1971 Adventurewagen RV Camper - Travel Ready!   Price: 17500
Summer is waiting - and the van is ready to hit the road for camping adventures!

This 4 season van is ready to take on the road to wherever you want to take her...
Bring cash and it's yours.

Well-kept Adventurewagen - this model is sought after for the ultimate in comfortable camping, no matter what the weather...plus the ability to stand up inside, instead of stooping because of a closed top. The top is aerodynamically designed to act like a sail in the wind, so it actually pushes the van down on the road, increasing stability during gusty weather. You can stealth camp very easily as well...
