PRICE DROP $4,990 - FULLY FURNISHED 98' DODGE RAM CAMPER VAN 3500 (EXT) - SELLING NOW in COSTA RICA

After what will have been a wondrous adventure through the Americas, we will sadly have to say goodbye to our beautiful home and return home to Australia.

*Information Regarding the Vehicle*

In total, we have traveled a little over 15,000 miles in The BG and, as expected with a vehicle that is almost 20 years old, we had to replace a few parts along the way. To date, have replaced the following with new parts:

- The Starter Motor
- The Alternator
- The Stereo
- The Air Filter
- The Oil Filter
- The Fuel Filter
- The Fan Belt
- Four tires
- The Differential
- Brake pads

The van runs incredibly solid. She has a great and reliable engine and is showing no sign of troubles with the automatic transmission.

(All parts accept for the differential and the tyres were bought from Auto Zone - we have receipts and therefore warranties)

*Other Great Features*

Features that come as manufactured and additions that we installed include:

- Power Steering
- Power Windows
- Electric Mirrors
- Cruise Control
- Central Locking
- Air Conditioning
- Radio with CD input and AUX input
- Second Battery to power fridge, laptops, LED lights etc. - connected to the alternator so the battery charges when you drive.
- A kill switch between the second battery and the alternator so that you don't drain your car battery when the second battery runs dead.
- A 600 Watt inverter that beeps when your second battery is low so that you don't run it dead.
- A secured safe for valuables
- Pop open and lockable rear side windows and rear window.
- A desk with two wooden box stools that double as extra storage.
- A chest of draws with removable fabric draws for clothing storage.
- Lockable fuel cap ( comes with two keys)

All dials for battery charge, fuel guage and temperature guage on the dash work well. The van has been well looked after, well lubricated and gently driven for obvious reasons – she was our home for a year.

We were going to ship this van back to Australia so we could keep it, but unfortunately vehicles older than 1995 must be right hand drive as we drive on the left hand side of the road down under... so we have to sell it. It is a seriously great vehicle with high clearence so we were able to go down many of the tracks that were for 4WD only. If you choose to buy her - treat her well.

Cheers,
Charlie
