• Matte Gray 3M Vinyl wrap has begun to crack, fade, and peel in some areas - particularly on the hood and in a few other areas. - Price reduced in consideration

 

• A/C stopped blowing cold air as of summer of 2021 - Price reduced in consideration

 

• Back seats removed for more storage space and replaced with an Aftermarket Dodge folding tool Tray

 

• Airbag Indicator Light on - Dodge dealership addressed airbag recall 6/2019 and mechanic tried to diagnose the issue. It's a common 3rd Gen Ram issue.

 

• Body and interior are in excellent shape! Some minor door dings but no dents and no accidents.

 

• Hail Damage claim on CarFax from previous owner in 2008 - no visible damage on hood or anywhere that we've seen. Other than that a squeaky clean history - NO ACCIDENTS, CLEAN TITLE.

CAMPER

Camper and interior are in excellent condition and everything works - no leaks, no dents or significant damage.

This Vehicle has been thoroughly enjoyed and meticulously well maintained

both by us and the previous owners.

Tires always rotated, fluids always changed at recommended intervals

with detailed records and receipts kept on all upgrades, parts, labor, and components. 

 

This thing is a beast and well kitted out, tried and true, plug and play, and ready for many more adventures. Roxy has a legacy and she’s ready to roll.

 

With the current situation of parts availability, delays, along with staff and labor shortages,

not sure how long it would take to build a plug and play rig like this..

but I imagine well over a year and over $100k out of pocket

Lil Back Story... 

 

Our plan was a multi-year round-the-world overland journey.  We started our journey in 2019, when we purchased Roxy she was plug and play, proven and adventure ready.

 

Her previous owners thoughtfully built this rig and took exceptional care of her. They had a new 5.9 Cummins engine installed at 133k miles bc they didn’t want to take a risk with an engine knock while traveling in South America. She handled like a champ throughout all journeys - driven Alaska to Ecuador, crossed the Andes twice.. shipped back to Texas.

 

We began our travels across country from Toronto to California, stopping along the way at Overland Expo where we camped with and were hospitably welcomed by the Four Wheel Campers Owners Family. 

 

We checked off many bucket list items in the Pacific Northwest and the South West, and boondocked at hundreds of secluded BLM & Nat'l Forest spots. Offgrid for weeks at a time with no generators, no traffic, no human activity - not a soul in sight except for the wild things.

 

Our favorites included some of Americas most magnificent wild hot-springs and stunning National Parks in the spacious wilderness of Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah and New Mexico.

 

We’ve done full-time, part-time and now back to sticks and bricks. 

 

Our international overland plans got derailed in 2020, so after much thought and emotion we're exploring a different set up that accommodates a daily driver.

Hey neighbor and fellow Ram/Hawk owner! Such a small world.  Thanks for saying hello and for your good vibes. We're sad to part with her but it's time. Are you going to the Nor Cal Owner's Rally?

I've never made it to the NorCal Rally, although we like to visit Sierra Valley for birding, photography, kayaking, etc.

 

We often camp nearby on a bit of BLM or FS land.  Sierra Hot Springs is nearby, but we haven't been there since Covid.

We'll be heading to Downieville in two weeks+ for the Banff Mtn Film Festival and may go over Yuba Pass to pay a visit.
