For Sale: 1999 Ford Van in San Luis Obispo, California

Vehicle Description

1999 Ford Econoline RV Cutaway Road Van.�Triton V10 engine and overdrive transmission for maximum gas mileage.� This is truly a One-of-a-kind Party Bus/RV and camper.� She is "Shuttle Van Conversion Number 6"�Professionally built in 2013 by John Schmalshof, custom coach builder in Atlanta, GA.� The exterior looks pretty normal for a Shuttle bus, except perhaps for the diamond plated tool box in the rear.� However, the interior is constructed�of natural wood, cloth upholstery, curtains and amply appointed with Stainless steel hardware and equipped with many creature�comforts.� This Shuttle Bus Conversion offers many windows for viewing Nature - much more than a conventional RV/Motor Coach and has shore power hookups when at a campsite with services, but also can be very functional for days "off-grid" with its solar panels and power inverter.� Tinted windows give privacy. The Van Sleeps 4 comfortably - One queen bed and one Gaucho couch/bed.��
The conversion in 2013 included installation of the elevated queen bed platform at the rear of the coach. Directly under the bed is a�25 gallon water tank and a large cavity for luggage and storage accessed from the outside clamshell door.���Also under the bed is storage space for clothing with sliding doors of faux marble.� A large matching faux marble cabinet was installed on the LHS of the van for storage which houses the stainless steel sink bowl and encases the 20 Gallon water heater.� Opposite the cabinet on the RHS of the van is a Gaucho�bed - a comfy couch by day,� and a fold out two-sleeper bed by night.� The coach was modified to accomodate�a large Norcold Refrigerator/Freezer (AC and propane) and a microwave.� ��I purchased the coach in 2015 and drove Cross-Country to California from Atlanta sightseeing along the way. I had no problems whatsoever and the bus drove well and was very comfortable. In 2015, I added a Solar Panel system (utilizing two marine batteries for storage) so that I was not dependent�on AC for power. Also in 2015 I gave the van a new HO alternator,� installed a new wireless Electric Door System for side door entry, a new AC compressor, and a new bluetooth remote control stereo system. In 2020 I removed the carpeting and installed a new vinyl floor of simulated oak.� �
