  3. 1990 Ford Econoline E350 Super Van Conversion (New transmission, brakes and tires) Hi, we are very sad to sell our beloved camper van "Big Bertha" because we are leaving the country. We bought her in Carlsbad, California in March 2019 and we will arrive during the first week of August in Anchorage, Alaska. She served us very well in our road trip from LA to Anchorage. She is the perfect little home on wheels: super spacious, comfy and very reliable. Hopefully, she can find a new owner pretty soon. This is what you need to know about her: For the guys: - V8 7.5 liter petrol engine (runs great) - 2 RWD with high clearance - 2 gas tanks (2x 18 gallons) - 1 ton haul - milages: 65K accoriding to the 5-digit odometer, but more likely 165K - VIN 1FTHS34G8LHB83630 - Clean title - includes bull bar, roofrack and spare tire - automatic transmission has been fully rebuilt in March 2019 (150K or 3-year guarantee) - brakes (font and back) and shocks (front) have been replaced in March 2019 - new set of tires (Goodyear Wrangler Trailmark LT265/75R16) in April 2019 - new starter in May 2019 - maintenanced regularly - Sportsmobile look - marine battery chargeable by car battery/alternator. 400W inverter (DC to AC) is included so you can charge any appliance (laptop, mobile phone, camera, ...). - jumper cables, box full of fluids (engine oil, brake fluid, steering pump fluid, ATF) and jack included - Californian license plate - passed Californian smog test in March 2019 For the girls: - spacious interior (12 foot from the back of the drivers seat) - lots of storage under double bed with a sliding drawer accessible from both inside and out - large fridge and water tank with manual pump - windows are tinted so you don't need curtains. You can see from the inside to the outside, but not vice versa. Perfect for the stealth van life! - passenger seat turns 180° and pulls down completely - 8 fully working individual switch lights throughout the van. They work even when the van is not running which is really handy - The windows next to the bed have a cage on them so you feel safe when left open. - includes gas stove, pots, pans, cups, cuttlery and grill - foldable table at side doors and 2 folding chairs - plants are included Asking price is 6900$. Interested? For more information, mail us at kristof.druppel@gmail.com or call +14242969964
  4. We have 4 rigs headed for Alaska this year. We have been there twice in our RV (2009 & 2017). We are leading 3 other rigs for their first time. Plan on leaving So. Cal. in late April, entering Canada in late May and Alaska in late June. We love to meet other RVer's and share experiences and travel plans. We hope to post our travels here as we progress, looking forward to meeting other Alaska travelers this year.
  5. Hello fellow Escapees! I hope you will allow me a moment to brag a bit about having an article published in the Nov/Dec 2017 issue of Workamper News. It is about our summer 2016, which we spent workamping near Seward AK. Since you would have to subscribe to read it in their online magazine, and I realize not everyone does, I posted it in full on my blog - you can click here: Glaciers, Puffins and Whales - Oh My! Hope you enjoy - thanks for reading!
