Earl is ready to go on a road trip!

We are looking for a good home for Earl, our 1986 VW Vanagon Westfalia Weekender. Earl has a brand new front heater! Earl has updated fuel hoses, clamps, and fuel injector seals. He has a new coolant pipe set as well as coolant overflow reservoir. His headlights got adjusted to work beautifully at night. Earl has truck mirrors installed (so much easier to see cars hiding in blind spots), a small gas fed two burner stove, recovered seats, and new canvas for the pop top. His tires are only one year old. We took good care of him and had many checkups. We have all the paperwork in the glove compartment.

For some reason the email reply isn't working, so use my phone to contact me. Please don't use my number to try and scam me or send me weird advertisements. Thanks.
