keep throwing out these low numbers, it will help us all in the end!

I have my number that will hopefully entice the potential seller to sell it to me that i think is fair, so hopefully that is enough.

I'm posting this over in my main wheel thread. But just so you all know:

Looks like my van will eventually be eventually auctioned off here:
https://www.copart.com/lot/29721217/

(notice it is listed as RWD; which means they're not explaining that is a Quigely 4x4. Dunno if that matters given we don't know how much is broken from the impact to the left rear hub bits against the concrete wall)

We may have a CCV top available in the near future. One of our customers wants to swap out to ours. 4 of the 6 screens are trashed and the frame is pretty rusty from PNW storms water infiltration, but salvageable. I'd want to do a couple safety mods to it before I'd let anyone install it. I'll update when I have a solid date of arrival. It wouldn't be till late fall at earliest though, it's on a long summer trip currently.

I'm too stressed trying to salvage my summer plans, buy a new van, keep up with my job, and all that to take the lead on this idea.

But one of my "plans in progress" involves buying a sprinter crew van 4x4 and going for a DIY build and/or at least camp through the summer before having a more formal build done this winter.

So if somebody takes this route I'd ask to buy back the kitchen galley -- I think its still in fairly good shape (a single crack in the wood top).

Depending on price and if I don't get the top I'm in talks with, I could be in on a group partnout. Seems like a tough task though. Long toe back to the west coast, but I do have a spot in the garage...just gotta trim a little off the top for it to fit.

And yes, galley is all yours! The next van for you will be even better, I'm sure of it.

I would take the heater becuase it looks like there is one in the back and propane if that's for grab. Let me know if you will get that I might have a friend who might be running her trailer your direction so she could possibly pick it up for reasonable price.
