Look no further! This adventure van was custom built to get you off-the-grid and enjoying everything the PNW has to offer. In addition to being off-road ready, the interior is built-out with a custom bed platform, cabinets, and a rear pull-out drawer system to house your outdoor kitchen and all the gear you could ever need. Additionally, the insulated floor, doors, and ceiling will keep in the warmth during the winter and help keep it cooler in the summer months. Did we mention the floor is waterproof luxury vinyl plank? Perfect for solo, couple, or homie travel! Legally equipped with seats and seat belts for two. And, when it’s bedtime, cozy up together on the Full XL mattress, or split the build by removing the middle plank to create two bed platforms perfect for you and your friend’s sleeping pads. This isn’t your average Chevy Express Van. We designed and made “Goldie” what she is today to take us on adventures, keep us safe, and keep us organized. We have kept a full service log since our initial purchase — which we’re happy to give the new owner — and all installs have been done by certified mechanics. This vehicle is in excellent mechanical condition due to meticulously (obsessively?) choosing preventative maintenance. We never built this with the intention of selling or flipping. Everything purchased, installed, and maintained was always carefully considered and done with immense care. So, why are we selling? Honestly, it’s just that as our life evolves, our overland camping needs are evolving too. All we can hope is that Goldie will find a new adventure seeker that will love her as much as we do. Aftermarket Upgrades: Engine: Reprogrammed ECU for maximum MPG and to compensate for tire/wheel size alteration, K&N Airfilter, New Dual Terminal Platinum Battery in Dec 2019. Transmission: Brand new GMC Transmission installed by mechanic Oct 2018. Transmission only has 24K miles on it.
