A perfect shell for that DIY tiny home you’ve been dreaming of!

This is a project vehicle that could become a functional tiny home on wheels, or at the very least, it could remain a bare-bones shelter with a bed and utility hook ups.

This Ford Jayco Econoline E350 Motorhome is 26' long and only has ~68,000 miles. It is automatic and drives like a champ. It has a slow leak of power steering fluid, but all you need to do is add some fluid to top it off before driving and it will do just fine. It doesn't appear to have any other mechanical indications. It gets ~10-15 miles per gallon.

I bought this RV a year ago to convert into a low-budget tiny home for off-grid living. I soon discovered a number of leaks and existing water damage, and various plumbing, wires, and cables that had been cut, disconnected, or otherwise rendered dysfunctional. I attempted to fix and seal what issues I found, using silicon to plug the leaks, and eventually gutted most of the interior to remove water damaged parts and trace power connections. I took out most of the internal walls and partitions to create a more spacious floor plan and expose the electrical and plumbing systems.

However, due to life circumstances I am no longer in a position to complete this project and want to pass it off to someone who can make the most use of it.

There is a large loft space above the driver's seat that is perfect for sleeping or storage. There are grey water and black water tanks and a propane tank contained beneath the structure, and a generator that turns on when connected to the vehicle's battery system and could be an alternative power source if hooked up to a fuel source. Four of the original cabinets remain affixed to the wall at ceiling-level. A removable table with cup holders is attached to hinges on the wall where the dinette used to be. There is an AC DC power converter and control panel with extended power cord for shore hook-up.

Also included with the RV:
-original seat cushions (4)
-leveling blocks
-spare tire with cover
-hitch mount cargo rack
-RV/marine hose and heavy duty hose
-plastic drop tarp big enough to cover entire RV
-working deep cycle battery

I also have an AC unit, the original sink, a large black hard-shell cargo carrier, a wall-protector board for a wood stove, sheets of fiberglass, resin, paintbrushes, a box of spare screws, extra power steering fluid and motor oil, and some soldering supplies--all of which I will include free of charge with the RV.

I would be more than happy to talk you through everything I know about the RV and everything that I have done to it so you can be adequately prepared for what's to come. It is a great vehicle with very little mileage, a large space to work with, and a lot of potential if you have the time to work on it.

Please contact me if you are interested. I would love to pass this along..
