Seller's Description

Newly converted van designed and built by architectural designer and engineer couple. We lived full time in our own converted (Astro) van for several years from 2015 to 2019 (not this van), and we designed this one with all of the upgrades we would have wished for based on our experience on the road. This build is brand new, we’ve just taken it on a two short test trips to work out any kinks. Vehicle: - 2004 E-250 - V8 / 5.4L engine, RWD - 86k miles - Clean title in hand - Tow hitch - Leaf spring lift to increase clearance. This van can handle rough dirt roads. - New starter battery - Boss Bluetooth 9” touchscreen w/ backup camera, MP3 compatible, AM/FM receiver - Full health starter battery (replaced <1 year ago) - Power locks and windows - AC blows cold - Hauler Racks aluminum roof rack - 4 new tires installed Dec 2021 - *note that the heater and AC listed in "features" are the ones in the vehicle cab. In the living portion, there is a fan and passive ventilation options. Build features: - Living: - Full-sized bed converts within seconds to double-sided couch without having to rearrange cushions or re-make bedding every night (new customized Linenspa 5” memory foam mattress) - Convenient side-door access to sink for easy washing, water jug refill, and grey water emptying.

Cooking set-up is maneuverable and portable. Can be used in-place (inside van with fan on) while sitting at the table, at sliding door, or anywhere outside. - Large upper food/kitchen storage drawer - Optional middle drawer (can be removed if storing a fridge or cooler) - Large lower drawer designed for optional cooler (also wired for optional 12v chest style fridge— not included in current build).
