WANTED vehicle in Colombia or Peru July 2015

Hi there!

Our names are Kelsey and Joseph. We are flying from California to Colombia in early July, and from there we want to slowly make our way down to Uruguay (we have about 3-4 months). To do this, we are looking to purchase a vehicle, preferably a sleep-in so we can save money on hostels. As we are young and recent university graduates, our budget is tight and we are looking for a vehicle ~3,000 USD. We will appreciate any propositions.

Wishing you all the best,

Kelsey and Joseph

We are a couple, looking for a vehicle, that is good for off-roading and to sleep in. Definitely open to taking a car and transforming the inside if we find a good one. Good gas mileage would be great. We are willing to travel to Ecuador if we get a good deal. Anybody?

Thank you!
