||We are selling the van for $30K
Do we like it? Yes! Would we buy it again? Yes! Would I make some changes to it in a perfect world? Yes! We are selling our van because we are going back to work and know that we will not be able to "use" it for the next five years. The refer problem is something that I have not even tried to fix, as it is winter in Alaska and I don't need a fridge. I have directions that I pulled off the internet on how to deal with the common problems that these refers have, but I have not taken the time to deal with it. If we were still not working, or even had time to use the van, we would keep it. No doubt! For two people who are somewhat agile (getting up on top for sleeping could be difficult for some)and somewhat adventurous, the van is great. Beats the heck out of one of the big motorhomes. Incidentally, one of the big pluses about the camper van compared to the "weekender" is the tent in the pop up camper. I have never been in the weekender, but have noticed the lack of the zipper down flaps that are on all three sides of the campervan. Can't tell ya how great the tent part is. We have seen the northern lights, meteor showers, the pacific surf, and a sow griz with two cubs out of the top of our van. Love it! Other great things about the van: 20 mpg. An awning that came in handy on the Baja, the deserts of Utah as well as the rains of Alaska. A 3 disc CD with remote so you can be up top with the controls. And quite a bit of storage.
All for now
