Prepare yourself for memorable adventures far and wide with this classic camper van. Not only is it visually appealing inside and out, but the mechanics have been maintained to back it up, so all you need to bring is your wanderlust spirit.
After 4 years of adventuring through Oregon it's time for the precious van we call "She", to bring joy to new owners. It has been a weekend warrior for us, not a daily driver, though it certainly could be. Overall the van is in great shape and has been serviced regularly by Trafton Foreign Auto (Air Cooled Specialists). We are sad to sell, but have decided we would like a high top camper van.
We are only the 3rd owners of this unique van. It has been garaged for all but 1 year of its life and it shows. The paint is overall in very good condition with a few rust spots under window seals, but no seam rust.
Engine was rebuilt in 2000, Odometer currently reads 38,260, but odometer was broken for 5 years. Including the previous owner's estimated miles the rebuilt engine has about 55,000, but overall the van probably has less than 100,000 miles on it. You can tell by looking at the see pics that She is in great shape and will charm your pants off in person.

Camper details and things included:
The only changes we made to the interior was remove the upper back cabinet over the bed (we called it the "head banger"). We did not use it for storage and preferred to have more head room. But we have the part and it can be easily re-installed.
It has a functioning original Dometic fridge and propane stove with a full propane tank.
It has an operational sink, but we know the spigot systems need to be replaced (manual, not electric) and it needs a new fresh water intake valve. Not expensive parts, but the sink was never a priority for us to use on our adventures.
