Interesting build, but a couple of observations:

1) can't tell if you can access the passenger side slider. I'm guessing you can, but sure wouldn't want to go through the driver and front passenger doors if you can't access the slider.
2) rear seats are interesting, but I wouldn't want to sit there on a paved road, let alone a dirt road. I would think you would smack your head very quickly.

SMB-less as of 02/04/2012. Our savings account is richer, but our adventures are poorer.

They have been trying to sell that van all of 2018. There has to be something off with it or the price.

I think why it hasn't sold is because they are saying the Van build, not the van included in the price. It's probably closer to $75K+. Just my thoughts
