I've been wanting a camper van for long time. Came a cross one just like I wanted. It's a high mileage van. But it was in my price range "cheap". Already lifted with a Camburg lift, Camburg baja bumper, Teflon coated wheels and 285/70r17 's. I want to build a rear platform or dinette or maybe a little of both.

If your concerns about high mileage on the engine even in the worst case scenario a new one would run you about $5K---assuming you do some shopping around first for a good shop that works for a fair price.

Overall that's a nice looking van----hope to watch your progress.

What's "high-milaege"?

I've got 366,000 on my V10. Even in severe service like in a Repo truck, it'll go 500,000+ as long as its maintained.
