my BOV
« on: March 21, 2015, 02:37:00 PM »
no gun turrets
no camo
no  push bars
no look at me I cool
no tank treads

Just need 2 hours max to load all the bins (1 bin and misc very 2 min)
I have always been ready to go on an extended vacation,if I see things getting hot. I can always come back when heats off.
5 hours before the sheep wake up to what's up I be in North bay and still going.

That looks great Grouchy. May I ask where you got it, how much etc? Curiosity. Looks like a great dual purpose... camping/travelling and BOV.

K, I happy with this not bragging just facts.

got it at an auction M.R. Jutzi and company near waterloo. ( thanks to Green guy telling me about the auction place)
cost $1100  :D
ford 2007  e450 super duty ,gas, in great shape ,needed nothing for safety and e test already passed.
As a transit bus it had to be safety checked every 6 months from what I understand and it shows.
Has high mileage  and its a 10 cylinder so  gas mileage is going to suck. (I will deal with it)
Will be used as a motor home/camper for now. (or anything else that might come up)

for 1100 bucks I was not going to let it go.

That's great! Odd question, do you know how much space the interior has in cubic feet?

Inside dimensions
Its 17.5 feet from the drivers seat back
7.5 feet wide and 6.5 feet high
most people can stand up in it. (not for a basketball team)

Just over 850 cubic feet! That's great! A ton of storage space and/or people space as needed.

Plus lots of power to move whatever you put in it. Nice machine!
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

Grouchy,

I rented a moving truck a number of years ago which had the Triton V-10 powerplant in it. It did not seem to use much more fuel than a V-8, even when fully loaded. So, if your rig is in good shape, and it sure looks it, mileage might not be too bad.

With the space available, you will have many options for modifying the interior to meet your living and traveling needs.

Great find!!
