***SOLD*** Mercedes Camper Van - End October in Santiago de Chile

Hey travel folks!

We are Ivonne, Johannes and 2 year old Toni. Our amazing trip has brought us through Ecuador, Peru, Chile and Argentina. Soon we will return to Germany for the birth of our second child.

MATILDA is our super reliable and comfy travel companion. She has spent her first 17 years on smooth German roads as a regular well-maintained transporter. In 2018 she was converted into a camper van and shipped to South America. She combines the best from both worlds:
1. robust and compact CAR, consumes little and is easy and comfortable to drive
2. little wooden HOME with huge bed, kitchen, sink, solar power, and lots of storage
Matilda is fully-equipped and ready to hit the road! You could basically move in with what you are wearing… ;-)

We are selling end of October around Santiago de Chile or Mendoza Argentina. The car has German plates. The car papers will include a “Poder Legal” issued on your name (We are experienced South American travellers and have completed this process twice already. We speak fluent Spanish).

The price is 11500 USD or 10300 EURO.

And here are the most important facts about Matilda:

2. Engine: 2.2 Liter Diesel with 82hp (original engine); lots of torque to get you anywhere; consumption averages at 8.8 liters per 100 km (32 MPG) 1000km on a single tank is possible

6. Tires: Maxxis VANPRO AS M+S 225/70R15 28k km
7. There is some small rust and dents on the outer body. It's only a cosmetical thing but sure you can see the age (helps against robbery)

9. Equipment includes well-equipped toolbox, air compressor 12V for tires, 5t hydraulic jack, child seat for up to 18 kg (if you don’t need it we would donate it)
