Vehicle I purchased this van new in November 2020 and built it intending to use it as a full-time digital nomad platform. I am selling it because I am joining the Peace Corps and will be out of the country for the next several years. The chassis is a 2019 Ram Promaster 2500, 159 wheelbase, high roof model with less than 7,000 miles. It comes with navigation, AC, cruise control, a backup camera, a 220-amp heavy duty alternator, power-folding mirrors, a “premium appearance group” (chrome grille and fog lights), an aftermarket class IV receiver hitch, and a dash cam. It is under the fully transferable bumper-to-bumper manufacturer warranty until November 2023. Appearance-wise, I worked hard to keep the van as stealthy as possible. The roof rack and solar apparatus is low profile, I did not add any windows (although it would be easy to install one in the sliding door), and I chose paint that mimics the ubiquitous Amazon van, for which it is mistaken regularly. Fully built out, the van has been averaging around 18.5mpg. Please note that the van was involved in a low-speed collision last year. All repairs were made by a certified shop using OEM parts. I have the dash cam video of the event and a full repair breakdown available. Electrical • 420 watts solar • 30amp Newpowa MPPT charge controller • 200aH BattleBorn LiFePo4 batteries • Sterling 60amp battery to battery charger • Simarine battery monitoring system which monitors not only battery state of charge, but also real time system production or discharge, temperatures (cabin, garage, and exterior), and barometric readings. The system can easily be expanded to monitor tank levels and vehicle tilt. • Tinned, stranded copper wire and marine grade connections used throughout the van I chose not to install an inverter or shore charger, but left space for both in the electrical cabinet and gauged the wiring to include a moderately sized inverter. I also stubbed a 110 outlet to the kitchen. 420 watts of solar is enough to keep the house battery charged almost all year. Water • Sureflo pump and accumulator • Instant hot water heater • 20 gallon fresh water tank and 5 gallon greywater tank. • Sink can drain either into the greywater tank or directly out of the van This is a 4 season build so all plumbing is inside the van Propane • Vented, sealed 20lb propane tank serves the instant hot water heater and the stove/oven • Hardwired LPG detector placed next to propane tank; CO detectors located throughout the van • Valve protected The propane system is valve protected. The system is shut off unless a motorized ball valve, which is controlled by a LED-illuminated switch near the stove, is energized. When cooking or using hot water, flip the switch to open the valve. Once the valve is de-energized (either by turning the switch off or shutting off the electrical system), it closes and the propane system is locked at the tank. Heater • 5kw Chinese diesel heater. Diesel tank is stored inside to prevent the diesel from gelling in the cold, but mounted so that it can swing out to fill externally, preventing fuel spills inside the van. This heater keeps the van toasty, sips diesel, and is almost indiscernibly quiet on low settings. The vent is located right beside the foot well of the couch and serves double duty as a footwarmer – it’s very cozy! Interior • 2 reading lights with a blue-light feature, 10 recessed ceiling lights, toe kick accent lighting, and under-cabinet kitchen strip lighting. All lights are dimmable LED. • At night, a custom, magnetized 100% blackout curtain partitions the cab of the van from the living area. With the curtain closed, absolutely no light escapes from the van’s cab • Standard full-size bed • Ample storage space throughout the interior and lots of space for toys in the garage • Composting toilet with a valve-controlled liquids tank that evacuates below the van • Dual zone ICECO fridge-freezer with an industry leading Danfoss compressor • 17x19x9 stainless steel undermount sink with drain assembly, bottom rinse grid and roll-up drying rack • 21” Greystone gas range with a stovetop cover and ignition switch • Five 12v USB outlets and one 60W USB-C outlet as well as a stubbed 110v kitchen outlet • Fully insulated with Havelock wool • Cabinet-grade Baltic Birch used throughout • Acacia butcher block counters finished with resin-impregnated tung oil (food safe) • Gorgeous cedar plank ceiling • 2 Maxxair fans; a 4-speed exhaust only fan is easily accessible in the front of the van, and a 10 speed, bi-directional, remote-controlled fan can act as a ceiling fan over the bed. With both fans on, one intake and one exhaust, you can get fantastic airflow through the cabin. Both fans can be operated in the rain
