1999 Ford Ranger Camper :: Classifieds

Ford Ranger

I have a lot of appreciation for off-the-shelf overland builds, but it’s hard to beat the charm of one-of-one rigs. Each offering is as unique as the owner and often incorporates ingenious features not seen in mass-produced alternatives. Necessity is the mother of invention, so it’s hardly surprising that some of the best overlanding builds are conceived by adventurous travelers testing their vehicles and equipment in the wild. Cue today’s 1999 Ford Ranger (143,000 miles), which showcases a plethora of premium upgrades and a bespoke camper. This is not simply a proof of concept; it’s recently completed an epic journey from Canada to Chile and is now available in Peru for its next adventure. In a world where dialed overland rigs often fetch the best part of $100,000 this proven platform represents impressive value at $26,800.
