Selling converted campervan!
I am selling my converted campervan because I am buying a new one. this was my first van and I bought it a few years ago as a retired AT&T work van. With proper maintenance these things can easily hit 300k miles and keep going. It currently has about 135k miles and is located near Dallas, Texas (Arligton). I have replaced a whole list of parts as part of preventive maintenance, not because it broke down, you can see the full list below. stuff that goes bad on vehicles between 120 and 140k. I took it to Alaska last summer from Texas and back with no issues . The van is read to go, it does not need any engine work because if you look at the list below you will see that its ready for the next 100k miles. This was my first van and the only reason I am selling it is because I am currently in the process of building a new van. Feel free to call me with any questions. The specs are below. Please read the maintenance list I am very detailed with maintenance and kept up with everything. please see the list below and ask me any questions. the difference between this van and others is that its ready to go and I have details and easy to read maintenance records, I can also tell you and show you everything about the van and how to operate and maintain it, even if you know very little about cars. Also if you have time we can chat about campervan travels, tips and tricks etc, I can show you pics ( I have over 100) of me working on the van, what parts I used etc. I used to race on an amateur race team where we build the car ourselves so I did all the work on this van with care. I want to ensure the new owner is comfortable knowing that the van was properly maintained and is reliable.
