I LOVE the fact that it has my 3 'must-haves': high ceiling, indoor shower, and LOTS of storage space! Not to mention that it's fully ready to go off-grid. However, my life situation has changed and this van is no longer the best fit for me, which is why I'm selling it. Motivated to sell by the end of summer. Feel free to reach out with questions!
