Title Significant history - I purchased the Westy from an older
couple in 1996 with 41k miles on it. Both of us stored in a garage.
Both of us lived in Boise Idaho. 11 years ago I moved to Flagstaff
and it's been here since. There was one year where I sold it 1999
and then bought it back 2000 (yes, same van, sellers remorse).
Overall Condition (exterior, interior, mechanical and camper parts
if applicable) Mechanically it is running really well. Just had it
in the shop for an O2 sensor and temp sensor check. Idle is good at
start. Cruises 77 mph @4000 rpm. Paint has some cosmetic small
dings and scratches, small dents here and there but not a ton
around the body. Pop top works well but screen has holes from age
(original), canvas is worn but works well Stove and sink work well.
Upholstery is excellent (no tears or holes). Cabinetry is excellent
with everything working. No cracks in dash or any camper parts. -
Known issues and/or defects No rust is visible Small transmission
leak on the bottom seal Front bushings are purchased but not
installed Rubber seals are in good shape but there are some
replacements that should be addressed in the next year or two.
Front paint is chipped from road debris (no rust) primer still
intact. I touched up quite a few spots but there are more to go.
Some of the chips on the lower sections behind the wheels have been
reprimed and then coated with the bed liner skirt. Pop top canvas
is showing its age. There are some holes in the screen and the
canvas has a couple small pin holes near the rear. The elastic on
the corners are not working well. - Major repairs The engine heads
have been resurfaced twice (1999 and 2019 new rings too). All four
wheel bearings replaced (2018) Brakes were bled and replaced (2019)
