Seller Says
Unique overland modified Honda Element with Ecamper and tons of extras, great for PNW camping, snowboarding, mountain biking, etc.
I am the original owner of this Element EX, purchased brand new from Honda of Seattle in December 2005. For most of it's life it was a low mileage in city commuter and summer camping car with a few long road trips thrown in for fun, average annual mileage less than 11k. In February 2014 I drove to San Diego to have the Ursa Minor Ecamper installed and added several more overland travel extras for a 9 month trip from Seattle to Peru and back. We've returned to Seattle and are looking to downsize our vehicle so somebody else can enjoy this micro camper.

Basic Vehicle Details:
Honda Element EX, Sunset Orange Pearl body color, composite fender panels, 2.4L 16-valve i-VTEC engine, 5 speed manual transmission, 4wd, premium 7 speaker stereo system with subwoofer, Aux Input/CD/AM/FM radio (note: XM radio antenna removed for Ecamper install), rear privacy glass, rear wiper, power windows, alloy wheels, fold up and/or removable rear seats, driver & passenger airbags, Honda OEM floor mats, 2 key fob remotes & keys, 1 "valet" key. Clean CarFax. Clean Title in hand. Just passed emissions, renewed tabs, and changed oil with full synthetic for another 5k miles.

Price and some of these options negotiable, happy to answer questions.


Ecamper installed February 2014 by Ursa Minor. This 2nd generation model lifts higher than the 1st gen for greater interior standing height. I also upgraded the gas lifts from default 100 lb struts to 200 lb struts to assist lifting when the roof rack is loaded.
