WANTED - car/camper/van/4x4 in PERU / (Northern) Chile in May/June 2017

Hello fellow travelers :)

A friend of mine and me are looking for a vehicle to explore Chile/Bolivia/Argentina for a couple of months starting in May/June 2017. We travel from Peru southbound and will cross the Chilean border some time in May/June. We are Austrian citizens and have a tourist visa. If you have a vehicle that we could take on our adventure, please contact us. If you have any advice for us about buying a car in Chile/Peru, we'll be happy to hear from you as well.

Thanks in advance,

Rental and new Customs Restrictions


Hi Trixi,

my core mini-business is rental, so should you consider that alternative feel free to contact me directly under geylertsesc at gmail dot com (german spoken); I could also consider selling my smaller camper - on top of a Mitsubishi L200 4WD - for renewal in the next months.

A comment to buying or renting, where the RUT is the easiest part (not needed for rental): new customs regulations are obliging to return a chilean licenced vehicle to the country after a maximum of 6 months, what you have to sign at/with a notary; extension is only possible at the nearest (chilean) customs. Details - unfortunately only in spanish - under:

Selling our 4x4 Toyota in May!

Hi Trixi! 

We´re looking to sell our Toyota 4Runner in May in Bolivia or nearby (we´re flexible on the location!) We´ve loved travelling in this car, we both slept comfortably in it throughout our trip and border crossings were very easy because it has US plates (it doesn´t matter if you are US citizens are not, the crossings will be easy either way with this car). 

Check out our post and let us know if you are interested! http://drivetheamericas.com/forums/sale-starting-now-flexible-timing-toyota-4runner-camper-overlanding-perubolivianorthern-chile

Camper Van in Chile For Sale

$6,950 - 2013, Excellent, Second Owner, Chevrolet N300 van converted into a camper. I'm a mechanic and know vehicles. Anyone looking knows Chileans do not take care of their vans, most of those you find are a mess, driven to death, trashed then sold for high prices. I spent two months looking for this van, bought it from a reputable dealer and paid extra because it was well worth it. I have been in Chile for more than 10 months and eighty percent of the almost 50,000 kilometers on the meter are highway, that is about 31,000 miles. Those who know vehicles will tell you open road driving is the best for any vehicle. I normally get 13+ KM/liter in town and as much as 15 on the highway. It holds 54 liters of gas when filled to the top and will normally go more than 700 kilometers on one tank! It has an excellent 5 speed transmission and very easy to drive. I installed an extra large battery for camping and sometimes watch two or three movies a day. It has good tires, an excellent radio/CD player, fantastic heater, a cooler for food, a propane stove and tank for cooking, custom seat covers and custom bars above the seats and at the top of the rear window for hanging clothes or towels to prevent anyone seeing in side while sleeping. I installed foam on the inside walls for temperature and sound control, a bed with a very nice foam mattress, under which is storage. I recently renewed the license. If you are ready to go camping it is ready to take two people wherever you want to go. I am selling it only because I need a larger van capable of pulling a boat that I am building.
