A very fun Vanagon, I love it, but need to sell...

The frame and body are in very good shape (other than a few tiny spots, as far as I know it is rust free!)Both front captains seats spin backwards for camping, etc. Removable middle seat, set near the middle, used to have a non-stock stove and fridge (I removed those).
