Just finished an 8,000 mile road trip, saw everything I wanted to see, now have to get back to business for the next few years. Depending on terrain the truck and trailer combo averaged 13.5mpg in the mountains to best of 16mpg in the flat lands. Living systems in the camper still need some finishing, I was limited to the dates for my adventure so there are still some items to attend to, but all of the hard work is done, and my trip was enjoyable and successful. This was a stock truck that lived its entire life in Yuma, AZ so it is 100% rust free, I have done all the work to this myself and can discuss in details its features and construction. $20,000 for the truck and trailer combo, would consider selling the trailer or camper separate. I own everything outright so might consider trade + cash. Email is best, reach me at: westcoastmags@gmail.com

WOW...that is a sweet combo deal...I would love to have the space to keep this for a bike racing basecamp...looks like that trailer would hold quite a few bikes...
Just wondering what kinda trades would you be willing to consider...? Trucks?...Motos?...

I can work on getting some interior pics. I use the trailer for many uses, would sell the trailer for $2000. I do not have anything in particular that I am looking for. Thanks to all for the compliments, all PMs have been replied to.
 
Very nice setup! That truck is nearly bomb proof! Looks really clean on the outside too. Here in MN that truck would look like Swiss cheese by now... Good luck with the sale.

Interior Photos as requested. These are from when I first acquired the camper unit. The A/C unit has its own power cord so you can plug in and operate seperately from the camper unit.

I would typcially agree BUT this is a Cummins powered Dodge = more $$$, plus a service body = $$$, plus a custom fit camper = $$$. Heck I just bought a '97 Cummins powered Dodge and a FWC and spent $14K between them and that's with no extras. Price is not out of line for what you are getting. If it was just the truck only, heck ya. YMMV

$18000 sounds quite high for a 98 Dodge! Maybe Ford or Chevy but even then mileage better be under 100k!
98 Dodge with a P-pump twelve valve cummins is a very rare bird, especially with the quad cab package. I would have to say its not a bad deal, 20k for the whole package.

Good luck with the sale. Looks like a great setup.

Mind if I ask where you got the 3500lb/8 lug axle? I'm looking for one for my M101A2.

Trailer Interest

Let me know if the deal does not materialize. I definitely might be interested in the trailer.
