  7. I would welcome any inspection as you really have to see this van in the flesh to appreciate the quality. Straight panels, solid underneath, well maintained and runs nicely…

  8. Looks lovely. I just sold mine to a German guy on eBay and cost me £10 so would advise advertising yours there. Price and pics look great but maybe also add some pics of it in a camping set up and hills / inspiring scenary to 'sell' the dream a bit more.

  13. I put mine as £18,000 with offers and it wasn't as nice as yours honestly. If you can find somewhere dry and secure to store it over the weekend then it will go for more in the spring I'm sure but I wanted the cash ASAP to pay off some of my credit card balances :confused:

    I would stick the eBay link up here too. GLWTS :thumbsup:
     
  14. Thanks!

  17. Is your camper still for sale?
     
  18. If you put @DrBox it will notify him if he’s about :thumbsup: gd luck .
     
  19. Sorry for the delay in replying; I’ve just seen the notification.

    I was planning on waiting until Spring to sell but I’m happy to sell sooner if anyone is interested.
     
  20. Hi, did you sell the westy? I am looking for a rustfree westy.
    Regards, Gregor
