Why We Like It

Overlander style, “go-anywhere” 4x4 vehicles have exploded in popularity in recent years, usually professionally converted by specialist firms. Beginning as a choice first responder vehicle with low seller-stated miles, this 2003 Ford Econoline E-350 based overlander van was professionally converted to 4x4 spec by Advanced 4WD Systems, making the most of its Ford Triton V10 engine and automatic transmission. As related by the seller, it has just 8,400 original miles, less than 1,000 of which have been recorded since the 4x4 conversion was completed, and the fiberglass rear body was built by the Born Free Motorcoach company of Iowa. Tons of electrical outlets and lights provide day long visibility, and the vehicle is further equipped with Coleman roof mounted A/C and heat, plus an Onan microquiet 4000 onboard generator with in-cab starter button. Factory features and amenities, plus communications gear and other thoughtful features, make this exceptionally usable and capable overlander a true standout for the popular mobile lifestyle trend.

Valuation Verdict

What price should be applied to this awesome overlander? The work performed to bring it all together was done by professionals and likely at considerable expense. Few miles have been logged from new, especially so post-conversion. Whether you use it for comfortable travel, adventures, or as a “prepper van,” our subject vehicle should get the job done quite easily. While the asking price is healthy, there are likely few (if any) suitable comps out there, and anyone in this specific market will likely not be completely consumed by monetary considerations. It feels fairly valued to us and it will likely prove to be a fine motorized companion, leading us to declare it 'Fair Market' at or near the seller’s ask.
