2010 Ford E-350 4×4 Sportsmobile :: Featured Classified

E-350 4x4

I’ve lived in my 1986 Vanagon Syncro for the best part of a decade and often “joked” that the Ford E-350 4×4 is the van it could’ve been. In short, the latter provides many of the same desirable attributes as my ol’ Volkswagen but offers many distinct improvements. First and foremost, the E-350 is a great size and finds a sweet spot between an overland outfitted 4WD or a mid-size truck camper and a much larger full-size truck or expedition vehicle. Subsequently, you get sufficient payload for a camper build-out and generous amenities, but it remains comfortable to drive and does not restrict access to most trails. Powered by a 6.0-liter Power Stroke diesel, it has plenty of grunt for its size, and today’s offering incorporates a 47-gallon fuel tank for impressive range. Furthermore, the availability of both OEM and aftermarket parts is extensive, which ensures that owners can tailor these vehicles to their objectives. Finally, the E-350 enjoys access to 4WD conversions, which turn this 2WD commercial icon into a truly capable all-terrain vehicle (especially true of today’s offering that incorporates a limited-slip rear differential and front locker). Today’s low-mileage 2010 Ford E-350 4×4 (77,400 miles) is one of the nicest we’ve showcased and was professionally built by Sportsmobile West. It features a well-equipped camper interior, an electric Penthouse pop-top, and a wide array of premium upgrades.

From the Seller:

“We have tent camped and owned truck campers, trailers, and motor homes over the last 40 years, and the Sportsmobile has been our favorite. It is so easy to set up camp, go to the grocery store, and drive around town, and has been used as a daily driver when one of our cars was in the shop. It is truly the most rugged versatile vehicle with the Sportsmobile 4×4 conversion, which includes the Dana Pro Rock front axle and the fully gear-driven Atlas transfer case. We have never worried about being stuck in snow or mud. Then you add the ARB locking front differential and the Ford rear limit slip rear differential there was never anxiety about going off the beaten path to find those one-of-a-kind secluded campsites. Being self-contained, the solar always provided enough charging for our lights and refrigerator when at camp and we never use a portable generator. Having a single fuel for heat, water, and the vehicle means no worries about propane.”
