The Ford E-350 is one of the most popular overland platforms on our forum, with recent examples including this 1999 Class C camper, 2006 Sportsmobile, and 1997 camper. However, today’s 2006 build might be the most unique and impressive to date. The rig showcases a “bulletproofed” 6.0-liter diesel, well-equipped Stahl service body, Colorado Camper Van automatic pop-top, Agile Offroad 4WD conversion, and a long list of desirable modifications. The seller states that he has “around $150,000 in receipts,” and there’s no questioning the time and money invested in this build. The E-350 is coveted for its dependable motor and drivetrain, availability of parts, generous interior living space versus modest external footprint, and access to a wide array of aftermarket components and accessories. The E-350 4×4 is a fantastic option for round-the-world exploration, as documented by Daniela Wagner’s adventures in Africa and Saudi Arabia. If you’d like a better idea of how this van can be outfitted for long-term travel or full-time living, check out these epic builds from Josh Evans and Timberline Vans.
From the Seller:
“This one-of-a-kind build took over two years to complete by a compilation of some of the best conversion upfitters and aftermarket suppliers in the industry, including Agile Offroad, Aluminess, Ujoint, Colorado Camper Van, Adventure Bravely, Devil Mountain Diesel, Ruhne Racing, etc. The build thread can be viewed on the sportsmobileforum.com ‘6.0 Service Body’ thread, where it has garnered many tens of thousands of views and follows. Every detail and component is securely fastened and designed for heavy off-road applications. There are many redundancies built into the vehicle to avoid any compromising backcountry situations, and with an ARB rear air locker, there are few places you can’t go.”
