This 2008 Ford E-250 blends the characteristics of a pop-top camper van with those of an overlanding SUV. It’s a 2008 model that has been converted to all-wheel drive by Quigley, the company responsible for some of the toughest 4×4 van conversions in the industry. The vehicle is also loaded with accessories that should make it quite appealing to anyone looking for an overland camping van.
Outside, it’s got a lift with an off-road ready Fox suspension, oversized all-terrain tires, a pop top installed by Sportsmobile, roof crossbars (and a ladder for accessing them) and an integrated awning, which will undoubtedly come in handy on sunny days at the trailhead, crag or campsite. Inside you’ll find a sink, a 2-burner stove and loads of storage space with room for at least two people to sleep. Integrated into the cabinets under the sink are 15-gallon freshwater and gray-water tanks, while an 8-gallon propane tank mounted to the body fuels the stove. Under the hood you’ll find a reliable, proven V8 engine paired with a simple 4-speed automatic transmission.
While we’d probably add some insulation to improve the efficiency, the nice thing about this build is that, despite its modifications, it’s pretty minimalist. That means it’s ready to be personalized, and at just $23,000, you’ll likely have room left over in your budget to do just that. Or you could leave it as-is for a simpler, more lightweight approach. It looks like there’s a little bit of rust, but for just $23,000, this Ford E-250 is a steal. It’s located in Las Vegas with 148,000 miles. Find a Ford E-250 for sale
