I bought a 4x4 van for $1800 and fixed it up for jkam style living. I sold it last year to buy the RV I live in now.

That is sweet. I prefer the "window vans", too.

I've only had three vans, a 71 VW, a 67 Ford with all the "Van" stuff, and a 79 Chevy Custom.

I'll post pics tonight if I remember!

That's what I had, mine was blue, I think it was a '69......

It was not cool.

I wanted a '76 Tradesman.

When, I was 14, I would spent hours looking through the Sears catalog at all the cool shit I was going to put on my dream van.

My neighbor has one of those. It's pretty beat up, but I'm still jealous.

Van's rule...

I love mine.. Had pickups for years, now I have seen the light.

Here's some shots of mine from 10 days camping in Death Valley, just got back Monday night.

I really wanted a VW Syncro Westy but they are really expensive if you can find one.

I was hoping that VW would go ahead with the next microbus.
