This is an introduction and goodbye all in one. I jumped on earlier this year as I researched, purchased, and eventually built out my van, but an accident a few months back has taken me out of the sport this van was built for.

2016 Ford Transit 350
3.2L I5 Diesel
High Roof, Extended Length
Color: Caribuo Brown
Dual Sliding Doors

16,794+ miles.
Located in Northern Virginia (Winchester, VA - 22601)
Asking: $37,500 obo

Factory Options Include:
AM/FM Stereo with SYNC® 3 and Navigation w/ 6.5" Display
6-speaker configuration
Cruise Control
Lane-Keeping Alert with Driver Alert
Dual Heavy Duty Battery
Heavy Duty Alternator
Pewter Cloth Interior

Factory Options I've added:
Remote Keyless Keypad (synced, but never permanently mounted)
Heavy Duty Trailer Tow Package w/ Integrated 7-pin wiring.
Rear Door Sill Protection (plastic on the floor at the rear doors).
Extra 60A fuses for aux fuse (along driver seat).

Build / Conversion:
1/4" high-density foam under the floor, between the ribs.
1/2" pressure treated plywood, wrapped with rubber diamond plate for the floor base.
Dyanamat sound deadening on fender wells, and inner panels, all roof panels, and inside sliding doors.
3M Thinsulate behind every carpeted panel that has been installed so far, including walls, and ceiling.
Indoor/outdoor carpet (brown) wrapping all wooden panels.
Ceiling panels consist of 1/4" plywood
Walls and Partiiton are a mix of 1/2" and 3/4"
Added 6 LED lights (2 in front, 4 in back) hard wired to and switched to aux fuse terminals.
L-Track along the center of floor as well as along the walls.
Factory mounting points were used where possible, with Rivnuts and stainless hardware used for L-track installation.
Maxxair 0007500K MaxxFan Smoke Grey Deluxe Remote Fan installed in front.
Aux 12v and USB in rear of van, both with hard switches.

There's probably more that's been done but I can't remember specifically.

Some of the factory configuration probably seems odd. This was a Ford Demo vehicle, one they would take to trade-shows to show off some of the configurations. It checked the important boxes I wanted when I found it, diesel, Sync3 Navigation, non-dually, high and long. The dual sliding doors I could have went without, but as I've used it I find myself using the driver-side door more than the passenger so it's definitely convenient, but takes away some build options.

I have extra 3m Thinsulate as You can see the build isn't 100%. It's in a completely usable state, but I'm missing some lower panels and the upper wall sections (in the window holes).

The front was built to have a bench with drawers. The drawers can pull out and the seat pads fold out to form a full bed 6' in length and as wide as the inside. There's a shelf built into the partition for storage and a cargo net to hold things in. Maxxair fan was installed in the front half for the "living" space, mostly for air when sleeping.

The rear was built to carry 2 dirtbikes full time but easily accommodates 3 bikes. I've seen someone else with a similar setup haul 4. L-Track line the floor and walls for securing points as well as the factory tie points. I honestly love the vehicle and the platform, but I broke my leg a few months back, still healing, and have decided to give the off-road racing a break for a while. Selling the bikes and van for now.

I can be reached either PM here, or via phone/sms 57one-4eight2-9two7nine
