*Reduced* 1999 Volkswagen Eurovan Winnebago Camper Price: 37500
For sale is my extremely well maintained (since I've owned it) 1999 Volkswagen Eurovan Winnebago Camper, with 106k miles. Clean title in hand. I purchased this van in 2016 from a Porsche enthusiast in San Juan Capistrano, CA with 95k miles on the odometer. I drove it to Los Angeles, where itís lived and been driven for the last 10k miles. Since ownership, the van has never left CA; itís spent most of its time at the beach, in Mammoth and camping up at Kern River. I never used it as a daily driver or commuter, and itís always been a non-smoking van.
First, the mechanical:
When I brought it home, I immediately had a 30-point inspection completed and the following services: spark plug, oil, transmission, brake, power steering, fuel induction, breather hose and batteries. I also had the serpentine belt and filters replaced, and welded a new muffler.
If you know a lot about these vans, then you know about the pesky Ďcheck engine lightí issue (just google it). My van was no exception. I spent a ton of time and money investigating and replacing parts, including the EGR solenoid and ignition coil, and had the AC compressor completely removed, flushed and replaced with a new one. I also had the alternator replaced. I finally resolved the issue in August 2018 when I had the timing chains replaced. That was no small job; the work included removing the transmission and then replacing all timing chains, guide rails, tensioners, gaskets and seals.
In addition to the timing chains, I had a lot of work completed at Broad Street (aka Westy Werks) up in San Luis Obispo. They are considered among the best VW Bus/Eurovan mechanics in the entire country (again, google it). This included an oil change, and had the brake system, steering, suspension and fluid levels inspected. I replaced the crank case valve, brake booster vacuum hose, upper and lower ball joints, tie rod assemblies, engine and transmission mounts, under shield mounts, air flow meter and had all of the spark plugs, ignition wires and coil replaced. I have detailed maintenance records of all the work I have completed.
Now to the fun stuff (non-mechanical):
While at Westy Werks, I did the following:
Purchased and installed the GoWesty Eurovan Lift Kit w/ Michelin Defender tires and upgraded to 16Ē black wheels.
I had the lower body texture coated (black)
Purchased and installed GoWesty Eurovan Trailer Hitch and wiring harness
Purchased and installed GoWesty Eurovan Pop-Top Locking Lift Struts
Purchased and installed LED exterior front and rear lights
Replaced rear shower hose and nozzle
Purchased and installed GoWesty rear door net (keep the bugs out!)
Purchased and installed GoWesty upper bunk board for the pop top tent (to replace the flimsy/unsafe OEM bunk board)
Separately, Iíve added the following since ownership:

Replaced the Refrigerator Vent Cover and Disc Inserts, painted black
Yakima bars with DaKine surf rack pads
Driver and Passenger premium front carpet mats
Jensen VX3012 head unit with flip out screen, Bluetooth and DVD player functionality

Added note (6/11): I never used the refrigerator, stove or sink when I camped. I ran the sink and lit the stove when I first bought it to ensure both worked, but I always cooked and washed everything outside. I never used the refrigerator as I had been told it ran inefficiently. Instead I chose to use my coolers to keep food/beverages cold during trips.
Update (6/17): The EV was due for smog check as part of the registration renewal. Took it in this morning, and it passed; good for 2 more years. The current registration is up to date to 2020.
