This old school retro van is the ticket to your next adventure. Betsie has been meticulously maintained, has regular maintenance and runs great. With a powerful V8 engine take her anywhere. The van is simple to use, drive and park. She has 5 seat belts, air con, bluetooth, power steering, windows and mirrors.
She can accommodate a solo traveler, a couple, or a family with two small kids.
She has battery power, a two burner stove, a fridge/freezer, sink & furnace for those chilly nights.
The van has a really nice vibe. I find sleeping downstairs to be very relaxing. Sleeping upstairs feels like you're camping.

I'm Richard. I'm from Ireland. I relocated to the PNW for a tech job after college. I love the great outdoors & travelling. That was the main reason for purchasing the van - exploring the PNW with a little comfort! I hope you enjoy the van as much as I do.

First, let me state that this was one of my best travel experiences and at 66, I have traveled the world. Richard is a superb host. One of his strengths is communication. He texted multiple time prior to pick-up, he spent an hour with us showing us everything about the van inside and out and he also provides a detailed manual about the van for everything from unlocking the gas cap to turning on the propane to numbers to get help.
Richards van organization is exception and we were well stocked including smores ingredients and beverages in the refridge. Richard also did an amazing job refurbishing the van and it is in great shape. He includes sheets, duvet and pillows for the sleeping berths. We (my daughter and I) found the van to be comfortable and easy to drive. We also slept comfortably.
Our trip was both urban (Portland and Vancouver) and rustic (Mt St Helens, Mt Hood and Mt Rainier). The van handled all roads including higher elevations. It was a perfect size for all of the campsites we reserved. I must also state that our vacation coincided with a heat wave with temperatures exceeded 100 degrees. We opted not to use the portable air conditioner that Richard offers and we were able to stay comfortable with the fans that come with the van. I hate being hot so when I say that we were comfortable, it means something. I'm sure it helped that we were camping in the mountains but I still wouldn't have chosen to take the portable a/c unit.
I can't rate the van, the experience or RIchard high enough. He truly lived up to his desire to help us have a wonderful experience. I feel like I made a new friend and I will contact him first should we take another camping trip!
