***MOUNATIN READY*** NEW All-terrain tires, water heater, car battery, insulated pipes, and water/battery heating pads. Just inspected by a Ford Dealership! If you are looking for a van that is functional but doesn’t sacrifice aesthetics and comfort, then look no further. My partner and I have put all of our blood, sweat, and tears into this build. We have owned this van for 5 years and this is the 3rd and final iteration. After each trip we took in this van, I took notes, figured out what did and didn’t work, and designed this last build to be as functional as possible for the adventurer, the nomad, and/or the city dweller. You’ll find so much character in this build and so many little details that will make you continue to fall in love with Bandit over and over. We are sad to see Bandit go, but we are excited for the next owner’s adventures! VAN DETAILS This is a 2015 2WD Ford Transit 250. The van has just under 90k miles. I have taken the van for routine checkups, oil changes, and had any recall notices fixed. I am willing to pay for an inspection for anyone who is seriously interested in purchasing to help ease any worries about the mechanical aspects of the van. This is the Mid-Roof model with an interior standing height of 5’6″. I am 6′ and can operate in the space comfortably. The benefit of the mid-roof model is that it truly drives like an SUV or large car. It will fit in normal parking spaces and is a breeze to drive in the city. This van can accommodate up to 2 people and has been tested and approved with 2 humans and 2 dogs for extended periods of time. SOLAR/ELECTRICAL: • RENOGY 200 AMP/HR Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery.
