Seller's Description

109k original miles, have put 15k on in 3 years ago and I’m the third owner. Meticulously maintained, oil changes and fluids checked every time I stop for gas etc. Has spent most of its life in the desert/SW. Runs super smooth and cruises on the highway, but I’m usually camping out in the middle of nowhere. Just had a full inspection at Oceanside Imports. Did a full tune up and found no other issues. She's ready for all your summer adventures! Automatic (shifts great) and water cooled, added power steering but kept the awesome big steering wheel. All original interior except for the fridge delete that opens up a ton of storage with a shelf. 2 burner stove with exterior propane tank and Shurflo faucet. Z bed and swivel seats. Great condition pop top canvas with 3 vents. Bentley manual, kill switch for safety, blackout/reflective window covers for stealth and spacious cargo bag on top of the van as well as some other random accessories. Vangaroo by Voguel Works Designs replaces the rear hatch insulation with a ton more storage. Screens for both slider and rear hatch and rhino design studio center console which is so nice. Truly ready to move it full time or part time. 100w solar panel on top, 140ah deep cycle battery, renogy bluetooth sensor so you can check all stats from the app. Alternator charges the accessory battery if there isn’t a ton of sun, but I’ve never had the battery get below 60%. Lots of ports on the dash and under the bench seat to keep all your devices charged. Game changer compared to portable solar and batteries. There is a controller for the lights by the bed but they’re also connected to a bluetooth app. Work done last year: New fuel tank, roll over valves, seals. All new hoses and clamps from tank to engine. New fuel filter and fuel injector seals. Replaced every front end bushing with powerflex. Replaced upper and lower ball joints. Cleaned, painted, rust treated all suspension parts. Installed complete new power steering rack, bolts, shaft, coupler, and rag joint. Replaced steering hoses to the rear. Koni adjustable shocks and schwenk westy springs. Complete transmission reseal and added cooler. Replaced all brake and heater hoses. Doesn’t have an exterior slider door handle. Honestly doesn’t bother me and works as theft protection but it’s an easy fix. Some rust from an old sink issue and on the rear hatch from backing into a pole. I keep the upholstery covered but it just needs a good deep clean with a wet vac. Non-smoker. I love this van and have put so much time, energy, and love into her over the past 3 years. I have lived in her full time for the past 2, and have never had a breakdown or serious issue. She is truly ready to move in for weekend trips or full time. I just bought a new van with more space and I’m excited for another person to experience the joy of a vanagon.
