    24 foot Class C is a nice way to go. As you said, adding insulation is a good idea especially on windows. We use 1" Styrofoam panels custom cut to fit with Reflectex glued one side. shiny inside in winter, shiny outside in summer. Also use a quilt or cheap duvet to make a divider from the front drivers section. Watch that front window carefully for leaks as they take a pounding with any form of precipitation.

    Is it just me, or are the prices for Sprinter's just getting more and more ridiculous? This one's used with 20,000 miles on it.
    To me it seems insane that anyone would pay that much for a used camper van, but what do I know? Maybe that market exists.
    It's got to be just a matter of time before we see one breaking the $200K barrier, if it hasn't already. If money was no option, I would love to have one, but that's way beyond my budget. I keep thinking or hoping that the whole #vanlife thing will implode if or when the next dip in the economy comes and the used market for Sprinters comes back down to reality, but I'm not sure that's going to happen.
    There is about to be a huge influx of 2x4 amazon sprinters in the next few years. I wouldnt be surprised to see those going for dirt cheap and conversion kits like those on E-series becoming a thing.

    Is still see Sprinters being insulated with house Fiberglass/Rockwool type insulation.
    I thought everyone agree that was a bad idea due to moisture retention.
    What's with that?
    Would you buy a used van that was insulated that way, assuming they taped everything nice and there is a plastic barrier sheet on top?

    Ready to go. How much can I inflate the resale price of my truck do you think? An extra 20k at least right?

    If you include the Xscreams, I'd bet you've got another $30k in value right there.

    The igloo cooler alone has to add at least 2k. Jet Boil, your platform can double check as butcher block, I'm seeing a pinterest-worthy #Vanlife kitchen in the making.

    Saw this bad ass EarthRoamer parked in Galena today. Thing is a monster, mounted on a F550 chassis.

    My 2004 F-250 with a beater Northland camper all in for $12000 can do the same things as his $180000 mortgage sucker.

    On a similiar but more expensive note, get a decent used Class C (Big Foot, Triple E, Travelaire) with a Super Duty 450 chassis and convert it to 4x4. $10,000 Canadian for the conversion including a 5" lift. Unlike the Earthroamer you can go from front to back.

    $180k? Website says $550k-1.7million.

    What does that work out to price per square foot?

    Here's a link to a used one for.......only just over half a million ($550k). Looks pretty sweet. I like the full sized cab on it.

    Earthroamers are for people who can drop super car money on a toy and it won't phase them.

    For sure, without a doubt. Total eye candy. Kinda like a super model. Great to look at, fun to ride, love to have one, just way beyond my budget. The maintenance alone would kill you.

    Only $600k, “well equipped” and it can be yours!

    Topping out at 55 mph would get old. And with 115 horsepower (when it was new), I'm guessing that thing would be going about 25mph over any kind of mountain pass.

    Seems like a decent option if you wanted a desert wanderer. Especially if you already live in the desert, and don't have to drive very far to do your wanderings.

    Perfect for a desert full-timer who needs to move every 14 days.

    How come more trucks don't have the rear window lower all the way like the Tundra? How come the Tundra has such terrible payload? Seems like a truck with a slide-in camper would be a great option, especially if the dogs could sleep in the cab and we could crawl back and forth without having to go outside (wife and I are both compact enough to crawl through a window if needed).
