I can't quite remember. Cheap. 18-25k CAD? Not too sure. Money wasn't important. Hitting the road with nothing holding us back was more important. I maybe lost 5k on the whole thing? But had a fire truck for a year so its all fine.
I'll have another truck.
Well, all things considered... If you find a nicely converted School bus or other vehicle, it might actually be a simpler project to put it on an offroad rolling chassis than to convert something like this bus to a camper.
Results might be better too.
Let me be the first to say what we are all thinking: Holy ******K! I get that it's nice and hard for most people to import but damn!
This one is 18k usd. plus 5-10k import... still have 30 k to play with...
Ok so it's not 25 years old yet but you get my point.
I've done it (to Canada) and then to the USA. It's not that complex. Depending on the vehicle it might be worth doing it yourself. Under normal circumstances I wold recommend flying over to europe to inspect the vehicle pre-purchase, driving it to a port and picking it up at a port as you can...
I sold the truck as t wasn’t ready on time for my trip. I’m now on my way in a normal RV. Just drove east coast of Canada to BC and now going to drive the west coast down to panama, put it on a boat and continue in South America.
Here is where I am at the moment.
