Bamboo Road Home
Bamboo Road Home
Grab yourself a bargain! Looking for a quick sale. Barely the price of materials and vehicle. If there is no sale before the cold November winds start to blow we'll be driving it back down south to Guatemala.
'91 Ford Econoline Cargo Van converted into tiny mobile home by myself in It boasts a full wooden interior of pine and cyprus accented with cedar and bamboo and an oiled strip oak floor. It sleeps two over the cab, one over a three door hanging closet and two more on a collapsible dinette. It has a full kitchen with a small propane four burner stove with oven, a stainless steel sink and a 5ft refrigerator/freezer. Bathroom has a comfortable shower stall, a porcelain mini toilet and built in storage racks. Fully wired and plumbed with clean and black water storage. Ceiling and walls are insulated. The exterior is covered in a protective coating of bamboo. Van is fully maintained and in good mechanical condition. Engine is a diesel. It has 156,000 miles. It burns no oil. Since purchasing it two years ago I've installed a new vacuum pump, vacuum assist for the brakes, water pump, batteries, brake pads, radiator and 3 new tires. The van is currently registered as an RV in California and is payed up until October of next year. Insurance costs me, as a senior with a clean sheet, /month. Lastly, the box or tiny house is completely removable from the chassis and could stand alone or be placed on a new vehicle.
Please note there is currently no hot water heater installed. We have a 5'6" low consumption fridge/freezer that we bought because it was a bargain instead. The initial idea however, was to purchase a smaller fridge and install a water heater above it. All the plumbing is in place for either this or a solar heater on the roof. Also there are only two five gallon tanks of black water storage. These should really be replaced for a larger single holding tank, but it was all I had available at the time.
