While in Tularosa, I pass by a house with a high top camper van in the back. Been wondering if it runs. Looks in good shape.
So the Sunday before we left for Conchas Lake I was passing the house when the owner was out. I stopped and introduced myself and asked if he was interested in selling the van. He was. The van was in a tight place, but we were able to get inside. It looked excellent inside. No leaks. Carpet was in good shape. I can stand up in it.
He was honest about the issues. No refrigerator. A electrical issue which ran the battery down until he put in a cut-off switch under the hood. A huge engine. 454 on a 3500 chassis which means you can watch the fuel gauge drop (NCLady made the pantomime of pouring out of a glass when she heard the engine size). 1995 so no OBD port. And the same price he paid for it years ago.
There’s a small Class C parked on the side of a property nearby. Maybe I should introduce myself there next.
