History Purchased used 2009, 2 previous owners.
Originally from VT, sold to PA then OH, then moved to NC.

I Believe the original owner was a photographer and used the van on nature photo expeditions. 2nd owner took it on regional trips around PA and NY if I have that right. When I bought it in '09 it had about 55K mi, now (11/17) has 110K. I've driven it on several long trips around the lower 48 and Canada. Otherwise I've kept it mostly parked but drive it every few weeks to be sure everything's OK.

It had some rust issues bought it (discussed on the forum). Had some remediation done and it's been OK, but still has some spotty rust.
