Overland Classifieds :: 2008 Ford F-450 Camper

I’m not sure what’s more impressive, this beautifully designed overland-ready F-450 or the stunning photography accompanying the listing. This 2008 Super Duty has covered just 110,000 miles, incorporates several premium overlanding modifications, and features an insulated aluminum framed camper that weighs under 1,000 pounds. However, perhaps the most notable inclusion is the beautiful wooden rear deck, protected from the elements by a bespoke roof constructed of 400 watts of solar—genius! There are a lot of truck-based campers posted to the forum, so it takes something decidedly unique to stand out, and today’s featured classified does exactly that.

From the Seller:

Taking inspiration from EarthRoamer and Global Expedition vehicles, the goal was simple: easy to maintain and an affordable truck that could be used in multiple ways. The balance of comfort and capability was right for us but may not match everyone’s preferences. With 4×4 and 37-inch M/T tires, we have tackled many challenging trails, but it is not a rock crawler. At nearly 12,000 pounds and 92 inches wide, it has limits and cannot tackle very narrow trails or loose sand that some off-road vehicles can. The 60 square feet of heated camper space has felt like a sanctuary during the harshest weather in remote locations, but it isn’t a Class C motorhome. There isn’t a bathroom, the shower is outside, and the climb up to bed is not for the elderly. The rear ‘deck’ has been an amazing place to spend warm evenings, get ski gear on or muddy gear off, and for carrying dirt bikes. It also gives the truck versatility beyond a normal camper. When not on a trip, the truck can still be used as a truck, helping friends move and making dump runs, the compromise being reduced interior living space.”
