Ram produces a variety of full-size models that are a great fit for overlanding with their 2500 variant being one of the most popular. It’s therefore a regular sight on our forum with recent offerings including this 2015 AEV build with a Norweld canopy, a 2005 with a Four Wheel Camper, and a 2020 with a Hudson Bay Edition Camper. These trucks are favored for their long-lived Cummins’ diesel motors, impressive capability, and generous payload (up to 3,497-pounds). These credentials make the 2500 a great platform for heavier camper builds as showcased by TFL Offroad and CJC Offroad. In addition, the Ram can be heavily modified and optimized for backcountry exploration. Today’s low mileage (53,500-miles) 2018 Ram 2500 has to be one of the nicest to date; showcasing desirable upgrades and topped with a Vagabond Outdoors camper.
From the Seller:
“Total modification costs not including tax or labor: $43,619. KBB Value: $38,000. Total cost if you were to build it yourself before tax and labor: $81,619. I am asking $67,500 for the vehicle as is, not open to trades. If interested in only the camper, the price is $16,000 and swap cost will be on your end (the camper is 2 months old). For a turn-key expedition vehicle that will outperform any AEV vehicle built in their history, I believe the pricing is very fair.”
