1997 Volkswagen Eurovan Full Camper in excellent condition. Meticulously cared for, very clean, just had full detail and mechanical check over. Drives extremely well, unfailingly reliable. Routine maintenance done on schedule by VW mechanic, no mechanical issues in 12 years we’ve owned it. This van has outperformed most of our cars. It’s been our faithful companion on many epic road trips, and has also been a great little house on wheels for rainy soccer games and family ski days. Only selling because our kids are big and we’re getting a larger vehicle to continue our travels.
Details and extras:
*Ultra reliable V6 2.8L 140 HP engine, excellent longevity and fuel efficiency (18-22+ mpg). Cruises beautifully at 80 mph on highway, powers up mountain passes. Later models have slightly more HP but torque didn’t change much, this model doesn’t wear out brake pads and timing chains like the newer ones.
*Upgraded professionally installed pop-up tent canvas, seals and struts, door seals.
**Professionally installed suspension lift/level with upgraded 16” wheels** Game changer! Hugely improves how the van drives and corners. Without it, these vans can tilt slightly to one side, propane tank can scrape the ground when you go over little bumps or turn. The upgrade gets you off the pavement onto dirt/gravel roads to find that camping spot no one else can get to.
*Professionally installed Yakima roof rack.
*Full Kitchenette, galley sink, fresh running water, LP 2 burner stove, 4 people can dine.
*Upgraded LED lighting.
*Cold AC, propane furnace/thermostat/CO detector.
*Original Norco 3-way refrigerator. Thought about upgrading but works great and problem-free.
*Custom flooring, carpet, ½ inch rubber.
*Sleeps 2-4, memory foam toppers for both beds.
*Seats 4-6, optional bench.
*Wardrobe Cabinet, cupboards/storage throughout.
*Fresh and grey water holding tanks.
*Folding tables (2), used on the road or stored.
*Retractable blinds (some new, some original), privacy cover for windshield.
*Add-A-Room tent, attaches to back hatch.
*Custom full van cover for protection when not in use.
*Fiama levelers, emergency kit.
*Assorted storage accessories, spare water pump
*Awning needs repair – one of the legs is bent from a windstorm in Zion NP. These awnings aren’t great so had planned to replace it with a Kelty Sideroads awning that can be quickly removed when wind picks up.
