Seller's Description

I lived fulltime in this van for 6 months traveling and working remotely, and now I'm back to domestic life and ready to pass it on to someone who will use it more! I've done normal work weeks on BLM land, getting cell reception via the powerful cellular antennae, filtering water from a river, and garnering electricity from the sun. MECHANICAL - Rare 4 cylinder diesel with 7-speed transmission gets close to 20mpg on highway. - Knobby tires with about 10,000mi on them - Recent maintenance: new cabin A/C, transmission service, oil change, new power steering system BUILD - Interior cabinetry built with marine-grade Mahogany, including wall and ceiling paneling, making for a lovely homely interior and incredible durability and resilience to water damage or mold. - Diesel cabin heater: top-end German (Eberspacher) heater sips fuel from the main vehicle diesel tank, on timed thermostat - Sound and thermal insulation on floors, walls and ceilings. - Custom-welded steel bed frame   - Blackout curtains: Magnetic insulated window covers convert to stealth mode - Tons of storage cabinets and easy-latching drawers. Pass-through space under bed. - Roof rack with space for a longboard - Floors are a single sheet for durable, water-proof use, with invisible magnetic attachments in the floor if you want to install magnetic-snap carpets   - Passenger seat swivel - Bench seat with Lagun swivel table - Small closet for hanging garments  ELECTRICAL - 3 ways to charge:  solar, alternator and shore power: 320w solar, Victron DC-DC smart charger draws from the alternator automatically when driving, external shore power inlet allows plugin to RV hookup or extension cord. - 2000w Victron inverter/charger (for AC power- ie normal home electrical outlets)  - 12v DC system with BlueSea fusebox - High-gain cellular antennae : 7-in-1 antennae system for dual-band, dual-modem 5G compatible cellular internet system. Best internet setup I've seen in any van or RV. - Maxxair fan, LED ceiling lights, USB charging port WATER + KITCHEN - 20 gallon fresh water tank with shape designed around wheel well for ideal space efficiency - High-end Kraus faucet, butcher block counters - Marine-grade Isotherm DC refrigerator - Cooking via induction; hotplate-style so you have a large countertop when not in use - Two-stage water filter means you could filter river or lake water into the tank- it is a 0.02 micron filter which is finer than the pump-style filter you would use backpacking - Bosch electric water heater - 5 gal wastewater tank with stealth drain - 10 gal Rooftop solar shower (Yakima RoadShower) - Water pump is SeaFlow 55 marine-grade water pump mounted on a silencer kit.
