1997 Ford E-350 Extended Quigley 4wd conversion Camper Van
289k miles, 6.8l gasoline V10 engine.
I have owned this van for about four years and have always put Amsoil full synthetic fluids in it; motor oil, transmission fluid, transfercase, power steering and rear differential, (I never changed the front differential fluid). The van runs fine and has always gotten me where I want to go. The 4wd system works as it should. Agile Off Road Ride Improvement Package and new rear leaf springs have been installed. Four of the tires have about 4k miles on them, the spare has about 12k.
There are three seats with seat belts, the bed is approximately 69”x60”.
Interior features include:
- CB radio with PA
- tablet and phone holder
- Bluetooth stereo
- induction cooktop for use when plugged into shore power only
- foot pump
- grey water tank
- 100 watt Renogy solar panel and controller
- Battle Born 50ahr lithium battery
- 12 volt or 120 volt compressor refrigerator
- dimmable LED lights
- exterior lights
- Fantastic thermostatically controlled fan
The ceiling height is 59”. Lots of room for storage under the bed. Exterior tool box. Front AC blows cold.
This is a former media van, there was a satellite dish, mast, generator and air compressor that are no longer on the rig. The roof is a very stable surface to walk onor store things.
This van has some miles on it and the doors have some wear and are not as smooth as when they were new. A rear door has a broken door stop.
This van has a solid front axle which tends to wander on bumpy paved roads and takes some attention when driving. In general, the ride is fairly stiff, especially on washboard dirt roads, airing the tires down helps.
A couple other items: The transmission is slow to shift from first to second when it is cold (then engine revs more than normal), after a mile or so things shift normally. There is an “OD Off” button on the shifter that used to lite up when pressed and not shift into overdrive, this function is no longer working, you cannot turn the overdrive off, I do believe the transmission is shifting into overdrive. The Brake light on the dash does not come on when the parking brake is on, it comes on when you put the key in and the parking brake works. The spare tire hoist under the rear has been damaged and I store the spare on the roof.
The exterior rear door latch is loose, it is functional, butI am very careful when opening it! I live in rainy Western Oregon and this van sits in my driveway most of the year. The floor in front of the passenger and driver seats gets wet after long periods of rain, there is some minor rust in this area, this area is not soft. I have only observed this moisture when the van is not driven. There is some minor rust at the rear raingutter. I have not seen any rust in the body around the wheels. The rear differential has a slow leak, this happened after I spent $90 putting Amsoil gear oil in and I didn’t want to start over again, I check the oil level several times a year.
