1986 Ford E150 Econoline 5L V8 Automatic

We are two Australians who have had the pleasure of owning this van for the past 6 months driving it from Costa Rica to California.
The van is WASHINGTON STATE REGISTERED (exp. 12/19/2018). Current millage 235342. Has only had two previous owners before us and has been well looked after & loved.


Engine is FUEL INJECTED, reliable and in immaculate condition.
New Fuel Pump
New Ignition Coils
New Ignition Key
New Wheel Bearings
New Mud Tyres

1200 miles ago we completed a FULL SERVICE at a mechanic
New Fan Belts
New Air Filter
New Fuel Filter
New Spark Plugs
New Break Pads
And we will also complete another full service once we reach California in Approx. June.

The van is fully equipped with everything you need to start your new journey!

-Each window has a custom made panel that reflects sunlight keeping the van cool while giving you privacy and the chance to sleep during daytime.
-Comes with a free 300W american power converter so you can charge phones, run laptops, hair dryers, etc.
-you have a movable kitchen unit so you can cook in/outside or rearrange the inside layout to your liking
-With the new mud tyres, V8 engine and good clearance you can take the can down almost any dirt road with rocks and steep inclines having no problem, in which we tested in the rural rough Guatemalan Mountains and secluded beach dirt roads in Nicaragua. Just not good in soft sand.
-2 long side windows and 2 back door windows pop out for airflow while sleeping.
-Well designed wooden interior for maximum storage as well as hidden secure storage for valuables.
