For some reason a lot of Europeans (and foreigners in general) call anything with wheels a 'car'. They call an 18 wheeler a car! Anyway, this is a scam. It has scam all over it, especially where the 'seller' tries to assure you he's an honest person and that it's not a scam. If you were selling something would you tell people to not sorry that it isn't a scam?

Move on and good luck,

2 is good, 3 is too many, 4 is not enough, 5 is way too many.

That is all I have to say about that!

Tell the seller to send the van to your purchasing agent at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
All I can testify is that i should not drink margaritas with anyone other than close friends who know me well because they make me say stoopid stuff! (i.e. never drink margaritas with my alpha sister in law and her friends )

Unfortunately I lost interest in the scammer before I was able to give him me 'purchasing agent's' address at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue- too funny!

I did however BUY A VAN . I won't be living the Sportsmobile dream life but hopefully i won't be living the buyers remorse life either. A friend of friends in nearby area passed on his trusted mechanic to do my inspection and I got green light on the pocatello V10 with Quigley.

Have my first van-baby! (OMG did I just say FIRST? This forum has hooked me for sure) Got her Tuesday, been catching up on other matters... Hope to go out for a short first trip next week, at which time I will decide how I want to build.... Work surface and sleep surface are primary wants. OH and my first accessory purchase was porta-potty! (Ah the simple things in life, right?) Since I almost turned my ankle on the dismount from cleaning windshield, I better invest in a personal extension squeegee next

Had a friend of friend + their mechanic look it over so I had knowledge of dings etc. XLT .... Front area is nice, engine good, overall clean enough, definitely been used for some work or another, was Enterprise vehicle. I had Tires swapped for Toyo open Country ATs (not much choice a Les Schwab and there's none of those in the east, so I went with the Toyos).(Maybe should have gone wider tho)

Quigley parts list and maintenance schedule are being emailed today.

Not quite decided on name, but my son managed to get her muddy first day and in spite of me already telling him, he confirmed she has an LSD ~right! ~ Sits so high that the mud hardly splashed up. He saw me looking at an off-road training center online and replaced that thought with a promise to take me to trails in our vicinity- his happy place- so he does Respect the Van. That may be a few weeks as he's back in college and has a big job over Labor Day weekend, I'd rather go when everyone else is not there anyhow.
Have camping planned in September too- YAY

Thank you, it is BLACK, 2011. Needs a bath (always I am sure!)

I did budget for the RIP kit! Need to call Agile and see if they have a PDF because I could not print anything that made sense to take to mechanic. It is 138 WB and did not strike me as needing it terribly when I rode shotgun. Are RIPs more needed in long WB?
