The "Nuts and Bolts"
The Kitchen is fully functional as you can see here. Water runs, fridge keeps things cold, and the two burner stove works great and runs off of the 3 gallon propane tank.
If you plan summer time camping, this is a must. This is the original netting and it has snaps around the outside to keep it in tight. I didn't realize it came with this until after I bought the van. It was in a small storage box and we became pretty excited.

Photo is from front passenger wheel looking backward.
Photo is from rear passenger's side wheel looking toward engine. You can see that rust has gotten to the exhaust in parts. Many of the parts have been replaced but the shop left some others. I think they'll need to be replaced within 5 years.

Photo is from behind the rear driver's side wheel looking toward the sliding door. Trying to show a better angle for the rust on the exhaust parts.
Photo is taken from right below the "hookups" on the driver's side.

From the front looking toward the back. Front wheels pictured close. Spare time included. Hmm.... I have never actually gotten the spare tire out.

HUGE ENGINE!!!! It is a monstrous 2.1L. A list of all of the upgrades can be found on the "Text" Page
1 out of the 4 gutters has rust on the very end. I was disappointed by this given we started the trip with zero rust on the body. Most of the other body rust is found on the "Jack Ports" (where you put the jack to lift up the van).
"Jack Port". Driver's side rear. Some rust coming in right near the back.
"Jack Port". Driver's side front. Some rust coming in where most of the stones probably hit.
"Jack Port". Passender's side front. Some rust coming in right where the jack is inserted.
This is a bit of rust coming in right above the new propane tank.
A bit of rust right below the sliding door. I'm not sure why I didn't clean the van before taking all of these photos.....arg.
This is a strange thing. The paint on the van seems to be excellent except for right on front. I asked a body shop guy and he mentioned the original owners may have used a "protectent" or something on the front and the paint didn't agree with the new stuff.
The front is so strange because the rest of the van looks like this.... who knows? If you have any idea about this kind of stuff, let me know!
