Seller's Description

Reliably starts every time. Right-sided driving thats surprisingly easy and fun to drive. Brought over by Motorcycle Warehouse last year and owned only by me here in the states. I've only put about 5,000 miles on it. I lived out of it for about 6 months until I got pregnant... otherwise I'd still be van living. Everything inside in the back is custom built. Its also all done where you can remove any of the interior and modify. The ceiling is wool insulated and sealed with a nice cozy fabric so if you're taller than 5'2 your head only gently brushes on it rather than hitting hard wood or metal. I'm also happy to remove any of the interior if you'd like to re-do it all yourself in your own way. Things done-on/go with the van: -wool insulated walls and ceiling -10 speed maxxfan that can push air in or out -200 watts of flexible solar panel (works better than the glass ones on cloudy days--theres space on top to add more, but I found this to be the perfect amount for me to live off in the summer and fall) -12V 150Ah lithium iron phosphate battery (and all the headache of wiring that I had to learn and complete) -theres 2 USB connectors for ease of charging/battery use -MPPT -2000w sine wave inverter -double propane stove (you'll have to get your own propane tank, but we can discuss if you are interested) -40L apical fridge/freezer -true lithium smart battery isolator (charges your batteries while you drive) -new oil filter and oil to fill (its due for an oil change, it got a fresh oil change when I first bought it) -cushions for the back seating/bed -custom bent-wood foot-pump sink with clean 5 gallon water bucket and grey water 5 gallon bucket system -storage spot for a 5 gallon compost toilet (I used one with sawdust and it was surprisingly scent free), small spot to hang clothes, places to store bigger items under the bench/bed, etc -darkly tinted back windows -the interior wood is unpainted because I was avoiding any VOC's or toxic substances in the van. its all made with so much love<3 The cons about the van: -it reads in kilometers so you have to do quick math to calculate MPH -the radio/stereo doesn't work -theres a bit of rust on the bottom -when I first bought it there was a bit of dripping water in the upper windows, the problem was solved after I did a bit of caulking on the outside edges, however, my caulking job is sub-par at the very least. -I lived in my van with my bunny, so hopefully you aren't sensitive to animals -the oil light comes on after you've driven it for a bit, I bought it like this and Motorcycle Warehouse said that the sensor needed to be replaced. I've checked the oil almost everytime I drive and it's goooood, just needs a new oil sensor. -this was a handicap transport vehicle so theres beeping that occurs when you reverse (thankfully its only inside the van and not the louder outside beeping)
