WANTED: Class C type RV (W. Coast Canada/USA, Mexico, C. America) ~February

Hi everybody! Wishing you a 2018 full of abundance, adventures, good health, and little engine trouble.

We're a Canadian-Chilean couple who recently quit their jobs in Asia and getting ready for a new mode of living. We've been cruising the sale ads here for a few months and haven't found our dream vehicle. We are now nearing our starting date (~February, flexible) and thought we'd put a wanted ad:

Drivers Licence for Toyota Coaster in COSTA RICA

Hi everyone,

We are planning to buy a standard Toyota Coaster in Costa Rica for our trip in Central America.

The plan is to get all the seats (30 of them) out and build a basic motorhome out of it...

Enough to sleep my girlfriend and I and our 2 year old son Felix.

My question now is: Do we need a special drivers licence or can a Toyota Coaster be driven on a regular international drivers licence?

FOR SALE: 1995 Chevrolet Astro, California Plates *Costa Rica/Panama* May 2017

We are two Scottish sisters selling our camper van 'Shelby' who has been our home for the last 7 months.

We had some work done on the engine by a reliable mechanic before leaving California and haven't experienced any problems on the trip down south. 

She has 238,000 miles on the clock but has proven to be reliable and robust; we've taken good care of her, regularly changing fluids etc.

She has USA (California) license plates (registered until Dec 2017).

For Sale Off Road Mini Bus / Casa Rodante Central America

We are an American couple, we drove our Ford E450 Diesel minibus with offroad tires and California plates throughout Baja, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nica, Costa, and Panama for 1 full year in June. We have to get back home and are planning on selling this month (May). It is the most perfect, beautiful home you will ever see with a full kitchen, big bed, solar panels, wood floors and plenty of storage. Plus the engine is working great, well maintained and super strong! We've never had problems aside from a tire blow out on a gnarly road in Baja, MX.

For Sale / Dodge Grand Caravan (3.3l V6)

Hi there!

We want to sell our Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3l V6 Campervan after we drove down in a year from Halifax CA to Guatemala.

The car has Plates from Halifax CA. They are valid till XX 2018.

The Car is a Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3 l 6 Cyl. Year 2007.
The car is fully equiped to camp for three people.

How challenging is it to sell a car in Panama after driving from Mexico?

Probably depends on the quality of the car, but do people actually have luck selling on these forums and FB groups?

Seriously considering traveling by car but am deathly afraid of not being able to sell the car off.

We are looking for a van that we can call home for the next year or so. It can be fitted for sleeping in or just the car. We have some time to fix it up ourselves.
