For sale: Ford Transit Connect T230L Van 1,8TDCI 81kW diesel mini camper van.

My Ford Transit Connect is for sale. I am now in Cusco, Peru [april 20th]
My small Ford Transit Connect T230L Van 1,8TDCI 81kW diesel minivan is for sale.
I drive with Bonaire, Netherlands Antilles plates. So no road taxes, no worries at country borders, and in Argentina you can buy cheap insurance with Liberty Seguros for Mercosul. Insured for Brazil, Paraguay, Chile, Bolivia and Peru. But I have driven without any problem. The police just checks it as a foreign driver with foreign car. It was never easier to drive around any continent. It is the smaller version of the Ford Transit and from 2008. At this moment it has about 82.000 km on its odometer and for a diesel that is nothing. It could easily run to 300.000 plus km.
Doesn't use oil, and doesn't runs hot.
I have received numorous compliments from other overlanders on the nifty design and usefullness.

You might want to consider this because;

it's cheaper at peaje - normal car charges
cheaper in insurance and fuel costs - it runs economical at 1 liter per 12 km!
back windows are tinted and with curtains you are invisible because it doesn't look like a camper, just a small minivan, park it anywhere and sleep in it without anybody bothering you, not even police that might like to hassle campers.
it has a Thule roof rack that is detachable, but if you need the extra space...
