Detail RV by owner
We are the 3rd owners of Edna (originally Ed, the Edventure van) and we bought it from the grandson of the original owner during the pandemic in SLC, UT.
We bought this during the pandemic and worked from it remotely and traveled from swimming hole to swimming hole enjoying everything West of the Missouri River. Lately we are both back to work here full-time and Edna only gets the occasional weekend trek now so we're going to downsize to something that fits in our parking garage.
If you don't know anything about this model there are several online communities dedicated specifically to the Roadtrek that can help shed some light onto why it's loved by many. The highlights are that it's fully-contained and has standing room inside while maintaining an aerodynamic hightop, full bathroom with a shower, apartment-sized a/c (mounted inside above the rear bed to avoid sticking out on the roof), kitchen w/ gas burners, sink, prep space, sleeping arrangements for 4 (the front seats swivel and convert into 2 beds with the middle seats), great MPG, standard width and low overall length for city parking, etc etc etc. I am 6’ and can stand upright.
She has 119k miles and has some areas that could use improvement:
-I have no idea how to make the refrigerator turn on. It can run off of propane, alternator power, or shore power, but I never fiddled with it and neither did the previous owner. I don't know if that means it works on propane, but not shore or the other way around. We used it as a pantry and had a Yeti to make hauling things in and out easier. -Paint is not great. There are a few spots with surface rust popping up around the windows, but no dents or large areas of cancer -Decals are ancient and starting to crisp off -Grey/black water hose needs to be replaced. I removed the old one, but at the time of replacement I had the wrong size tube and by the time the right tube came in I lost my space to work on the van. All parts are included. It was low priority and didn't really affect us as we showered outside and used toilet liners (Yeah! #vanlife) -Front carpet is just old and not great. There's a vinyl carpet kit included, but like the hose I couldn't work on it at our storage lot.
Recent work: -Smogged (Sanders) -Plugs, cap and wires, etc tune-up (completed by Sanders Automotive in Belmont, CA) -Both front brake calipers, pads, rotors replaced (completed by AC/DC Automotive in Box Elder, SD) -Muffler (Completed by Master AutoTech in Sandy, UT) -Clean carfax with a stack of receipts.
Extras coming with the van: -Ball hitch and hitch basket with locking pin -2000w gas generator -Mr. Heater Buddy (don't really need it, but I got it as an emergency back-up for blizzard camping) -Misc vanlife gear (folding chairs, leveling blocks, ultra long extension cords, gas grill, shower extension, etc) -Mattress for rear sleeping area (We never used the couch cushions. Always had it in perma-bed mode) -Custom cut vinyl carpet kit for the front cabin ready to install -Premium speakers for the front doors
I would rate her overall a 7/10 with demarks for appearance, but I wouldn't hesitate to jump in and drive up to Alaska with her right now. She's a 26 year old 1 ton van that gets ~20 mpg @ 65mph and has made lifelong memories for 3 lucky families.
Clean California title ready to go.
