2018 XPCamper (Now Nimbl) V1e (Last One Made) & 06 Dodge RAM 3500 Big Horn (5.9L) with 101K in Excellent Condition $165K

Picture 1.jpg

We are selling our beloved 2018 XPCamper V1e and 2006 Dodge RAM 3500 Big Horn Edition with the 5.9L Cummins engine and 101K miles on it. The camper has been used for one big trip (from Colorado to Ushuaia, Argentina). In our opinion, this is the best pop up camper on the market and it is a true overland expedition vehicle. Both the camper and the truck have been meticulously maintained. XPCamper is now Nimbl Vehicles (https://nimblvehicles.com/xpcamper/) which is located in California and provides maintenance on the XPCamper V1e. We are planning on attending the Overland Expo West and Mountain West if you would like to take a look at the rig during either of these shows. We are also happy to do video call with you so that you can see the rig before seeing it in person. We are not willing to sell the camper without the truck (or vice versa). If you are interested please contact us (Karl and Leah) at 303-587-4819 (Karl) or karlwolf@gmail.com. We are located in Boulder, Colorado.

The truck

The truck is a low milage (101K) 2006 Dodge RAM 3500 Big Horn Edition with the legendary 24-valve 5.9-liter in-line six-cylinder Cummins diesel engine. This is the last year that Dodge made the 5.9L Cummins engine and it is, in our opinion, the best diesel engine to buy, especially if you are going south of the border where only high sulfur diesel is sold. We just replaced all of the fuel injectors (at a cost of $3,435) and it is running like new. The modifications to the truck include the following:
  • Comfort - Scheel-Mann Vario F Seats
  • Recovery/safety - An ARB Dual Air Compressor, a backup camera, a custom, powder coated XPCamper Aluminum Front Bumper w/ PIAA LED fog and driving lights and a 18″ PIAA LED Light Bar and a Warn Winch with synthetic cable (16.5 TI-S)
  • Suspension - Custom Deaver Leaf Springs (3' wide, 3 leaf buildup), a Hellwig Rear Stabilizer Bar, Icon 3" Progressive Coil Springs, Icon Reservoir Shocks (37705CP), upgraded front end components, e..g, ball joints, damper, gear kit, joints, steering kit, etc. and an upgraded the differential carrier
  • Theft protection - Jimmi' Jammer in door lock protectors, Madico ClearPlex Automotive Safety Film, security film on all of the truck windows, a Ravelco anti theft device, a Tuffy Center Secury Console (lock box) and 2 types of locking wheel lug nuts
  • Other - A 37 quart ARB fridge, an ARB Differential Breather Kit, a 60 gallon Titan fuel tank and an SPod Switch Panel
These upgrades enabled us to overland from Boulder, CO to Ushuaia, Argentina in comfort and confidence. The truck is not only extremely durable, but has all the horsepower and torque you will need to handle any challenge you throw at it, whether it’s completing the Lagunas Route from Bolivia to Chile or passing semis on the mountainous single lane roads of Colombia.

The flatbed and storage box

The flatbed is an XPCamper V1e aluminum flatbed with lots and lots of storage space. In addition, we added a huge aluminum storage box. We used this to store a boogie board, a mountain bike, a surfboard and other stuff during our trip. The storage box (which could be removed) slides to the side giving you access to 2 rear storage containers. There is also a secret slide out drawer which we used to store all of our recovery mats and tools (it's also a great secret compartment for storing cheese, meat and produce when crossing certain borders). Overall, between the storage box, the storage containers in the flat bed and the numerous storage containers in th the interior of the XPCamper, you will not lack storage space, even on an around world trip if you have lots of hobbies like we do.

The camper

The camper is a late 2018 seamless monocoque pop up camper with an automated electric, pop-up mechanism. The electronic lift raises the camper by approximately 1 meter in less than 30 seconds, providing you with 6 and 1/2 feet of internal headroom. The bright, spacious interior of the camper includes a bathroom with a cassette toilet and a heated shower, a queen size bed with an Froli European spring mattress system, a comfortable dinette that seats 2 - 4 people and a kitchen with an induction cooktop, microwave and sink. One of the things we like best about the XPCamper is how bright it is. Not only is it white, but it’s full of windows, including a huge rear window which is at the perfect hight to allow you to get amazing views when you are eating, hanging out or working at the table. We also love how comfortable the seating area is.

Specific features of the camper include the following:
  • Awning - A 9' Dometic self supporting awning with an LED light bar and remote (Model 9500)
  • Batteries - 4 300A, 6V Lifeline AGM Batteries (600A 12V) with a Magnum Battery Monitor Kit
  • Cassette toilet - A Thetford Cassette Toilet
  • Charge system - Blue Sea ACL Charge System (a 2 way charging system for the camper batteries)
  • Cooktop - A Dometic Induction Cooktop (Model CL-20)
  • Fans - 2 mulit speed, reversing, roof mounted Maxx Fans
  • Heating system - Rixen Hydronic Heating System
  • Inverter - A 2000W Magnum Pure Sine Inverter
  • Lift mechanism - An XPCamper V1e Electronic Roof Lift System (with a manual override)
  • Lighting - LED lighting, switchable to white, red or blue
  • Mattress - Queen size Froli European spring mattress system
  • Power - 120V/USB outlets in camper and at outside rear of camper
  • Macerator pump - A Johnson Macerator Pump
  • Microwave oven - A Controure microwave oven (Model RV-787S)
  • Refrigerator - A 4.3 cubic foot 12V Dometic marine refrigerator/freezer
  • Shell - A Monocoque foam core, frameless and seamless fiberglass shell with carbon fiber construction
  • Shore power inlet - A 30A SmartPlug shore power inlet
  • Showers - Exterior and interior cold/hot showers
  • Skylight - A Dometic skylight with an insect screen and shade
  • Solar panels - 3 Solar Panels @ 160W each (480W total) with a 30A controller
  • Water storage - 90 gallon fresh, 23 gallon grey, 5 gallon black (cassette storage)
  • Water filtration systems - A 3 stage Daulton Water filtration system with Carbon, Ceramic and Pleated cartridges
  • Water pump - A Johnson water pump with the ability to pump water from natural sources
  • Windows - Dometic windows with integrated insect screens and roll up shades
The Rixen hydronic heating system (which was just maintained) provides heat to the camper and the hot water, it is diesel-powered but can also run on electricity when the camper is plugged in. All of the cables and connectors are marine grade.

The dimensions

The dimensions of the rig are roughly 7.5M (length), 2.3M (width), 2.6M (height). When closed the camper is only 56″ higher than the truck bed reducing wind drag and making it easier to drive into campgrounds or on roads with a hight limit. This rig will fit in a high cube container with room to spare for another smaller overland vehicle. However, you can also remove all of your personal possessions from the cab and flat bed and put them on the floor of the camper and ship the rig via RORO. There is no way for anyone to get into the camper when it is down and no pass through between the camper and the truck so this is also a secure way to ship it.

Here are some pictures of the rig!

Do the new owners of XP honor XP's old builds for repair and warranties?
I don't know about warranty but they are doing upgrades, repairs and modifications for existing XP's. I haven't had any work done but i track their progress and purchased one part from them. They seem totally sh$t together.

Almost all of the components of the XP are third party components so those manufacturers will warranty the components. The only thing XP warranties (or used to) is the shell.
