1988 Volkswagen Vanagon GL with Westfalia pop-top, two burner propane stove and sink. 182k miles, automatic transmission, many upgrades. Wolfram Grey Metallic paint. Clean title.
I'm the third owner of this vehicle, and have records for every single maintenance visit and upgrade. My wife and I recently drove this van around the USA without any issues. Very little rust, very well taken care of.
The main battery is 1 year old, and the aux "house" battery is less than 3 years old.
I'm selling this van because we finished our road trip and no longer have a need for it in the city. Happy to answer any questions. It's ready to hit the road with the next owners.
