I’ve owned the van for almost 5 1/2 years. This van started off as a 2wd Sportsmobile in Texas, owned by an elderly couple and wasn’t driven that often. I purchased it from a gentleman in Colorado who was the second owner and had spent a year transforming into a true 4wd off-road machine. This was a project van for him and soon after he finished it he decided to move on to something else, he owned it for around a year and a half.

I have all maintenance records for the 5 1/2 years I’ve had the van as well as most of the receipts for the 4wd build and maintenance from the previous owner in Colorado.
The transmission was fully rebuilt in September of 2017. I’ve replaced most belts and hoses recently. The van was re-geared to a 4.56 ratio in March of 2022 which significantly helps the shift points in the van. New front brake rotors and pads in May of 2022. New headlights installed a couple of months ago. A bunch of other regular maintenance done.
The van drives very well and has been meticulously maintained since I’ve owned it.
The only issues that should be noted.
Fiamma awning has a couple small holes that were patched.
Center console latch doesn’t work.
Center interior light is burned out.
One of the curtain/shades is not closing properly.
The Yakima box and bike rack aren’t being sold with van.
