This build maximizes economical use of space and will be wellsuited to a solo traveler or a shorter couple who spends much of their time recreating.
I myself am 6'1 and travel with a large dog, do not use tobacco and clean regularly.
The van itself is in good condition, small signs of its age exist but the interior, dash, seats, console and trim are all impressively preserved.
The exterior is also very clean for its age and what little rust exists has been treated and primered. The original paint has a ceramic coating that has kept it brilliant.
There is a dent by the passengers mirror and a small bend in the bumper where some inconsiderate hit and ran. There is no structural damage to the vehicle body or frame and these later years were built to resist warping in the van walls.
All Terrain Capabilities :I have fit the largest tires possible without rubbing and get excellent traction, even in sand and loose rock. Clearances are not high but can navigate rocky trailhead and access roads.
The van was completely gone through and serviced including shocks, cam, timing gear, ignition, full tune up, much much more.. I have so many, but not exhaustive receipts from the build.
You can be confident this van will serve you well for years to come and your vanlife experience won't be living at a dealership.
I am currently traveling in the van and may be in any of the western US before January.
Please contact me with any questions at all as there is only so much I can cover here. Thank you for looking.
