Seller's Description

I am saying farewell to my beloved camper van in order to begin a new chapter of more domesticated living. I have called this rig home for 3 years while living in the roaring fork valley and working in Aspen, but now I'm settling down in a house. *Just had the windshield replaced(Photos show the old cracked one). *For more info, message [contact info removed] The van is a rare 4x4 GMC Savana with only 66k miles on it. The extended van adds 2 feet extra length to the living space. The 4x4 conversion was done by Timberline Vans out of Denver. You can check his website out at: He installed the 4x4/6-inch lift kit and limited slip differential. Shifting into 4-wheel drive is done manually with a big shifter rod coming up to the right of the driver seat. I have typically only used the van for offroading on old mining roads out in Utah and in the high mountains near Aspen. Used but never abused. I have only been stuck once while trying to go through a sandy wash with a 3-foot bank. Luckily I had installed the winch a month prior which saved the day. I find the 4x4 and the clearance most helpful on the day-to-day commute to Aspen and the weekend excursions on deep snowy roads to access backcountry skiing areas. In the living area, I have prioritized the kitchen because I am a chef and I believe it's the most important part of a home. The kitchen area has a propane stove(removable for those extra greasy bacon moments that are better cooked outside), a vent fan/light, ample pantry storage, a cutting board pull-out, a sink, and a fridge. The sink is really only big enough to wash hands and dump dishwater. I have done my dishes by boiling water, pouring hot water into the dish, and scrubbing it gently before wiping it clean with a designated dishcloth. My van does not have a pop-top, which means everything has to be done sitting or kneeling. I've been living in vans/trucks for a long time and have never felt the necessity to be hanging out in them. I have always used them for mainly two things, sleeping and eating. All this is to say that I didn't create a space geared toward hanging out inside. The space is an aid for your adventure outside. There is a 12-inch stool that comes with the van that I have found to be a comfortable seat while cooking. For heat, I installed the German-made forced-air gasoline heater by Eberspacher. It runs off of your vehicle's gas tank and is thermostatically controlled. I just replaced the seals in it and cleaned it. It works great and has no problem heating in high elevations on brutally cold winter nights. I've used it at 12k feet and -25F. I have one big sealed AGM auxiliary battery with a 255Ah capacity for power. It is charged by both the vehicle's alternator and 200 Watts of solar. There is a pure sine 2000W Inverter for your appliances. I have used the inverter for running a 900W blender primarily, but I have also used it for charging power tool batteries, using a Dremel, and charging my Apple computer. Pure sine is important when charging sensitive electronics such as phones or computers. The fridge is the most consumptive component of the electrical system and I am pleased to say that the solar alone keeps the battery charged enough to run the fridge(but you need sunshine). I left the van parked in an airport parking lot for 2 weeks to find the fridge still running and cold and the battery still at 13 volts charge when I came back. The top of the van is equipped with 4 heavy-duty steel crossbars and a custom steel ladder for access. A large rocket box and solar panels are mounted to them. There is enough room for lumber or a ladder. The top could support a deck or platform. The front bumper is the infamous Aluminess aluminum bumper with a brush guard and a 12,000lb winch. On the back is a 2-inch trailer hitch with brake light wires. The backup camera aids in connecting to your trailer. The body of the van is painted with Raptor liner that gives it a rustic look and texture. I have two sets of tires. Studded winter tires and aggressive-looking all-terrain tires for summer. The spare is a full-size all-terrain tire mounted on a matching rim. Below is the list detailing all the features of the van. Vehicle info: Engine: 4.8L V8 Gasoline Automatic 6-speed Miles: 66,000 Year: 2017 Clean Title Registered in Colorado MPG: avg 13 w/studded winter tires, 14 w/summer BF Goodrich All-terrains (both sets included with purchase.
