Re: The Vanther

Did it really only have 600 miles on it when you bought it, or is that a typo?

Nice looking van, both before and after your upgrades!

I found it on the web. Saved some money going that route and I prefer the cloth seat for sleeping purposes. Here's a photo of one folded up.

I have always loved black and always will. Fortunately I live in Oregon and any time it's warm in the sun it will be a welcomed change... haha.

Nice looking setup! Rob and the crew at VS are great. We've been enjoying or VS rig since fall of 2010.

Kelso snow is flying! Let's make sure we hook up. My sofa bed is due in any day. My buddy just got a new rmk pro for snowmoboarding.

Yeah, it'd be rad to meet up and have a bigger sled crew out there. Sounds like your buddy's going to be setting track on deep days!
