WANTED : van in July 2018

Hello !

We are Francesca and Paul, from Germany. We would like to buy a van and drive to central and south america to enjoy nature, surf and culture. The price range would be US 5000 - 12000. We would like quite a big van since we will live in it for one year. It doens't have to be 4x4, but not too low in order to pass throw all kind of roads.

We will be arriving at the beginning of July. We are very flexible, we don't have a flight ticket yet.


Hope to hear from you soon,


Francesca & Paul

we are the proud owner of a very nice van, a bit bigger than the other, which allows a fixed (and very confortable) bed ! It’s yellow and very nice. We have been from Ushuaia to Colombia and live with it for 9 months. It s very pratical, you can eat and cook inside in case of bad weather.

The inside is spacious enough to arrange surfboars storing without taking to much space. Or you can also fit them on the roof. 

But we explain everything here :) : http://drivetheamericas.com/forums/sale-van-fully-equipped-ready-go-asia...

we are ready to discuss the price or the work to be done for the surfboards.

We are planning to leave chile on the 24th of june, so if you can make it on the 20th it would be awsome. But if not, our chilean mecanich friend will be waiting for you with all the paperwork and some mechanic classes ;) !! 

And we can meet via skype or in a airport ! 

Do not hesitate if you have questions about road triping South America, the van, the beaches :), or else. 

Looking forward to hear from you, 

Lucie & Pierre.

We have the van for you in Mexico


We are looking to sell our van in Mexico - (Cancun), but can be flexible.

The car is a Nissan Ichi Van - 1992.

Very economical on gas. We can usually drive around 6 hours on the highway with one tank. Its a fantastic van we have taken out the back seats and refitted it with a comfy bed, and storage, lots of headspace when in the van. We have kitchen appliances, car tools (jumperleads, tire jack and wrench), blankets, sheets and pillows.

The van has only done 103,000km, we bought it with 93,000km and have not had any problems with it at all. Recently we have changed the oil over and had a checkup on our healthy van.  Next one due at 108,000km.

The van is four speed manual, and has got us pretty much everywhere we need to go, not including extremely steep dirt roads.

Windows are all lockable and functional, and the car has an inbult and working alarm system.

We are looking at selling the car for around $7000US. Please contact us if your are interested and we can send you photos and talk about the price more.


Kind Regards
Eliza and Steven.

Perfect travel van

Dear Fransesca and Paul,

In June, we will be selling our Toyota 4Runner in Santiago. It is big enough to fit a lot of stuff in it and since you sleep in the rooftop tent, you don't need to convert/rearrange your car every evening!

Check out our ad and if you are interested and/or have any question, don't hesitate to contact us via WhatsApp!
