    Rented a Ď17 F-150 and Lance 650 camper from cruise America. Thing drives like nothing on the truck. I think this is the setup I want to recreate. Ď17 or newer F-150 and half ton camper.

    good to hear that. This is the exact set up I am shopping for now. Having a hard time finding f150 with the larger payload. Curious who you rented from. Maybe they want to sell older models. edited just saw cruise america

    Ski RV's, who's sleeping in parking lots?

    Only thing was that they require 3 day minimum. They do sell ďusedĒ camper. I think itís one of those ďif youíre interested, letís talkĒ pricing.

    Iím looking around but you shouldnít look for lariat trim level. Rental was XLT. Iím gonna pencil down every options I want and start looking for an used. I would consider year end sales too, but it would have to be exactly what I want.

    I wonder whatí21 hybridís number looks like....

    Edit to add: It almost got about 20 mpg with another adult, a toddler, going up and down some mountain passes.

    What's the build like?

    Been honestly debating selling my very clean, low mile 80 series to buy a 4x4 van or something that I can sleep in easier in the winter.
    If the Crystal fuckery continues this winter (it will) I don't want to spend 8 hours driving to ski for 6.

    Hard to take interior photos. Walkthrough layout from Sportsmobile. EB31 if I remember correctly. Full size bed/couch for winter. Heater, stove, micro, fridge, sink, etc. Lots of storage. Built in generator. It is a small apartment with 4x4 and a great stereo.

    I want this but canít afford it... I thought I knew what I want but now not so sure. I think Iíll end up with something a lot cheaper than I wanted because I think I wanna built a shop to store all of my toys including a camper.

    I love that van. I'm gearing up for summer in my Subaru. But that van would be way better. It's perfect in my mind. Not too big. Badass.
    What does your wife want to get?

    Transit AWD is what I'm steering towards.

    I've been looking at those as well. But I want to park it in the garage, so low roof. Not sure I can really make the low roof work for a bed and stuff. Plus I don't think low roof comes in AWD. So I'll likely just watch from afar.

    You guys think I could survive a California winter (Mammoth and Tahoe) in an uninsulated van with a knock off diesel heater? I don't need it to be 70 at night. At minimum above freezing so I can keep water, but ideally above 45ish.

    I was hoping to build another van more suited to winter but I recently got laid off. Saved enough that I can probably get by not getting another full time job until next year but certainly can't afford another vehicle.

    One of the Chinese diesel heaters will easily keep a small van toasty warm even without insulation. You'll need enough battery capacity though.

    Thanks for your thoughts. I have 150ah of usable capacity. From what I can find those heaters draw a couple amps once warmed up so that shouldn't be an issue.

    Mine pulls .9A on low, but it will cycle back to high on its own to maintain the set point, which uses more, obviously. I'd think 150ah would be enough if you can charge well every couple of days.

    I like the high floods on the rack.

    Are those your undies hanging from the bike seat?

    Sweet rig. Scenery doesnít suck either!!

    Why couldn't you make the bed work with a low roof? Looks like on the Ford website that a low roof has AWD.

    If I was reading properly, interior height was 54". Figuring 16" under bed for storage, 6" for frame and mattress height, i think that leaves me with 2.5' for headroom. Perfect for me, not sure I can convince the Mrs Griz that it will work for her.

    Thanks for the info on the low roof AWD.
