FOR SALE Van VW T3 Kombi 1988 diesel 1.6L in Chile May-June

Hi,
I'm selling regretfully my VW van because I need to come back to Europe mid-June 2015. I've been living in it more than 1,5 years and I've equiped it over the time to make a comfy place to live, and a mechanically sound engine.
**/ the price indicated was the entry price a month ago, but as my flight back is coming soon, it's urgent for me to sell the van, so it's very talkable... /**

FOR SALE 1990 brasilian VW combi camper

After half an year of love and adventure in our 1990 vw combi we sadly have to sell it and return to our boring/usual life in Germany. We bought it in Santiago de Chile empty, and did all the work on it while volunteering on a farm. It served us faithfully on our trip on the carretera austral and route 40, all the way to brasil, paraguay, san pedro de atacama and back to santiago, about 14000 km.
Here's what the combi has to offer:

New process to get RUT in Chile?

Hi all

A fellow member recently told me that as of this year the process to aquire a RUT has become more complicated and expensive than it was. 

"now you have to find a local that is willing to bail for you- both of you need to do that at a notary and hand in notarized passport copies too."

Has anyone here been through the RUT application process in recent months? Can you shed any light on this process and if it has become more complicated and expensive it has become in reality?

Chile road trip from Santiago to Arica in May-June 2015 - anyone want to join us?

Hi all

We are an Australian couple, mid-20s, friendly and easy going travellers. We arrive in Santiago on May 4 and will be in South America for 3 months.

Our plan is to buy a ready-to-go camper 4x4 vehicle in Santiago from a fellow traveller and then road trip up to Arica (maybe venture into Peru for a few weeks). We are looking to get surf, hiking and general good adventures, "buena onda" (good vibes) so to speak..

We plan to stop by La Serena, Antofagasta, San Pedro de Atacama, Iquique and Arica. Plus all the good camp spots and beaches inbetween!
