This beaut from GoBoondock! Campers has been converted from a stripped down cargo van to a wood finished travel machine. She is road ready with rear view backup camera, polyurethane finished Cedar tongue and groove ceilings, Maxxair ceiling fan vent with remote control and rain sensor, new Boss cabin speakers, red oak counter top, oak panel walls and doors, under-counter storage shelves, bedside see-through shelves, metal sliding storage cabinets, pecan wood floors, full-size bed with massive under storage, new starter battery. All made with lightweight and reclaimed wood for the most sustainable fuel consumption and environmental impact.
Front windshield has reflectix, there is a sliding track blackout curtain as well as custom two-piece curtains on all rear windows. There is overhead storage shelves above the foot of the bed. All swing out doors have been outfitted with pockets to store shoes, tools, and cleaning products.
12V LED light strip is installed around ceiling. Electrical system is being built currently. I have all the parts to rig the secondary battery system (split charge relay, 12v fuse box, in-line 80amp breaker, battery isolation switch (on/off), all appropriately gauged wire for the amp load and distance being covered, 5 Switch control box with voltmeter and usb charging ports) the only component missing is the battery which I haven’t been able to afford. When you buy the van, I will either pay for the battery myself out of the proceeds, or discount the price so you can buy it yourself (up to $250)
Driver’s door had the window actuator lift replaced this year, but the window clip was lost so it will not go up the final inch to be closed completely. You can wedge a thin piece of wood to hold it up but honestly it hasn’t been a problem for us. Can be fixed with a quick, cheap trip to the junk yard and a 10mm socket. Power mirrors do not work, but once you have them set, how often do you realistically need to adjust them?
Mechanically, she is extremely sound. Drives so beautifully, the engine purrs. Idles and accelerates so smoothly. Has a lot of low-end torque; you definitely feel it. I wouldn’t worry about getting stuck anywhere. Please see all of the maintenance and replacement records, and I am happy to provide the physical copies.
My professional opinion? Might be worth looking into the fuel pump at some point when you can. (Not an emergency, just my preventative, maintenance suggestion) Sometimes when the gas tank is low (less than 3/8ths of a tank) it will have trouble starting (especially if on a slight uphill gradient). The starter and alternator both are in perfect working condition, so my only thought is the fuel pump. She works and does her job, so I wouldn’t be concerned. Just fill it up if you’re below 1/4 of a tank to avoid the issue all together. 30 gallon tank, so you’ll never get stranded without gas. I am happy to pay for the fuel pump replacement out of the proceeds when you buy the van. We can go to the mechanic together, or buy the part and do it ourselves. I leave the option to you.
Cosmetically, there are a few dents and dings. To be expected from a 20 year old classic vehicle. The body is in great shape. Small trailer hitch shaped dent in front bumper from small fender-bender. Body skirt on rear drivers side is slightly broken at the tail end. I removed the rubber trim piece that was running along the edge because it was hanging. There is some exposed metal that can easily be fixed with spray paint.
Cabin ceiling isn’t currently finished but will be by the time you drive her home. No need to really put this part, I just like being transparent.
Aside from these minor fixes, come check it out. It’s perfect, and you’ll see why. I’ve gotten a lot of interest in her but figured it doesn’t hurt to expose it to a few new audiences.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
