Hey everyone,

I am selling my custom built Promaster camper van - check out the website here: https://carl-the-van.squarespace.com

The van is located in Bishop, CA and currently listed on eBay for a deep discount.  Jump over to the website to get the eBay link.

Highlights

  • 2014 Ram Promaster 3500 159” High Roof 3.0L EcoDiesel
  • Purchased brand new from Ram dealership in May 2016
  • 49300 miles (Approx 3 years and 50k more miles remaining on drivetrain warranty)
  • 21-24 mpg average fuel economy on trips (driving style and wind dependent)
  • Off-grid “Single Fuel” camper - the van itself and stove/heater run on diesel from the main tank. The rest of the van is powered by electricity generated by the solar array and van alternator.
  • Beautiful custom bamboo woodwork throughout. The interior of this van is nicer than most houses.
  • Designed for full time living with separate sleeping/living areas and tons of storage.
  • Permanent short queen bed - avoid the hassle of setting up the bed every night and sleep in total comfort.
  • No bathroom - this van does not have a designated bathroom/shower area. The galley faucet is set up to double as an outdoor shower, and there is space to store a small cassette toilet if desired.

I have to say, this is a beautifully built van. I am in the process of building one right now and I can really appreciate the amount of time, effort, planning, and money that went into this. It is actually a really good deal for what you are offering. One of the nicer builds I have seen... this is a palace on wheels. Hopefully someone jumps on this. I have seen vans posted for $80K on this forum that really don't compare to what you are offering for $62K.

Bump - the auction ends tomorrow evening.  If you want to snag the van before there are any bidders, let me know.

I want this van more than I have ever wanted anything in my entire life.

that is a really good deal on a nice build. It must pain you greatly to sell it. You might want to try the Sportsmobile forum to give some more press. A lot of eager van types there not just Sportsmobiles.

Any chance you'd part with your build plans, parts list, etc?

The van is sold.  Thanks everyone for the interest.

I don't have a full on parts list or plan for the van, but I did document some of the build over on promasterforum.com.   Many other people have as well, it is a great resource.

Regarding height, the clearance in the living area of this van is 6'4" and the crosswise bed is 6'2", so it accommodates me at 6'3" pretty well.

Woah, get out. I heard they were just 6' across. Must have been bad info
