Vehicle checked over in general
The refrigerator, which was another common problem, has been removed and turned into valuable storage space. (The original refrigerator will go with vehicle.) The space could easily hold a port-a-potty, or a Truckfridge ac/dc fridge could be installed. Previous owner used a 2 cu. ft. refrigerator/freezer that runs on electricity (included also). This works if camping somewhere that you can plug in, or with the capability of having an auxiliary batter installed, this could probably be used with that.
The invaluable Bentley Manual is included also.
What still needs to be done: Window seals could be replaced and heater hose needs replacing. There are some small rust spots appearing around some of the windows.
My wife and I purchased this Westy with the intent of taking it on weekend camping trips around Las Vegas, but we sadly have to sell it as soon as possible because we are moving out of state. We love this van!
This Westy is so close to being the perfect cruiser camper. If you’re a serious buyer, you’ve done some research and know that these are collectible vehicles. Serious inquiries only.
