Kermit’s Story
Kermit was originally manufactured in Germany and sold to its first owner in California. He has never seen winter or salt. We are selling him to move to Europe to be with a family member with a severe illness.
12,000 miles ago at the start of our trip we put lots of work into him and used the Covid lockdown in Mexico 4,000 miles ago for final tune-ups, so that now he runs like a champ despite his age.
We bought this van to travel through Central America and later Mexico for 15 months. Made some significant upgrades to live and travel comfortably. Installed a solar system, 50-quart ARB fridge/freezer, 4 USB Plugs, two 110V plugs and a customized storage unit. We also reinforced the pop top with fiberglass layers and installed GoWesty struts to take the load of the roof-top carrier.

Camping Details

-Pop-Top converts to full size bed (approx. twin size, 42"x65")

-Reinforced pop-top and struts to allow a loaded roof top carrier
-Roof top carrier with solar panels attached on top -- 200WP

-Curtains for all windows and windshield—Originals and in great shape
