Default Loaded Off-grid Overland Ram Promaster for sale

This van is amazing. It was designed for a couple to live and travel full time. There are no compromises.

We chose the gas Promaster so it would be capable of world travel (there is no ULSD and DEF is difficult to source south of Mexico).

Selling because I am building a large expedition truck. I'll do another van after the truck.

Let me know if you have questions. Forward to anyone who may be in the market. Van is located in San Diego, California.

Wow, that is a great home on wheels you put together. The popularity of the B's, and looking at yours, and all it has to offer....I'd have to seriously think about hanging on to it. Look at the latest info Marco has published about the huge jump in B sales - and yours is top notch. Ron

Thanks, Ron! I will build another van after we build the expedition truck. The next van we do will be very similar as there is nothing I wish I did differently on this one. I may not do painted cabinetry as it is extremely labor intensive.

Default Getting ready to hit the road

If you could mod to fit two car seats it would be a win.

I would say it is a winner as is. Too bad I already have my van.

The only suggestion I would make is to put the water equipment in a separate compartment away from the electricals.

This turned out so great, I'd be hard pressed to part with it. You could easily turn such conversions into a business.
