Big Blue Van: 4×4 Ford E350 Sportsmobile
We’re a huge fan of Big Blue Van
If you’re looking to take the van life trip of a lifetime, look no further. Meet Big Blue Van! This beautiful beast is a Ford E350 Econoline Sportsmobile camper van fully equipped to take you and your crew out on your next adventure. Hop on in and head on out in Big Blue Van.
This camper van can seat up to five people and comfortably sleeps four, so the whole family can get in on this groovy getaway. Big Blue Van has a bench seat that easily converts into a cozy bed for two with additional room for a couple more peeps up in the pop-top.
Thanks to the solar panels, shore power hookups, and generator you’ll have all the power necessary for a terrific trek around Tahoe. Dimmable LED lights are strategically placed throughout the interior and pop-top along with a reading light above the passenger seat, another reading light above the lower bed area, and LED lights in the storage areas.
Big Blue Van’s kitchen is fully outfitted with:
- birch wood walls and cabinetry
- slate backsplash
- built-in refrigerator
- kitchen sink
- two-burner propane stove (and cover)
- dishes, mugs, glasses, and utensils
As a result, this galley kitchen is perfect for cooking in camp with the same ease you’d find at home. Just grab some groceries, load up your luggage, and let Big Blue Van sweep you off your feet!
There’s plenty of storage under the platform bed in the “gear garage” and interior cabinets. There’s also a Fiamma manual awning to make time spent outside the van just as enjoyable as when you’re inside. This Ford Econoline camper van is the perfect combination of old school vibes with a new soul feel.
Keep Big Blue Van blue!
