In the pic in the description and featured in the video (which seems to be shot at Lost Lake in Mt Hood)...I'm surprised the female model didn't have 1/2" goosebumps emerging from that lake.

Well, that was probably the first Amazon video I ever watched!

And yes, we have a kindle that travels with us. Quite convenient actually.

I like the flash of the GW third brake light on the rear window at :56 seconds into the video

I found this months and months ago--but I wasn't QUITE sure it was a Vanagon! What year and variation is it?

Shocked

I take my ancient Kindle 'Keyboard' along in Winston, and read in either the reversed front passenger's seat, or on the rear bench. I have the ports and apparatus to charge it ready in the Van. Reading in beautiful surroundings in peace--or in a pouring rain--is a wonderful part of Westy camping.

Best!

Best!

The van either has gas fillers on both sides - or more likely the video editors reversed the image.

If it where mirrored, the edge of the road would be in the foreground wouldn't it?

White line in the reflection, white line in the background, double-line in the center. Van was driving in the literal middle of the road... definitely reversed image/video, IMHO.😊
