Seller's Description

Meet Ruby Tuesday! A 2001 Chevy Express 3500 with 214,000 miles and many tens of thousands more to go. Serious buyers only, please! The van was owned by a mechanic who transformed it into a camper van. He rebuilt the engine himself at 178,000 miles. It still runs perfectly. He also added a new $4,000 transmission with a 3 year/100,000-mile warranty, for which the 3 years have expired last summer. He sold the van in 2020 to new owners at around 189,000 miles. The couple added new tires, shocks, alignment, brakes, and a fuel pump before they resold the van to another couple in the beginning of 2023. The next couple travelled across the USA and Canada in it until they sold the van to me in July 2023. During their ownership, they added new power steering, a new break pump, a windshield with warranty, and new rear differential. I’ve been living in the an full-time during my senior year at school and have added a new AC compressor, crankshaft position sensor, shocks again, frequent professional oil changes, and plenty of more storage (food pantry, closet). I’m selling it because I will be graduating soon and moving to Europe. Please see below for all the amenities the van offers. The van needs a new paint job, but it does not leak or burn oil. I just got a new registration in March which was $217, and the smog check is still valid until next year. All amenities (please see below) are working. If interested, I would leave the kitchen utensils, bedding, camping gear, etc. - 200 W of solar for 200 Ah of batteries - Battery bank also charges off of alternator - 12 V to 110 V pure sign inverter to run electrical devices like a toaster, laptop charger, kettle, etc. - 12 V fridge and freezer - Dimmable lights - 25-gallon water tank - 4x filtration system for the sink - Spigot to connect retractable hose and shower/rinse off outside - Blackout curtains - 8-inch memory foam bed (super comfy!) - Coleman propane stove - Propane heater - Foam insolation - Portable toilet that I use with biodegradable bags and animal bedding - Portable shower - Bluetooth head unit - Reverse camera - Small folding table
