    E350 10ft Box Van

    Definitely. The only drawback I see with the F series is the overall height. Can definitely keep an E series sub 10ft clearance, looking closer to 12ft with the F series. The lack of pass through as well, but that issue is fixable.

    E350 10ft Box Van

    Thanks. I bought it as a unit. It was less than $31k out the door, the msrp on the chassis alone was over $32k. It was a 2016 special ordered and then buyer did not take delivery of it and sat on the lot for two years. It is a major pain to search for one, lots of time invested just scrolling...

    If you are after a rig that size it seems a great canvas.

    E350 10ft Box Van

    Thanks. Yes it is possible to have both seats swivel. In our last e-series we had both but rarely used the driver seat, so left it strictly for the cock pit in this build. You might opt for an electric shift transfer case to eliminate tripping over the shifter. E-series= Most capable back...

    We had a contract on a piece of land in Nandayure, Costa Rica. Covid caused that to dissolve. Costa Rica opens back up November 1, at which point we could continue to pursue our dream........

    E350 10ft Box Van

    Thanks!! Not really, it checked all the boxes and did it well. But the key being we bought the van new and out the door for $30,500, so it made it an easy win. We have been looking at the market and not much out there right now. Depending on what you could buy one for, I think a cab chassis...

    Flooring Options in Composite Panel Campers?

    No they were not glued down. I used the floating interlocking planks. Our visible floor was about 3x6, but the whole floor was covered and the cabinets were installed on top. If the sun was beating through the door they would swell and raise up off the floor pretty quickly and take much longer...

    Flooring Options in Composite Panel Campers?

    I have installed the floors first in the last two builds and won’t do it again. I have used vinyl planks, they are nice, durable and clean up well but they expand and contract more than I would have thought. Used cork on the last build and liked them a lot but no where near as durable as other...

    Is 4x4 really necessary for a cabover build?

    Totally dependent on what tricks your trigger when you travel. Some people like the beaten paths and there is no shortage of fun without 4x4. For us it is a requirement on an adventure mobile. We don’t purposely go 4-wheeling but the places we like to frequent require it. Sometimes just to get...

    E350 10ft Box Van

    I framed the ceiling fans with ply but used a generic construction adhesive for that, since they were mechanically fastened from the exterior as well. Ceiling panels were attached to the existing roof stringers. I scuffed the ply and walls, cleaned and then set with 5200, using load locks to...

    E350 Chinook Build

    I found one copy online, used $125! Worth it? yikes! I would mail you our copy if I had access to it. We were there in 2016, passed through Boise to do laundry. Next door was an outdoors shop with the newly released hot springs guide. Didnt really have Idaho on the radar and It ended up a...
