TAKE THE TOUR

This Adventure Habitat™ started as a fleet-maintained California government handicap vehicle with only 65,000 miles. They are by far the most reliable and desirable pre-owned vans on the market and they last forever. It’s a FlexFuel vehicle!! That means significantly lower prices when you choose E85 at the pump ($2 less per gallon in California last we checked).

We built Proto Habitat with one intention – to empower you to experience more and deepen your connections while you venture out. It has everything you need for epic adventures and creature comforts to keep you going strong wherever the path may lead. Everything in this build is brand new including all of the body modifications.

Proto Habitat is lifted, upgraded, and outfitted for serious overlanding juxtaposed with a modern-minimalist interior created as a calming space. It can can take you anywhere on a 6″ lift by Weldtec Designs with Fox Shocks and steering stabilizer, rugged oversized spaced ProComp wheels and KO2 all-terrain tires matched to aluminum running boards, auxiliary lights, a swingout tirerack and side ladder by Aluminess, a complete tow package and more.

Featuring a sky-window so you can gaze up at the stars from your transforming queen bed. A comfy day bench, front swivel seats, and a multiposition swivel table helps you to relax after a long day of exploration. Utilities are powered from 3 charging sources (200 watts solar/driving DC-DC/standard AC) with 400 amp hours of stored power or you can choose to plug in at a campground. Water is also available from a 30 gallon fresh holding tank or you can hook up to plumbed water.

A fridge, electric stove, water heater, premium sink system, and outdoor shower keep you clean and fed wherever you go. Dimmable lights set the mood over modern-minimalist shaker style cabinets and hardware. And a stowable camp toilet completes your home-away-from-home.

We crammed everything possible into this prototype build, so please check out the Features and Photos sections for more.

Note: images with model and dog are staged. This camper has never been used, slept in, cooked in or anything else. No pets have ever been inside the vehicle. The two decorative cushions are included as is a 20amp service pigtail adapter, documents, and other odds and ends. The duvet, pot, mugs, succulents and other props are for demonstration only.

California Residents: we will include current smog certificate and registration through November 2023

* Van incurred a small dent on front driver’s side fender while at shop – no paint peel. We have already reduced the price by $3000 to compensate for your time if you choose to repair it ($200-500 new or used stock or $500 for a pair of fiberglass upgrades from Weldtec Designs).

We LOVE EVERYTHING about Proto Habitat!

We LOVE that this 3/4 ton V8 with FlexFuel is super powerful, reliable, and can run less expensive E85 fuel. We LOVE the aggressive stance, but really appreciate how many more roads it can now handle. We also LOVE that it can tow up to 6500lbs so you can bring all your toys or help your buddies out of a jam.

With full off-grid and shore capabilities, we LOVE that you can boondock anywhere and also get the most out of campground visits. We LOVE the mid-raised roof which makes moving around the cabin easier while the 360 degree windows and sky-window makes you feel like you are a part of it all. We also LOVE that it is simple to operate yet gives you a robust system and the ability to keep track of everything using top-notch controls and Bluetooth monitoring.

At half the price of comparable campers, we LOVE that anyone can afford this awesome hand-crafted Adventure Habitat™ with all of the bells and whistles you need to #liveyourwildest. Because we only build in small numbers, we are able to provide personalized support as you learn how to get the most out of your new camper.

Super clean, single-owner, fleet-maintained California government handicap transport with only 65,000 miles. The Ford E-Series are the best and most reliable vans ever built, especially the powerful 4.6L V8. This is a three-quarter-ton E-250 SuperDuty extended window van with a complete tow package (6,500lbs), AdvancedTrac RSC, and the desirable FlexFuel option which can run on less expensive E85 gasoline or regular grades.

Year/Model: 2012 Ford E-250 SuperDuty

Mileage: 65,000 Miles

Engine: 4.6L V8 EFI

Fuel: FlexFuel (E85) + Regular Gasoline

Perfect for adventurous people who want the versatility to go anywhere and also crave creature comforts after a long day of exploration. PROTO HABITAT would be a good match for people who want to explore beyond the campground and down backcountry roads for a few days off-grid, but also appreciate rejuvenating outings at established campgrounds.

It has tons of valuable upgrades so you can feel prepared for any situation, yet remains simple to operate and maintain. This is a good match for humans who want the most useful features of a premium campervan but want to save more of their hard-earned income for fuel, supplies, and adventures.
