08 Mercedes/Dodge 3500 144" Dually 116,000 miles, I bought it at 93,000. The guy before bought it at 84,000. He repaired normal mechanical things, changed the fuel filter, oil filter, tightened the power steering hose, new turbo intake silenter, intake gasket, added catch can. It previously was a cleaning van with hot water tank, has been bed lined on whole interior. The previous owner who converted it was a body and paint specialist of fifty years. It had a rust spot on roof rear section, and it was repaired with starboard for extra support and left rear wall. He repaired with panels and stranded filler, all rust neutralized. Some underneath rust was repaired with neutralizer and completely re under coated. New exhaust from particulate filter back. Slider and rear doors replaced. Complete repaint with rust inhibitors. Installed 15 gal grey waste tank on driver side under shower and mounted 15 gal fresh water in spare tire location. For insulation he used 1/2 in. polyisocyanurate on 1/4 underlay against metal interior structure. He believed putting insulation in and against metal inter structures invites moisture and rust. Boxed in wheel wells with same. Nice and quiet while giving air flow behind insulation(think thermos bottle). Then covered in ship-lap (walls) and cedar planks roof and doors. Floor done with hickory premium vinyl 1/2 in underlay. The upper cabinets made of 3/4 in maple and 1/2 in white pine with 1" oak doors. Inside you'll find a 110v 5000watt A/C unit built in all braced with 1/8" slotted angle. The whole unit is inside, outside all you see is the vent. The routing of the air intake and output makes it work even on 100 degree days. Also small microwave. The shower/toilet, was built of 3/4in maple ply. Compost toilet made of normal DIY 5 gallon bucket with a urinal diverter and vent kit surfaced with waterproof tile. Shower pan 36"x 24" acrylic. Pause on shower head works great. The passenger seat has a swivel. The space behind drivers seat works great for storage for window sun shield and insulated panels for side and rear windows. 12 volts 400 AH Lithium with battery controllers. (4) 100 watt solar panels on roof. Fantastic fan, renolgy 30 amp controller. With bright sun 20 amps charge here in sunny states. Normal 14.4 volts charging, floats at 13.4. Have 3000 watt inverter external controller. You can live on just house batteries for lights, tv, charging phones, inverter for coffee. TV 12 volts, has a little antenna that has received up to 32 stations at once. The A/C will run on inverter for about eight hrs. There are dual 12v usb outlets under both sides cabinets in front and back. Dimmer switch for over head and under cabinetry lights. Has some fun LED lights with custom color selection and motions. Stereo is a touch screen with android and iphone compatibility. GPS and BT all the new things hooked up to a Rockville 1600 amp. Alpines in door. RECK 15" bass with tweeter. The main counter has an awesome sink and faucet. Teak top and folding side table and teak base for propane 2 burner cook top. When slider is open there is a drop down table for extra work space. Booth seats in back are 75" long x 25"wide. Middle section turns it into a 75” long by 68” wide bed. Very easy to convert I store the insert under the passenger side booth cushion. On the back doors is the spare and storage box 48"x14" (great for golf clubs or folding chairs) Hitch 2" this 3500 rated for 7500 tow. Hauled an 18” aluminum boat like it wasn’t even there. For the engine it's a 3.0 Diesel, 5 speed. Trans has been gone thru, all new solenoids, plate, and connector. New fluid didn't drain the converter. Works great, new fluid in rear end, the previous owner found a vibration in rear end but easily fixed it with dynamic balance. New radiator and fan replaced this summer. My best fuel mileage was coming back down from the Smokv mountains going 65 getting 21 MPG, on flat. If I keep it under 65 I can consistently get 18 - 20. I’ve had transit buddies brag about 15! I bought this last October and took it to Utah and Colorado for 2 weeks. Took it to eastern Canada for 1 month in late spring. I made coffee every morning. Personally my first van, and I could not have asked for a better setup. If you really wanted you could do this thing full time or have a very comfortable and portable weekend getaway. I love this van but we are on to new adventures seeking 4x4 and high clearance ability for Alaska in 2024. Any questions let me know. Will do FaceTime walkthroughs for serious buyers. Delivery is an option. This is a perfect setup you don’t wanna miss!!
