HOW TO BUY: BEFORE YOU BUY I can take the van to any mechanic in the Las Vegas area you choose. I know of two that are vanagon specialists if you want suggestions. You can pay them to check out the van and report back to you in as much detail as you require. If the van passes your standards you can buy it now here.

I'm trying to sell this before I move to Dublin for 6 months, hence the low asking price. I was going to ask $29k but plans changed. I just drove this from Los Angeles to Maine and back to Vegas with no issues other than operator error like the power steering belt hadn't been tightened and came off...those kinds of things.


HIGHLIGHTS: Newly rebuilt engine with rebuilt transmission and air conditioning. Camper equipped with new auxiliary battery, truck fridge, upgraded sink and Fiamma awning. Tricked out with Recaro seats, Fox shocks and 16 inch rims.
