Just picked up this beauty!!!

A year after selling my first SMB and persuing other interests I just bought number 2. Made the long drive to northern ID to find this beauty in a heated storage unit with only 6,700 miles. Low miles yea , but it is an '05! It has most of the options available for '05 and it has a fixed top. No more flapping canvas! Looks like it might have seen one or two dirt roads during its life. That will soon change however, i'm going back on the road at the end of the month for a while. I spend most of my time in the west climbing and hiking, so if you see me stop and we can share van stories.

I like it, and WOW, those are some low miles. I think you got a brand new SMB.

That's a crazy, overstuffed couch you have there too. Was it made by Lay-z-Boy?

Re: Just picked up this beauty!!!

This whole van is that way, super plush. When I ordered my first SMB I sweated all the details. The PO of this van (who is a great guy ) just went in and got everything. Seriously the only thing this van is lacking is a winch, it has that many options. Oh and the couch is very plush and it sleeps well!
