Welcome to the first Holiday Weekend of 2013, and what better way to spend it than with an RV… No, I’m not talking about those overgrown mansions that take up two lanes on the freeway, or are as long as a city bus, but what about something that is no larger than a typical van, like this Chinook?
This RV will be able to do it all for you, no matter what your interests are. It is equipped with the Ford 351 Windsor V-8, Automatic, and is based on the tried and true 3rd generation of the Ford Econoline, so parts are very easy to find if and when you need them. Say your into fishing on the lake… Well, this truck can take you and your boat there, and you don’t have to shell out for a cabin…
So you want to go hike in the Adirondack Mountains… you can take this vehicle there, and have enough room for provisions, and your significant other when you eventually get tired of backpacking it. You don’t own a boat, or like to hike, but you do show off your pure bred Great Dane at Dog Shows. Well, this vehicle has that covered as well… It is just big enough for the crates and equipment needed to make sure Marmaduke is prepared to place best-in-show at your next event.
However, this van would probably work best as the tow vehicle, and home away from home for anyone who fields a 24-Hours-of-Lemons entry. It has enough power to tow that crap can of yours, it can sleep several people for short periods of time while you put your wreck back together through the night, and there is even storage for all the beer you can consume.
The one neat feature about this van is the Solar Panel installed on this van that can be used when there is no electric hookup wherever you decide to venture. I would imagine that it isn’t powerful enough to run your power tools, but it could be good enough to charge your batteries for your computer, tablet, and cell phones.
This is one of those rare auctions that the vehicle will sell when the bidding closes as there is no reserve. Currently, the bidding is up to $2,025 with over eight days to go. Could you see yourself owning a relatively compact RV like this with the ability to tow your Boat, Dirt Bikes, Snowmobiles, or your Racecar to whatever event you choose?
