CONSIDERATIONS 

All service up to date, so next major engine service iat 500,000 miles - current mileage 204K
Cummins ISB 3.9 4 cylinder turbo engine is the rare factory “high output” 4BTA version with 420 lbs of torque - great for easily driving “switch back” dirt roads up the sides of mountains.
Simple “bullet proof” Allison 1000 automatic transmission, 2 wheel drive, hydraulic brakes
New muffler, shocks, leaf springs and raised rear end 4” all in 2021

FYI
I lived in this full time for 3 years and constantly upgraded it to be easy to own and simple as possible while still having everything you could ever need to live in or travel in comfort and stealth on or off grid. I drove round trip LA to Michigan 7 times over the past 5 years and never once paid for a single night to stay; GREAT boon docking or BLM vehicle. Park anywhere, it looks like any clean white FedEx type delivery truck. Plus, it has a 4.10 rear end and geared so that I have driven this across shallow river beds and up dozens of mountains on dirt switchback roads with ease. This is a rugged 2 wheel drive all aluminum bodied commercial vehicle but, it can take you to places that other RV’s can only dream of going. It is ready to take you anywhere you want to go and it’s time for you to start building your own travel or movable home memories in complete and relaxed comfort and control.
