Super nice. Using the wheelchair lift in that way seems so obvious now, instead of ripping it out like most builders seem to do.

Do you have a build thread or IG/Youtube channel? Would love to see how this was all put together. And that wheelchair lift is such a good idea, really like the setup!


I follow you on IG. I'm very surprised to see her up for sale. Why are you selling?
We are nearly done completing our test runs with our rig. It was built as an escape and has evolved into a true passion. We are preparing to establish shop space in Reno NV to continue on a professional level to create more econoline based expedition vehicles . We look forward to bridging the financial gap between the average income and a trully remarkable offgrid autarkic machine.

Awesome! Good luck to you!

Question: if the dog crate was removed, how wide would the garage interior be? Like would something like a "Portable Mobility Scooter" (a.k.a. mother-ln-law scooter) fit in? It would need to be at least 24 inches wide.
