The price would have to depend on whether or not it comes with the neon fish.

The midget moto rider is almost 13 now and the little one is gonna be 6 . The "Vobile" is getting a little small for a family of 4 and two dogs. . Our last trip was very cramped. I love it and will probably keep it. But a 4x4. Diesel truck and toy hauler will fit our future camping needs better.

Killer van, but wow does it look a lot more appealing with all the paint intact. Repaint before selling?
