It is a sad day, but it is time for my 1991 Automatic Westy to find a new home. She has been lovingly cared for and on many many fine adventures, but the time has come. I am only selling because I have reached a "seasoned" point in life and purchased a slightly larger camper trailer with indoor plumbing. She has power mirrors that are not working, but I never needed them to "move" once they were set. The AC was recharged, but is never used and really doesn't blow very cold air anyway.
Over the 12 years I have owned her, I have made many improvements and completed many repairs on her. Almost every system on her has been replaced, improved or rebuilt, including the engine, fuel system, suspension system, axles, camping system and brakes. She has all LED lights inside, a 50 AH house battery (this is about 4 years old and probably time to replace), corrected wiring to increase headlight brightness, upgraded GW faucet, GW mats all around and 5 new tires. I also have a bus depot awning and gel mattress pad that is included. I removed the rear heater since I didn't use it and to provide more storage space. She may have the only original refrigerator that will make ice and will easily start on propane. All camping equipment works, the canvas has no holes or tears, the carpet, upholstery and paint are in great shape for a 30 year old girl. She has NO RUST and normal wear and tear that would be expected for a 30 year old vehicle. I am the third owner and have all maintenance records from the original owner and records since the van was purchased. At one point I had the original window sticker, but can't seem to find that. If I do find it, it will be included. Still have the original two ice trays for the refrigerator.
