Selling my gorgeous 1978 Dodge Tradesman Campervan with a shell top. "Rosemary". This groovy beloved van is in great shape (43 yrs young), driven semi regularly since I bought it about approx 6 years ago. It lived in California up until then. I am the 3rd owner. Very reliable and well maintained. The previous owner put over 5k into renovating it and replacing all the rubber components and rebuilding the transmission.... (read more) Odometer reads 37,283 miles (there are 5 number slots on Odometer). I've had modern seatbelts professionally installed for the two front seats.
It still runs like a dream. I've completely emptied the inside of furniture, so it is the perfect canvas for your VanLife dreams, and even better, I was able to get it registered as a passenger vehicle with passenger tags so you legally can park it on the street here in Portland!! ((This is near impossible these days!)). Going forward the passenger tags remain in place so you are good to park forever!
It does come with it's original table that snaps into a space in the floor as well as a fold down bed/frame that can be moved around for different floor plans. Comes with water tank and has all the fixins for water, gas (gas tank included), toilet (tank still present), and electric (not sure how well the electric works as I haven't used it!). It also comes with the original awning attached. If you have a sleeping bag you could take it out tomorrow and set up a nice camp with no changes to the inside at all, or you could go wild creating the perfect living space for your needs.
Needs new seals on windows and new vents on top-(Vents are about $50 each from camperworld)
Could use new flooring or slight repair of old flooring
Registered as passenger vehicle
Blank canvas to create your dream tiny home/mobile dwelling
Runs like a dream
Tires bought new when I got the van and have very few miles on them
Comes with a spare tire
California origins (less chance for rust issues than pnw vans)
Clean title (of course)
Good quality stain proof carpet in front seating area
Inside floor to ceiling tall enough to stand upright! (6')
Unique antique camper that always brings smiles to passerby
Comes with fold down bed structure that is great for space saving! (it is loose and can be moved around for different floor plans)
Modern Seatbelts professionally installed
Ultimately it's a great looking, sweet groovy van in great shape, I have appreciated it over these years, but I am moving and need the money more than I need the van ❤
