I've been wanting a camper van for long time. Came a cross one just like I wanted. It's a high mileage van. But it was in my price range "cheap". Already lifted with a Camburg lift, Camburg baja bumper, Teflon coated wheels and 285/70r17 's. I want to build a rear platform or dinette or maybe a little of both.
If your concerns about high mileage on the engine even in the worst case scenario a new one would run you about $5K---assuming you do some shopping around first for a good shop that works for a fair price.
Overall that's a nice looking van----hope to watch your progress.
