These are both going to be advertised in the caravan trader shortly but I thought I would advertise on here first. We are looking for $98,000 for the caravan as this includes all the extras we have had added to the caravan after it left Bushtracker, plus it isn't even a year old yet. For the F250 we are looking at $95,000 which is a bargain as it has been recently valued at $110,000 by a Ford dealer. If both were bought together then we would look at doing a deal.

You can contact us on 07 4068 9903 or on our mobile 0437026935 or by email send2holmes@yahoo.com.au

We are located in Mission beach North Queensland.

Boy, what a list of extras on both F250 and Van. Shouldn't imagine that it will take too long to sell it.
It looks like the only thing you have got is satelite TV dish up top.

Good luck Brian

We do have both as we did visit David in the Gold Coast but we have decided to keep them for ourselves unless someone really wants them.

Red Book Code FORD02JJ
2002 FORD F250

XLT Utility 4dr Auto 4sp 4x4 7.3DT
Prices based on km 80,000 - 120,000

If you have dealer that values the truck at $110000, sell it to him quickly.

I realize that you have added lots of good gear but their value on secondhand????

Yes agree with you for an average standard F250 2002 model the price would be correct but ours isn't average standard, even has less K's than the red book average so it's far from the average F250 that Red book prices are quoting.

By all means buy and add all the extras on there and see how much change you would get of $120,000. The price reflects that it is second hand although the equipment is less than a year old.

Seem that the little red book is out of touch on this one.
A look through car point and similar sites suggests much higher prices.

My 2001 model sold for $65,000 and a had a post sale offer of $67,500 if I could cancel the original deal.
Couldn't do it, still got some morals, make a deal and stick to it.

My opinion, F250's will hold prices or increase in relative values as a result of Fords decision to cease imports.

Happened with the F150 when they stopped them.

Yes, I agree Bob,
I have been following them for quite some time... I was thinking about getting another one for a while before taking the plunge here recently... If anything, the second hand prices are firming or going up right now.

I missed my F-350, so am looking forward to having this little 250 arriving tomorrow. "Lil Farm Ute"... I think it will surprise a lot of people what happens on prices in the next year or two. A little enforcement of towing laws and we could see the 4500kg capacity come at a premium, especially when the full imports are at or over the $100,000 mark, without any toys on them...

Maybe we should hang onto the F250 for a while then and see what happens! I will be gutted when it sells as it's a dream to drive.

if you have been offered 110K break the persons leg so they wont get away!

I sold my F 250 with haeps of extras ie trans upgrades , suspension , bar , custom flat tray , leather seats the list goes on with 30,000 km for 62K and that was an XLT.

I know of one that is on top condition 2004 model with new rubber , bull bar etc with 90 odd thousand on it for 45K plus gst ( Silver XLT super cab auto),

In my experience of selling 2 of these recently with lots of extras you unfortunately dont get much value from the extras at all.

Judging by Steve's comments on your thread you are selling weigh under the asking price.

I stated it was valued at 110k not offered as if it was an offer I would of accepted it gladly.

If we don't get the price we are after then we are more than happy to keep the F250 it is just that as a package the two are made for each other so it would be daft not to offer one without the other.

We are more than happy with our F truck and as I've said before I'll be gutted to see it go as I have never driven anything that makes me feel safe, is such a comfortable ride and basically makes a joy of any long distance or short come to mention it!

Why are you selling such a great setup, iy must have taken a lot of time, money and prep to get to that stage.

I have just put a deposit on a 2004 F250 on Friday and were looking at going to the factory in the later part of the year when I come back from Iraq to do the tour and order.

I am at present selling my 54" Ketch to get the money to purchase the BT and if I had sold that I would be interested in the BT and if it all happened tomorrow I would take the whole lot of your hands.

Pity the timing was not just a bit later as I know it will not last.

What a shame Stewart, I hope you sell it quickly. The story started with us migrating from the UK last April where we decided to tour around Australia before settling down for good. We got our BT a the the end of May last year and whilst waiting we took plenty of time and effort as you have noted to set the F250 up with everything we would ever need in any circumstance Australia could throw our way (or at least we hoped we did!!!!)

So we set off and had a ball during our travels through Queensland, meeting some great people and seeing some great sights, during this time it proved to be a bit hard on our kids (aged 4 and 6 at the time) we decided as a family we needed to settle down for a while and settled very nicely in Mission Beach. Every day we wake up and have a long discussion as to whether or not today we should carry on our travels but we have decided to stay here for now and set up base so our travelling home is now to turn into proper bricks and mortar and hence the sale.

So the lesson to us is that hindsight is a great thing but then if it wasn't for the BT we wouldn't be in Queensland now so it can't be a bad thing!

Hope it works out well for you and the family. Can you give me a rough idea of what it cost you to set up the F250 the way you have just so it gives me an idea.

I have set up a few 4WD's before but are interested in what things cost now. I am waiting for costings to come back from ARB to start a profile on everything.

Approx $40,000 - $50,000. Speak to Phil in RTC4X4 which are next door to Sound in Motion in Nambour as he has a brilliant team and can get most things at the same cost of some of the larger companies with a more personal touch.

To any of you "Prospective Boggers"... Having a sniff around, this is an opportunity.

This would be probably voted "The most loaded with toys possible" on both Truck and Bushtracker. If you are one of those, that can afford the best, and don't know what toys you really need, here is your chance to get both truck and van with just about everything. With two little kiddies, they did not take any chances on doing without, so both are loaded up with about every convenience possible.

Judging from the People, I think both units would have had the best of care, so it is worth the trip to inspect them. You also cannot imagine how long it takes to outfit both to this degree, you are talking months of organising and waiting for work in various Shops, and that is on top of six months at least to get a new Bushtracker.

Anyone wanting the best, a cut above, should consider this worth the travel to inspect.
