Wanted - 1997 or older SMB

Hi,

I'm looking to purchase an older SMB with the following specs:
- 2 w drive
- Pop top with bunk
- forward facing seat/bed (eg. RB or EB 50 style)
- fridge
- stove and water (optional)
- Ford E series prefered, but will consider Chev and Dodge.

I'm in Canada so it's got to be at least 15 years old due to Canadian vehicle import rules.
My budget is ~15K.

I've been watching this group for 6 months now, so I have an idea of the number of vehicles that come up for sale. I'm hoping with Spring coming there will be some more for sale.

Send me a note if you have one for sale.

cheers,

Hi;

Guss and gnty please update your profile with your locations. I'd like to know where the other three Canadians on the forum live!

Regards,

Gavin

Hi Guss;

There are lots of SMB's out there. We've travelled far and dragged them home. Shipping is available as well.

Try and find one that has been owned by the same owner and can provide you with a paper trail of all its' repairs and maintenance.

Drop me an email if you find one. I've found lots of ways of making it an easier process to get it home across the border.

Regards,

Gavin

I know it isn't forward facing bench/bed but thought it was a nice van.

Hi;

guss16 go check your email for a message from me about finding these things.

This one is still too high priced.

Regards,

Gavin

Just curious but you're not allowed to bring in a used vehicle unless it's 15 years or older?
