1987 2.3 GoWesty Vanagon GL Full Camper   Price: 25000
We're selling our beloved Westy. It's in great condition inside and out. Well maintained and deeply loved. 196,000 miles. $27,000 OBO cash. 3rd owner. Westy lived in Arizona about 20 years, dry interior SW Oregon: Grants Pass OR (about 8 years), outside of Ashland OR (almost 4 years), in garage, under carport, or covered with van cover. All driving done on West Coast and interior Rockies, Southwest and wonderful round trip to southern Baja. The full camper includes upper bed in pop-up tent, lower bed when sofa folds down; kitchen with propane stove, sink with 12 v. water pump, and 2-way electric fridge that also can run on propane although we have never tried.

Have all receipts for last 4 years and many from previous owner. All original manuals, shop manual, skeleton keys. Has 2.3 GoWesty engine with oversize radiator and clutch. This is a fabulous engine, strong and peppy, climbs our local mountain pass easily at 55 mph. We get 17.5-20+ m.p.g. driving at around 3500 r.p.m. 15" South African classic wheels with VW hubcaps and chrome rings. Larger wheels and new truck tires provide great stability and cornering. New spare tire mount accommodates larger wheel and spare tire. South African headlights with awesome high beams light up the desert roads for a long distance ahead.
