of the van on Saturdays. Also, depending on timing and location, I might be able to deliver the van to the buyer--one last road trip.
