Have my first van-baby! (OMG did I just say FIRST? This forum has hooked me for sure) Got her Tuesday, been catching up on other matters... Hope to go out for a short first trip next week, at which time I will decide how I want to build.... Work surface and sleep surface are primary wants. OH and my first accessory purchase was porta-potty! (Ah the simple things in life, right?) Since I almost turned my ankle on the dismount from cleaning windshield, I better invest in a personal extension squeegee next
Had a friend of friend + their mechanic look it over so I had knowledge of dings etc. XLT .... Front area is nice, engine good, overall clean enough, definitely been used for some work or another, was Enterprise vehicle. I had Tires swapped for Toyo open Country ATs (not much choice a Les Schwab and there's none of those in the east, so I went with the Toyos).(Maybe should have gone wider tho)
Quigley parts list and maintenance schedule are being emailed today.
Not quite decided on name, but my son managed to get her muddy first day and in spite of me already telling him, he confirmed she has an LSD ~right! ~ Sits so high that the mud hardly splashed up. He saw me looking at an off-road training center online and replaced that thought with a promise to take me to trails in our vicinity- his happy place- so he does Respect the Van. That may be a few weeks as he's back in college and has a big job over Labor Day weekend, I'd rather go when everyone else is not there anyhow.
Have camping planned in September too- YAY
