Overview: I am thesecond owner of the van and purchased it in March of 2003. It has been in no accidents, meticulouslymaintained and is ready for a cross country road trip at the drop of a hat. Over the course of my ownership the van has seentime as a daily driver but over the last three years has been predominantly usedfor road trips and the occasional errand once a week to get it out of thegarage. Significant effort has been madeto modernize the van, making it safer, more capable (specifically for camping andoverland travel) and when practical giving it the comforts of a modern vehicle.
