Yes. We have a DIY Astro van, converted 4x4, 4-5"lift kit, with GTRV pop top added.

Bought the van in Feb '08, stock, started modifying and camping right away. Will do my 10th trip in it this long weekend. Have already spent 29 nites camping in it. Many miles off pavement and 4x4 trails.

Its my Mini Me Sportsmobile.

Also have an '06 F-150 and an '18 Prowler travel trailer, oldie but a goodie.

We own a 2005 Vista Cruiser (Gulfstream Sprinter conversion). We have driven to California from our home in Cazenovia, NY and Myrtle Beach twice and camped throughout NY and Pa. I want to thank Mark for all his help as we have learned much from his threads and this forum. See you out there sometime. Bruce

Previously posted that "yes, we do" - but I'm going to make a half-hearted effort to sell it ('05/'06 RT Versatile).

Will place it on our local Park & Sell lot this week - so, perhaps will change my post to "no" (?)

Yes. My first RV was a 1976 17 foot Dreamliner on an E-250 chasis. It was basic but solid. I hated the recirculating toilet and the smell of chemicals though. I sold it a bought my current B a 1990 Falcon 19. We are very pleased with the overcab sleeping and full bath room.

For 2 years, I was seeking an affordable Roadtrek (that didn't have 150,000 miles on it...). In Sept. 2009, came across and bought a 1996 BIGFOOT Class B van with 35,000 miles. ( it was languishing on a consignment lot in Quartzsite,AZ. I flew down and drove it back)
Have found almost no info on them,except from marcopolo's photo thread and, through Bigfoot owner's club, found out only 63 were made in 1996 and 1997, original price $52,000. Do I have a rare van? :>)
Whenever I park it in front of my business, someone will come in and ask if it is for sale.

I would say yes, you have a rare van. 63 / 24 months is less than 3/month built. Sounds like it may
have been a dealer or custom order system. They (maybe) built them when they had a solid order/buyer?
I haven't had any offers on mine, but I've been asked about it a few time, and have allowed
more than one "open house" inside tour. People are just curious about how the RV stuff is
organized (crammed) in them to make them qualify as an RV, I think. Most of the people I've
shown are amazed at how everything fits, and, you can still almost swing a cat in one.
