What's the likelihood that the owner properly changed fluids based upon time & age versus mileage as most people likely due?
I know NOTHING, I'm sincere in my questions. IDEALLY, would you prefer a 2008 van with 7K miles, or a 2008 van with 35,000 miles?
Are there any long-term Sportsmobile forum members here who live in the Orange County area who have both KNOWLEDGE & EXPERIENCE who would be willing (FOR $$) to do a "Pre-Purchase Inspection" of the van for me if I decide I'm serious about buying it?
Anyone knowledgeable / experienced forum members who have thoughts / opinions on this van who would like to share them with me, please comment or feel free to direct message me.
I realize this is not a 4x4, that actually might even be a plus in my book as I think 90% for MY use would be highway miles and hard packed maintained gravel roads.
I REALLY wish this van didn't have an indoor shower & so much built-in storage. It does appear to be really tight inside.
