We’ve talked about a bunch of campers around here, and they usually are based on vans. The camper in the images here started life as a 1995 Ford F-250 diesel truck and has been converted into a nice overlanding rig complete with a bed-mounted popup camper. The 1995 F-250 has been upgraded to F-350 specification according to the seller.
The 1995 Ford F-250 has a 7.3-liter turbo diesel that has been upgraded. The truck has 165,000 miles on the engine and has a new KC Turbo installed that helps the truck to run much smoother. The list of modifications is massive; users can hop over to the listing on Expeditionportal.com to see everything.
Major upgrades include a new Driven Diesel fuel system, E40D transmission 3-inch downpipe upgrade, and 4-inch exhaust. The truck has a 400 amp alternator and dual Odyssey batteries. The cooling system has numerous upgrades. The only things the truck could use, according to the seller, is a rewrap on the steering wheel and a new windshield.
The camper is a vintage pop up made in 1988 that appears clean and practical. It can sleep two adults and has a furnace and sink. The stove is a dual burner, and it has a new12V refrigerator. Dual Full River deep cycle batteries and 300 watts of solar power. The seller is asking $45,000 for the truck as it sits. As you can imagine with any forum, the first post says the price is too high.
The seller says that replicating the 1995 Ford F-250 camper would cost $35,000 for the truck, $10,000 for the Alumline flatbed, and $5,000 for the camper with the solar and new fridge. The truck rolls on 37-inch tires and looks like it is ready to go anywhere.
