We bought this van about 6 years ago to take to the racetrack with us. We race vintage motorcycles, and having a nice low profile camper like this was perfect for race weekends. As much as we love the platform, the miles we were covering were killing us, and we finally broke down and bought a Sprinter van instead.
We did a bunch of preventive maintenance on it as we were planning to drive it cross country on a regular basis.
Brakes all around
Very good tread on the tires, we replaced all four with new Kumho AT.
New Van Battery last year
LED replacements for the house lights
Only stuff the van could really use:
The front seats are a little rough and could use recovering/replacement.
a/c isn't working, we never really looked into it. Being an '85, I imagine it can't be that complicated.
Some body rust on the rear fenders and the passenger door, paint is tired.
House battery is toast from freezing last winter.
Gets about 11mph no matter what it's doing. All the RV stuff seems to be in great shape and unmolested - we pulled the propane tank off it when we bought it, as it wasn't looking the best, and planned to just hook up to a grill tank if we needed it. We never did. The fridge works great, and will run for a full weekend without a problem with a new house battery.
We're asking $3500 or best offer for it. If we didn't drive cross country all the time, we'd keep it - the extra comfort easily makes up for the extra fuel prices if you're only going a few hours.
I'll get some pictures uploaded - I've got some on FB now if those are available to some users.
