We’ve This surplus military truck, a 1993 Ford F-350 4×4 Ambulance Overland Camper, is for sale, but it could be the ideal overlander starting point. The current owner of this 1997, Stewart & Stevenson M1087 FMTV, according to the Cars and Bids website, purchased this rig in June of 2018. The owner then set about transforming this former mobile military command centre into a practical RV. The Stewart & Stevenson M1087 FMTV’s enormous command centre space was used to create a pleasant living space with a full bathroom, kitchen with stainless appliances, and a bedroom big enough for a king-sized mattress.
The 6.6-liter Caterpillar inline-6 diesel engine that powers the Stewart & Stevenson M1087 FMTV produces 290 horsepower and 520 lb-ft of torque. This powerful diesel engine has a towing capacity of 21,000 pounds and is coupled to a 7-speed Allison automatic transmission. The Stewart & Stevenson M1087 FMTV has locking differentials and a central tyre inflation system for even greater off-road capability.
The former military truck was transformed into a magnificent living area thanks to this comfort-focused build. A 60-gallon freshwater tank and a Girard Products GSWH-1M tankless water heater and water filtration system were added by the owner. The original truck’s military-grade heater is used to heat the cabin, while an LG mini-split AC unit is used to cool it. Stainless steel is used extensively in the kitchen, which includes a big Vitrifrigo DRW180 refrigerator and freezer. Nissan is giving Frontier buyers a roof top tent addition if they want to explore overlanding on a more budget-friendly basis.
The M1087’s new electrical system, which includes a unique solar roof configuration, was installed by the owner. The 120volt system is powered by Guangzhou Felicity Solar Technology LiFePO4 battery packs. Solar panels power a sophisticated electrical system that includes solar controllers and inverters. To keep residents connected, the owner installed a Wi-Fi network and a WeBoost cellular signal amplifier. For a chance to purchase this one-of-a-kind design, place your bids on Cars and Bids today.
