Seller's Description

Woody is a classic with very low miles for his age. We’ve had SO MUCH fun taking him on many adventures, but it’s time for us to get something bigger. The great bits: I found him in 2012 with only 38,000 original miles. He runs great, is small enough to easily park anywhere, and has exceptional ground clearance. I’ve spent countless hours fixing up the interior and creating a super-cozy nest. It feels like you’re nestled inside a giant, soft smiley face! -2-burner propane stove -3-way refrigerator/freezer (propane, shore power, 12V) -Sink with running water -Flush toilet OR urinal (I removed the toilet to allow easy access to the interior from the rear door and replaced it with a urinal, but I have the toilet and it’s easy to put back. -Valved hose for running water at the back door. -Large built-in fresh water and black water tanks -Input port to connect to pressurized shore water supply -House battery runs water pump and lights, charges from alternator -Built-in converter to allow plugging into shore power -Second 100 aH sealed AGM battery with 400 watt inverter to run christmas lights, charge phones and laptops. I’ll throw in my battery charger. -Built-in 6 lb propane tank runs the fridge and stove -Side bench converts into a full-sized bed. Overhead storage area slides out for 2 more to sleep if they’re not claustrophobic (ie kids). I use it for camp chairs and other large gear. -Bluetooth stereo installed in 2016 -Dash AC and heat work great -New tires with about 20K miles on them. Still a bunch of life (see pic) -2” receiving hitch and towing harness -I’m 5’8” and have a couple inches to spare under the AC unit with shoes on. The rest of the space has more headroom than that. -More storage than you can shake a stick at. I re-designed all the back storage areas, adding shelving inside cabinets and closets, improving closet useability and access. -I replaced the channel gasket on two of the three sliding windows. I have extra gasket to do the third window. -Driver and passenger seats swivel around to face the back -Insulating window covers for all windows -Two seatbelts on the back bench. -Five windows have bug screens. I also made a custom bug screen for the cabin door. -Overhead AC unit may or may not work. It worked when I bought the van, but I never used it. I tried turning it on years ago and nothing happened. It might just be a fuse, but I haven’t had time to investigate. -Cabinets and walls are painted a rich yellow. Wood trim is natural oak. Pale purple fur over fridge, side window covers, and padded areas. Purple vinyl bench seat cover. Moss green bench seat back cover. Black seat covers on front seats -Hard rubber flooring (easy to clean) -I have the removable table and legs. You would have to cut holes in the rubber flooring to access the receiving holes for the legs. -I’ll include a set of leveling blocks, drain hose and jar of additive for black water tank, fill hose for fresh water tank, and several other items that should stay with Woody. -Removable bike rack holds three bikes. -I have all my maintenance records and all the original owner’s manuals for equipment. -There’s a story behind the wood signs. I’ll leave them if you want them or take them down if you don’t -He’s had regular oil changes and check-ups Major Repairs I’ve had done: Transmission flush and fill at 46K Fridge check and clean 2013 Rear shocks at 49K Replaced propane regulator at 50K Replaced valve cover gasket at 55K New tires at 56K New front pads and rotors and repacked wheel bearings at 61K New battery in 2018 Replaced oil pan gasket at 68K New rebuilt transmission, rear main seal, mounts at 72K (still under warranty) Replaced oil pressure switch at 73K New dash AC, serpentine belt, blower motor, water pump, wheel seal at 74K The Not Entirely Awesome: -The paint job is flaking off on several of the panels (no rust though!) -Back in 2015 (about 20K miles ago) the “Check Engine” light came on. The mechanic couldn’t figure out why. -Back in 2016 I was slow-motion T-boned by a kid in a minivan. It dented the passenger door and both cabin doors. There was no damage other than denting the door panels, and now the passenger door has a bit of a gap when closed. His insurance company didn’t want to attempt to replace the doors, so they totaled the vehicle. It now has a “Rebuilt from Salvage” title and a “meh” sticker on the boo-boo spot. -Parking brake indicator light is stuck on Woody has been a joy to fix up and take on adventures. He has a ton of life left in him and I hope he goes to a fun new owner ready to continue the journey.
