We're looking for a vehicle registered on US or UK plates any time from NOW! We're in Santiago, heading up to San Pedro de Atacama at the weekend. We'll be in Arequipa, peru for Christmas and New Year, then Peru, Bolivia, Colombia in Jan/Feb.
Obviously we're prepared to travel a little for a good vehicle. Budget is USD 7.5k to 15k
Dream vehicle would be a Land Rover custom Camper ;) A Land Cruiser or 4Runner also good. No buses, thanks!
So I am planning a road trip to South America beginning of March 2015 with my girlfriend. At the moment we are planning flying to Santiago, Chile and from there hope to find a wonderful van/car to make our home for the next 4 months as we adventure around.

It is a 1991 Mitsubishi Montero with gasoline engine, manual transmission 5 speed. The vehicle is up to date!
It is prepared as a camper van for 2 people. This car is for you if you want to live comfortably on the road, and still have a lot of the advantages of driving in a 4WD car. Because it's comfortable, you will save on hotels which in many amazing places do not exist.
We drive the car since 5 years! The car has been a fantastic asset for highway and off-road driving and is very reliable. We are selling it because we are looking for a baby so it will be small for us.
We will be finishing our trip in Chile beginning of November and will have to sell our super Combi. The previous owners changed all the motors components and did 4000 km with, on which you can add 5000km for us. The car is really quiet with the new engine and the built-up roof allow you to be stand up in the "kitchen" wich is really something comfortable when you are travelling for a while.
We are a german couple, who bought a Chilean car and travelled around South America. Our money has come to an end so we have to leave and sell our “Pathi” to nice travellers to show him even more of this beautiful continent.
From Santiago we travelled to Patagonia until Ushuaia. Up north till Buenos Aires and to the Northwest of Argentina. Back to Chile and from there we went to Peru and Ecuador. We always sleep in the car which saves a lot of money. We even have our own shower (solar shower).
We are in Chile now to sell the car. Going down from Arica to Santiago.
