Seller's Description

Need to part with my much-loved Eurovan Camper. In excellent mechanical condition. Recently serviced + smog’ed. All service records are available for the entire history of the van. 205K Miles. Mostly highways miles. This van has been all over the western states. Averages ~19mpg 2nd owner 2.8L VR6 engine 4 speed automatic transmission 4 wheel power disc brakes Power steering Front wheel drive Front air bags Averages ~19 mpg Air conditioning. Recently serviced Power locks and windows. Seats 6 – Center bench seat was removed when I purchased van. Been in storage since. Can be included with the purchase of the van, or not. Your choice. Sleeps 4. Sleeping area – lower and loft - is approximately the size of a standard mattress Kitchen galley area is very clean. Stove only used to boil water. Smelly, greasy, oily food always cooked on camp stove outside. Cabinet water pump recently replaced Most interior light bulbs replaced w/ LED bulbs Lots of storage. I’ve added additional shelves to increase capacity and usability Factory Norcold refrigerator works, but these fridges never work very well. Always used it for dry food storage and brought along a Yeti cooler.– 12 gallon fresh water tank 8 gallon grey water tank 5.9 gallon propane tank 12,000 BTU furnace is a champ. I’ve spent some very chilly days/nights nice and warm in the cabin with the furnace burring away I’ve taken care of a couple of the know expensive repairs for these Eurovan’s Transmission Rebuilt @146K -Transmission shift flawlessly -Added External Cooler Kit for automatic transaxle to help w/ heat dissipation, enhance performance and increase longevity New Timing Chain @164K Upgrades: GoWesty Lift Kit. What a HUGE difference adding this lift kit has made to improve the driving handling, as well as reducing the worry of smacking the propane tank! 9” of clearance Kits includes: - Bilstein Extra Heavy Duty Shock Absorbers - 16" x 7.5" Alloy Wheels - Michelin Defender Tires, 235/60-16 - New tent and lift struts from GoWesty - Wet Okole cars seat covers for driver seat, passenger seat, and rear seat. The lumbar support that comes with the seat covers makes the seats super comfortable when traveling long miles - Tinted windows: Dark tint 15% - Great for urban camping, keeping the temperature down during summer month and discouraging nosy people from being able to check-out what sort of gear you’re keeping in the camper. - New Luggage Rack over top-front of van w/ upgraded stainless steel mounting brackets. Original steel bracket were terrible. Lost original luggage rack driving in a very windy storm. - Kenmore stereo w/ JBL speakers Additional recent work: - Brake pads and rotors @200K - Air conditioning system recently serviced - New engine battery - Halogen headlight light bulbs - Insulated window covers for all windows, except window above galley, which has original shade. Know Issues: - Previous owner had a minor front-end accident. Repairs were made. I’ve never noticed any issues. A-pillar on passenger side has a crack in the plastic that may be as a result of the accident. Passenger door and window functions w/out issue. - Floor in back needs attention. It’s beat-up and could use a replacement. I currently use a GoWesty rubber floor mat and carpet on top of original floor - Camper top was showing a crack along vertical side edge towards the back. Repaired w/ ABA (not ABS) specific epoxy. Following repairs, roof painted w/ truck bed liner paint w/ elastomer. Repairs made in 2020. No issues since. - Dial for air vent control on front dashboard recently broke. Vent selection can still be done manually w/ cables. Replacement estimate ~$300. - Cruise control doesn’t work. It hasn’t since van was purchased in 2016 - Very minor rust spot on upper corner of passenger door frame. That’s it for rust. Van has lived its entire life in California. Never driven in the snow. - There’s a bullseye crack in front window, upper edge on passenger side. Was repaired w/ epoxy - Minor dings/dents - All this has been taken into consideration and is reflected in the asking price. Will accept cash or certified cashier's check only.
