200,000 miles


I'm the 3rd owner of the truck, it's been meticulously maintained with a log of all work that's been done over the years.  The truck has a "Waldoch" package, where Waldoch took the truck and put a custom paint job (it still has the original paint job) and modified the interior with wood paneling and super comfortable leather RV seats.  I built the cabin on the back with the goal of making the most comfortable and homey offroad overland rig possible. 

The truck house took about 2 months to build.  It's got a wood stove and a diesel heater for the winter, and I saw the woodstove for a portable air conditioner in the summer.  The truck house was built for living out in the extreme cold of Alaska, I've spent several nights where temperatures were - 40 F and it's still toasty warm inside the camper. 

Both couches fold out into a big comfortable bed, there's an oven for baking, a toilet, TV, there's even an outdoor shower setup attached to the roof.  The backporch is great for drinking coffee and watching sunrises or just sitting outside in the rain / drying my kayaking gear out when it's raining.  So far, I wouldn't change a thing about the build.
