Seller's Description

Camper Van ready to hit the road! Just passed PA safety and emissions inspection April 2022. 2003 Dodge Ram B150 Conversion Van with 5.2L “Magnum” V8 Engine. 123k miles. Remote key lock fob and two keys. I purchased this van in October 2020 with the intention of taking a road trip the following summer with my wife and two kids. I spent the next several months working out all the kinks and making sure it was a solid ride. I also added several key camper van features, such as a secondary battery system, comfortable bed with storage space beneath, and other things detailed below. Not overly fancy but you’ll see that everything is well thought out. Long story short, it worked out great! We spent a month driving out to Yellowstone, down to the Grand Canyon, Texas, and back home, without a single van issue! It’s a very comfortable ride and drives smoothly at 85 (I don’t drive faster than that). Seats are very comfy and the kids did not complain. We liked the fact that it’s a normal car length so we could go into cities and towns and easily park. We spent most of our time outdoors and was very cozy at night in there, especially with the ceiling lights. We even fit a fridge between the front seats (not included in this auction). There’s a bunch of storage space above the front seats where there used to be a tv. It’s not built out with shelves or anything but we’d store duffel bags in there. Also there’s space way up front in there for things you buy on the trip and don’t want until you get home. I put a hinge on the tv frame and fabric on the inside to make it look nice. It hasn’t fallen open, but you might want to add a latch as it’s held up by friction now. There are also six other small storage compartments with doors (one latch handle broke but still works). Some Work Done to Van Since I Got It: -new set of Cooper Adventurer A/T tires -full size new A/T spare and matching rim mounted underneath and new 2-ton trolley jack under passenger seat -ECU replaced -new Pioneer stereo with Bluetooth and microphone for phone calls -tune up -new water pump, thermostat and a bunch of hoses -new rear seatbelts (old ones weren’t catching) -regular oil changes every 3k miles (just had one) Camper Van Stuff: -roof vent with fan -secondary battery system with Renogy battery charger (recharges secondary battery as you drive once main battery is fully charged) -display for battery charge, also on/off switch to turn secondary battery system off tucked away in one of the ashtrays -several 12v usb and cigarette lighter type outlets all over the van -double 3-prong electrical outlet attached to inverter -all interior lights, fan and outlets run on secondary battery so you can leave doors open and use power when van is off -windows tinted just right, not too dark and not too light. Three different darknesses from front to back, darkest in rear. -rear bug screen that has magnetic snaps in middle, velcro at top -all three sliding windows (lower part of large side windows) work and have screens - one screen I made myself since I couldn’t find a replacement, a little homemade but works Main Bed: Very well thought out design thanks to the assistance of a carpenter friend. The entire rear bed and frame can be removed in a few minutes with the removal of a few screws! Very handy when you want to transport something, or just when you aren’t camping and want to remove the bed. The frame is lightweight but sturdy and has an IKEA queen size foam mattress. It had to be cut down a little lengthwise to fit, so keep that in mind if you are tall. Blankets and pillows not included. Mattress cover just cleaned and saw minimal use (just our one-month trip and we were staying in hotels every 3-4 nights). Lots of storage space underneath. We used milk crates under there to store our things. EXTRA STUFF: I will include this stuff as bonus material, only if you want it. Other Beds: I built 2 cots out of PVC pipe and canvas, with IKEA foam mattresses. I suspended one cot above the rear bed, hanging from straps attached to the seatbelt bolts. We’d store the other cot on the rear bed during the drives, and then hang it above the front seats on hooks that are supported my the metal frame of the van. A little tight up there but my 14-year-old daughter fit! Our ten year old slept on the rear bunk. I can include these cots if you want them. You’ll have to get your own carabiners to hang them. Other stuff: I have all the parts that were originally in the van, like the rear bench and mounting brackets, rear stereo system, etc. I also put together a water system but we never used it since we stayed at campgrounds. I can include those parts if you want as well (foot pump, hoses, faucet, sink). We’re sad to see our van go but we don’t have plans to road-trip again and hopefully someone else can enjoy it!
