2004 Ford 350 $19,900

"The magic bus"

It's time for me to give up my lifelong dream of roving the country as a vagabond.

drivers side (best)
In addition to the windshield, the van has 11 windows. Two open fully (front), four open halfway (back), four open just an inch or two (sides).


I bought it to travel for business in my blue, 2004 Ford E-350 (camping van) that has just passed 16,000 miles, but haven't had the chance in over 3 years.

It has a V-10 engine and is equipped with a "marine" battery and 1800 watt inverter.

I've replaced the ignition battery (twice) and discovered that a fuse was draining the battery. I had the fuse replaced and a switch added to the battery so nothing can drain it.

I've added 4 new Michelin tires - it's a dually.

I've replaced the inverter and have the box it came in.

I made mosquito netting for the windows to keep out "no-see-ems."

I've made a makeshift shower from a tub meant for mixing cement and a solar shower. Once filled with water, lay it on the hood of the van to heat the water. Then bring it inside to use.
