10 gallon fresh water tank

One screen has a 5-6" tear that was repaired with screen tape.
This van was built for camping and adventure travel. We like to "camp out the back" the vanslide makes a perfect spot to prepare a meal out of our chuck box (not included). The fridge is accessible from the 2nd row seats in front of the kitchen as well as the rear of the van so if urban camping or stuck inside during inclimate weather you can still retrieve a drink or prepare a meal inside. With the rear doors open there is a velcro insect screen (this screen is in rough shape and could use replacing) to cover the bed area opening.
The van is 94" to the top of the maxfan in down position, 92" to top of solar panel.
There are the usual chips and scratches from a 155K mile van but it generally looks good, and has been well cared for. No rust!
This van gets a lot of attention and comments! Selling in order to move on to other #vanlife projects.
Van is located in Boise, Idaho. Miles will go up as I continue to drive it
If looking for more pics of anything specific I have tons.
I’m not looking for any trades (well maybe a Ford Transit cargo van).
Van is advertised locally so I reserve the right to end the auction (if it was one) early/ or at any time.
Buy it and go!
