The time has come to sell my well loved van and get a big estate car instead as I’ve finished with my big carpentry jobs and Mrs BigJohn wants a bit more comfort when we take the bikes, windsurfers and camping gear around the British Isles.
What’s good about it: It’s got a clean(ish) load space, low mileage for year (Oct 2005, 117,000 miles) MOT till November. Other accessories are roof rails, DAB radio & powered antenna, reversing camera/dashcam and towbar (no electrics).
What’s not so good: a few scrapes, but more importantly it’s going to need a bit of money spent on it soon. Things like ball joints, track rod ends, maybe a shock absorber, a couple of tyres and while the cambelt wasn’t done many miles ago it it’s probably due. Interim service due soon.
I get average 33mpg, short trips. I bought it in August 2016 from a Singletrack forumite for £3000. As far as I know it’s never been used as a work van.
It’ll be available about 5th May. that’s when I should be picking up my car. I’ve no idea of its value so let bidding commence. And I’m sure we can sort something with how to get it to you.
