    Pretty sure they don't bother with rv's. They just buy a house wherever they're traveling to.

    Exactly
    So who is buying 150k sprinters?
    My guess is millennials that consider it a “tiny house” rather than a depreciating asset

    Lol. I know of more SoCal doctors than millennials who own ridiculous sprinters. Gotta have 4x4 for the Baja roads and sandy beach parking lots.

First night down by the river about 30 minutes from the hill. Look at all those wickets not on the Ikon list.
    I love your van.
    it's bad@ss but also low key and also could kind of be a church van so you get left alone

    Just spent two weeks chasing good weather in AK with some old friends. I think I could get used to camper living

    The Isuzu Trooper doesn't exactly have a sterling reputation for reliability, but otherwise it is a better value than most.

    Izusu diesels are allegedly reliable if you got a line on parts/service. They're also old and underpowered. Those jdm rigs are also made for hobbits. Everyone always says how cool they are. I agree they LOOK cool, but I'd like to hear from people who actually use the fuck out of one, preferably with at least one adult male within 1 standard deviation of average height.

    It is a Thor Majestic 19G that has been upgraded to 4WD. It looks like a former rental unit from Cruise America. They rent them and sell used RWD ones.

    Have you looked at what people are paying for 35 year old VW Vanagons lately?

    The Vanagon thing blows me away. I think GoWesty is to blame for creating the $80k synchro Westy market. I believe they sell them to people, then buy them back after they do their bucket list Instagram trip.

    I have had an '85 Vanagon for 15 years, and a '72 before that, both of which I lived in for periods. They are cool, but not exactly paragons of modern technology. At this point my VW is chilling in the back yard, appreciating.

    I bought my '82 Winnebago Brave about 12 years ago, lived in it for a few, and have recently gutted and rebuilt the whole interior. It's a much more comfortable and easy to work with platform than a van, for sure. Plus I paid $5k for it way back when. It has broken down twice in 50k miles. Once was The injector pump ($75 on ebay), and then the trans went out ($200 in parts and about 12h of my time to drop and rebuild). The only downsides compared with a Sprinter, IMO, are that it's wider and harder to park, and that it gets 13mpg (but I can buy a lot of fuel with the savings). 4wd would be nice, but it does really well with chains and even without, and again, more money for traveling....

    I would love to have a E350 4x4 van. Then, I realize I can build diesel truck with hardside camper for about $30k less and that idea goes away.

    yep... I can also stand up in my camper without having to cut the roof. No doubt sportsmobile, et. al, are cool as fuck, but bang vs buck kept pointing back to camper and truck. -Rhymenocerous

    For sure. Not to mention I can take the camper off in about 15 minutes and have a vehicle that's actually useful for things other than sleeping.

    Alright, reality check.

    Have a 04 Tundra Access Cab 4x4 V8. 3" front lift (upgraded shocks and springs), 1.5" add-a-leaf rear lift. Could add airbags if needed.

    Looking at a 2014 Outfitter Caribou Lite 6.5 that popped up on local craigs. Looked at it last night, it's in great shape (two relatively minor issues that I should be able to address myself). Will come with Torklifts made for my truck (current owner has a first gen Tundra as well).

    Not a terrible match for the truck, right? Anyone have any horror stories about Outfitter? Heard the old owners had bad CS, but the company is under new ownership as of January, so current CS is a wildcard regardless. Anyone have bad things to say about build quality?

    The used market for more common aluminum framed popups is goddamn ridiculous. For FWC people are asking and getting just a couple thousand off brand new price for campers that are 5-10 years old.

    Of course I just took delivery of three Transit 350HD's at work and this news comes out. AWD would've been ideal, but the RWD+Nokians are ok. Transit AWD + EcoBuust + Nokians = winter crusher.
