Looks like yer ready to Roll! Just might need a Hobotraveler cartoon on a window or maybe as a magnet sign for the door! Pays to advertise - Hopefully it Pays. Still it´s Stylin´!
You can a higher resale when it comes time to sell again if sold in an "off-road" State, like Montana, Wyoming or Idaho. 4WD´s get a premium price thereabouts, so you might beat your purchase price of $1,700 (which was good). Also, if you´ve insured it but forget and leave the keys in it ... same-same. Triple AAA sells insurance, does trip routing with free Trip-Tik´s and good Maps, has Road Assistance and is where you can get an Internationl Driver´s License - good to have!
I will go to the Sign Shoppe here in Fort Wayne, I think they can make full vinyl cover ads for the windows on both side cheap enough. This will help on light also. I will say something like USA Road Trip, by Andy Graham Perpetual world traveler, 14 years etc.
I did not see one mini-van cargo van for sale. I can use advertising on the side as a business card, a credibility thing to get free hotel room. My plates and title will soon be mailed to my Indiana parent home.
A magnet sign comes off in a jif when it´s time to saw logs - whiteVan is best to my thinking also but like anything you should get the one you want and when the price's right like Andy´s doing. He´s just as likely to park in a girlfriend´s driveway as anywhere else. Ha, this is Andy, jjj. A 4WD cost another grand on a lot in my experience and he could sell it tomorrow and make money.
