Seller's Description

Adventure awaits…#vanlife $80,000 or best offer - let me know what you're thinking! I built “Mustang Sally” camper van with sustainability in mind. All of the major materials (wool insulation, bamboo walls and floor, etc) are environmentally friendly. Even the paint has no VOCs! I spent several years doing research and the build to make sure I got things just right. I wanted to convert the van into a space that had features more similar to what you would find in an apartment to make the space as livable and functional as possible (things like extra outlets or even a closet make a big difference in comfortability). The entire system is electric (no propane-so much safer!) and was installed by a professional auto electric company which specializes in RV and ambulance builds. Something that sets Sally apart from other van conversions is her battery bank - 4 Battle Born lithium batteries - that charge via the alternator while driving or idling. You can also plug in via a regular 120V plug OR a 30amp RV hookup if you’re planning on staying in one place for a while. I lived in her for about a year while travel nursing- she could use some aesthetic finishing touches but is completely live-in ready as is. My van life journey has come to an end, but I’m looking for someone who wants to keep Sally’s adventure going! Happy to bring her to you if you’re not in my area, too - we’ve driven across the country a few times already.
