In a few ways, no. Since I travel with three dogs, the lower bed setup and remaining floor space when set up just didn't work. It also needs a few things to be a real 4-season camper. Even though it's older and slower, I decided my 1993 Karmann Distance Wide (VW LT31 based) fits my lifestyle better, plus I am still moving forward on my original Sprinter T1N 4x4 camper build...slowly. I had to stop for awhile and build a bigger shop next to my home.That's too bad, Karl. Didn't fit your needs?
How many miles are on this?I am selling mine. It's got quite a few issues. I am the second owner. The first one loved this camper, and modified it with Koni shocks and stiffer leaf springs, then added a switch on the fuel pump for high altitude function.
I drove the camper with my family of 4 and dog for about 31K miles and added nothing. Ended up repairing the bathroom faucet leak only to have it reappear a couple of years later. Espar heater smokes up, but never blows hot air--no error codes, though and may need a good cleaning. Windshield cracked, driver side awning window cracked, upstairs smaller awning windows have small hairline fractures in them--and growing. Skylight works and functions as normal, bathroom skylight/vent is cracked around its edges, but keeps a proper seal when closed away from rain. Remote on the key stopped working when starter battery went dead, and now the door lock switch blinks on and off and has trouble keeping all door locks closed at the same time (I have to manually lock them). Clearcoat on the roof is all peeled off. This needs to be properly cleaned, sanded, and then reprayed with something industrial so that it will last--no cracks. Glowplug #5 is out, but the car starts and runs normally. The light goes out after driving for a hundred miles or so. I get over 18 mpg in the winter, and 21 mpg in the summer.
I was going to spend a good month within a high ceiling garage with scaffolding to remedy the aforementioned issues, but my family shows no more interest in traveling this way.
Since *most* families desire to travel (and bugout) with something small and light, but fully functional as a second home, I thought it would be a good time to begrudgingly list it for sale. Lots of work needed, but after the windshield, and awning window replacement, the camper can be repaired at your pace and needs.
The vehicle is listed in the Orange County (California) Craigslist.
Thanks for finding that! Looks like it has some additional useful info...
