The E-350 is a favorite for overland builds with recent expedition-ready examples, including this 2001 UJOR 4×4, a 2011 Quigley 4×4, and a 2003 Quadvan 4×4. These rigs are sought out for their long-lived motors and drivetrains, comfortable cab, generous interior space versus modest external dimensions, and excellent aftermarket support. Crucially, the Ford enjoys access to readily available 4WD conversions from the likes of Quigley 4×4, Quadvan, Salem Kroger, Agile Offroad, Advanced 4WD systems, and, indeed, Sportsmobile. Subsequently, this 2WD commercial workhorse can be seamlessly transformed into a go-anywhere rolling home. Hence, there’s no shortage of drool-worthy camper builds with offerings from the Drivingline, From My View, and Michaelrossssss. If you’d like a better idea of the E-350’s backcountry performance, then check out the adventures of Monster Ford and Revere Overland. Today’s 2006 offering has covered just 118,700 miles and features premium modifications, a well-equipped camper interior, and a desirable Sportsmobile 4WD conversion.
From the Seller:
“It gets 15 MPG which is pretty good for a 10,000-pound rig. I can completely slide my 13.5′ kayak inside and shut the back door. This is very convenient for when I want to just go down to the marina for a quick paddle. There is less packing and unpacking because all my essential camping gear lives in the van full-time. I just need to throw in some food when I want to go on a quick trip to the desert or mountains. It has great ground clearance and is very capable off-road. I can go almost anywhere my friends in their Tacomas go provided it will fit.”
