Seller's Description

🚐✨ Meet Your Adventure Partner! Dive into van life with this fully decked-out microvan, perfect for eco-minded adventurers and weekend warriors alike! Fully insulated for cozy nights, packed with storage for all your gear, and sporting a sustainably built interior, this van is ready to take you from climbing excursions to serene escapes. Comes with essential extras like solar panels and an EcoFlow battery—because who needs hotels when you have your home on wheels? Ready to roll with a touch of rugged charm, it’s not just a camper van; it’s your ticket to freedom! Was that a cheesy enough opener ;) hopefully I got your attention? I put a lot of and have a lot of love for this van. Its currently cleaned as pictured, but included some with it packed. Clean Colorado title. Carfax on hand. PROS: - EXTREMELY well insulated (see notes below) - Blackout inside when curtains and window covers are up (see last two pictures before the damage pictures from the inside of the van TAKEN DURING THE DAY) - Lots of storage space - Comfy accordion 2 person bed with foam mattress (protected by removable waterproof sleeve) - >25 mpg - Solar powered internal lights. Charge it outside once every ~week - Built out using >80% recycled and scrap material, if you care about sustainability. - Rear truck tires have a lot of life in them, lift up the back so you can sleep with your head elevated, and is great for clearance. - Its extremely functional and ready to pack and go. EXTRAS: - Two large storage bins trim fit under the bed - EcoFlow River 2, 256 Wh battery included, fits on top shelf - Dokio 200 W Solar panel - Front tire chains - Car battery jumper (who needs friends?) - Extra bed leg already measured and routed out should you bang one of them and break one. Bed was built by professional carpenter and is well crafted, but could break one of you slam it too hard. - 2" hitch 700 lb tongue limit. Get a little cargo trailer or a hitch rack? - T rails on the roof of you want to put in cross bars CONS: - Its a microvan. It feels really safe and cozy at night but you wouldn't be spending much time inside and rainy days are boring. - Its not really pretty. My focus was functionality and recycled materials, not aesthetics - No builtin cooktop or anything like that. I cooked outside on a table I brought with me - Will need front tires within a couple thousand more miles. HISTORY, WHY AM I SELLING: I got this from a family member last November, it was his company van. Its been in the family company since it was purchased. I built it to go dirtbag climb. Did so for ~3 months. Now have a full time job and wont be able to do more than weekend trips, so my Subaru will do just fine and don't want to pay insurance for another vehicle. ENGINE COMPARTMENT: - Regular motor oil and filter changes on recommended schedule. Same with air filter. - New water pump and coolant - Transmission fluid flushed recently. - Front struts and bearings done a couple of months ago. - Put in brand new led lights for the whole vehicle (headlights, break, side, etc.) - spark plugs done 1k miles ago - Other infrequent maintenance: includes timing belt, accessory belts REST OF VEHICLE: - Minor blemishes: couple of dings, paint wear, crack in the front bumper, all pictured - Old decals from when it was a work van slightly visible - Life left on the rotors but front should be replaned when the front pads are next done, which should be a couple of thousand miles - Couple of thousand more miles on the front tires INSULATION: This is the vehicles strongest feature. I did not mess around with it. I HAVE SPENT MULTIPLE NIGHTS IN THE SINGLE DIGITS without a heat source or a a low temperature bag, just regular bedding (sheet, blanket, comforter). It did not get below freezing inside with only body heat. EVERY EXTERIOR FACING SURFACE (ceiling, sides, inside doors, floor) HAS BUTYL ACOUSTIC INSULATION. Like every inch lol. Maybe I didn't need that much, but its pretty quiet inside? - Roof: 3" sheeps wool, followed by heavy moving blanket, wooden plywood ribs, then original .5" foam headliner. - Sides and doors: Stuffed with sheeps wool in every nook and cranny I could get it. 3" foam insulation board for rear windows (removable). 3" foam board for large areas of the walls. Spray gap foam for edges of foam - Floor: 1.5" foam insulation board, 1" plywood, vinyl planks, all scribed to fit the van without very little gaps, and spray foam used for those. - Cabin: Extended headliner with plywood. I stored clothes up there which is insulating. Cut reflectix to fit windows, has rubber suction cups. - Door seems: I made sheeps wool filled sock "strings" to prevent any draft from the doors and add insulation. MORE CAMPING/QUALITY OF LIFE: - Large containerized storage shelves - Removable curtains between the cabin and the back. - Rear window insulation boards are removable for seeing out window when driving. - All doors can be opened, locked/unlocked from inside. - More than 20 hooks from sides of shelves and ceiling - Bungees on the ceiling for storing gear MORE ON STORAGE: Heres a list of everything I can think of that I fit in it, for reference for just how much it can fit. Also included pics of when it was packed. UNDER BED: - Whole tote of food that could fit ~4 weeks of dry or ~1.5 weeks of wet food - Tools and other things: duct tape, hammer, socket set, wrenches, screwdrivers etc. A sharpening stone for knives and axe. Extra backpacking food. Extra water filters, zip ties, extension chord, 12x8 tarp, stakes, backpacking jet stove, first aid kit. CO2 canister for soda stream. Glues and adhjesives, some nails and screws, other ties and bungee chords. - 8 pairs of shoes/boots - pair of roller blades, backpacking backpack HEADLINER STORAGE: - clothes: ~7 sets of clothes, towels, rain gear SHELVES: - floor level: 10 gal of water, fire starters and little wood stove - 1st shelf: bunch of spices, oils, water filter, stanley thermos, water bottle, ziplocs and trash bags, a couple of mason jars, paper towels, sponge and dish soap, chordage - 2nd shelf: 10" cast iron pan, cast iron dutch oven, small sauce pan, plates and bowls, colander, 8 books - Top shelf: EcoFlow battery (included) extra batteries, toilet paper, sunscreen, dental toiletries, soap, various cleaners, lotions, electric shaver, baby wipes, hair brush - Side of shelves on hooks: camping cook set with spatulas, forks and spoons, knives, cutting board, etc. hand saw.
