More Details & Photos
This 2005 Ford E450 is a complete custom 4X4 Class B RV. Originally sold as a Ford E450 6.0L Turbo Diesel Cab & Chassis Ambulance Package and modified by Quigley Motor Company into a 4 Wheel Drive, this unit served a small volunteer fire rescue company in the mid-west, after being converted into an ambulance.
In 2016 the ambulance with only having traveled slightly over 12,000 miles was retired from service. The ambulance box was removed, and the Cab & Chassis was sold. In 2017 a gentleman who owned a custom fabrication automotive shop, purchased the unit to build a one-of-a-kind Overland RV. Absolutely no expense was spared in the construction of this unit.
A 2004 Chinook 19’ Class B RV was purchased from a local RV dealer since it shared the identical wheel-base as the Ambulance Cab & Chassis. The Chinook 19’ is a legendary Class B body, known mostly for its monocoque body construction, which is why it was selected for an Overland application. A monocoque body is a fiberglass body without any seams, meaning it’s built much like a boat is constructed and stands a much higher chance of handling off-road terrain.
Once the Chinook was secured the two vehicles underwent an extensive transformation consisting of hundreds of hours of customization and after nearly a year of work, the results speak for themselves. The factory engine is the 6.0 liter Power Stroke Turbo Diesel, which was went through to address all of the well know issues. (see details below)
The Chinook Body and interior were completely renovated with modern appliances and all new smooth coated and cleared cabinetry. The headliner was completely redone with a matching suede headliner. The seat upholstery is a durable leatherette style material, and the flooring is a highly durable rubber base mat for easy cleaning and great insulation.
This floor plan consists of a large queen size fold out bed, full kitchen and a private shower and toilet. Also unique to this rig is the full solar roof with tesla style batteries. No need for a generator with this unit. It also has the ability to hook up to shore/land power when at RV parks.
The Black Tank was removed since the installation of a new cartridge toilet was installed. It still retains its original Fresh Water Tank and Custom-made Gray Water Tank for the Sink and Shower.
