F350 4x4 dually with camper

Hi, we are currently traveling to Ushuaia and will sell our truck and camper end of February 2014. A bit early for you, but maybe it works? It is quite big and has enough room to sleep 4. Message me and I'll send you more info.

More info - sorry for the delay

Sorry, I thought I'd get an email if you reply, so just stumbled on this again by coincidence.
It is a 4x4 F350 pickup dually diesel 7.3l from 2000 with California license plates, currently it has 143k miles on it. New brake pads in front, new tires. New suspension put in in Mexico at the start of our trip. We'll still drive it to Ushuaia so there will be another 10k miles to add to it.
On top of it is a 2000 Bigfoot camper. It is in great shape, everything works. Only the black and grey tank level indicators are flaky, but it is easy to know where you are with that. It has agas heater which worked even at 4300m (haven't tried it higher than that yet), a gas stove with 3 burners and an oven and a gas / electricity fridge and freezer. Microwave, Air condition. Generator with only 70 hours on it. Solar panel which gives us enough energy to charge laptops and devices on top of everything else. Bathroom with separate shower and toilet, hot water heater. Lots of storage space and a basement compartment for camping chairs, table etc. The dinette converts into a bed for children.
I can take some pictures and send them to you, we haven't posted it anywhere yet as we are just getting started to think about selling it.

Our Ford E-350 may suit you perfectly


we are still traveling since 14 months and 20000km in our van. We are 2 parents with 3 kids and may be leaving the van with car seats also. There is plenty of space as the equipment is very simple and I dar The price will be around 3000USD. We are at Foz do Iguazu and will be travelling north, so Lima (or any close border crossing) would be the place to start from.

Send me an e-mail to [email protected] if you would like to have some more photos. When would you like to start your trip. Would May be too late?


P.S.: Here you have one: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_PjZeql8NqIRTY4ODhtOHMweU0/edit?usp=sh...

Dodge B250 campervan

Hi Matt,

Not sure if you have found a vehicle yet, and we don't know what size your looking for,

but our fully camperized (three burner stove) with a fold up bed and a big pull-out bunk bed (suitable for kids) will be for sale in April....in south Chile or Argentina depending on negotiation.

Here is a link to our Van where you can also watch a video: 


Take care,
