    Wow, very nice. I have been looking for 3 yrs. for one that is right price. I belong to several van dwelling groups on FB that are grabbing these up. Wonder if I could post it there?

      This is my fathers van and we would love it if you posted it on the van dwellers sites!
      Thanks

    Guess I am not able to find how to post it on the other sites. They are all on FB. If you are able, post them on FB-Camper Vans for sale. Or click on Van dwelling.
