SOLD! Nissan Pathfinder 2004, 3.5 SE, V6, Gasoline, 4x4 Camper. Available late November 2017 in Santiago, Chile

Looking for a reliable, well maintained 4x4 camper to take you on an adventure through South America? Look no further! Paddy has been with us since December 2016 and without her we wouldn't have been able to get in, or out of some of the incredible places we've visited over the past year. Avoid the nightmare of a roof tent in the infamous Patagonian winds, and the mechanical hassles that come with older cars or vans. Paddy is ready and able to take you where you want to go, hassle-free! She comes with everything you'll need, so you can start exploring straight away. We're sad to see her go, but we know we'll find the perfect new companions for her to continue with on her travels.

Paddy is available for purchase late November 2017 in Santiago, Chile.

Price: USD$10,000.00

Model: 2004 Nissan Pathfinder (SE 3.5)
Engine: V6 3.5L
Colour: Green
Transmission: Automatic with Manual 4WD (2H, 4H & 4L)
Left hand drive
Fuel: Gasoline. 80L fuel tank (60L+ 20L reserve). Fuel consumption on average 11L/100km, depending on terrain..
Tyres: 4 x Goodyear Wranglers plus spare
Features: Car alarm & anti theft system (electric), central locking, cruise control, electric windows, airbags, climate control with air conditioning and heating, radio/stereo.
2.10m high (fits into most off street parking facilities)
Kilometres: 167000km (Estimated 180000km at time of sale)

Paddy is a comfortable ride both on and off road, dealing easily with the altitude, uneven highways, sneaky potholes and random speed bumps you'll find throughout South America. 4WD and clearance made it possible for us to go everywhere we wanted to go, including the Carretera Austral, sandy beaches, muddy national parks, knee high rivers, steep rocky inclines, and an icy and snowy border crossing without needing chains. She is also a great colour, perfect for stealth camping! Car parts are common and we didn't have any problems sourcing them in South America. Paddy has been well maintained and driven with care. See car history below.

We designed and built the interior, optimising the space to provide a comfortable sleep and plenty of storage. The platform extends in the front to create a bed L1900mm x W1400mm with a 60mm high density foam mattress. The front section of the platform and mattress flat pack into the rear of the vehicle so the rear seats can be used if you have extra passengers. All bedding (linen, blanket, 2 pillows, mattress protector) is included. There are blackout curtains between the front seats and rear, and all rear windows are tinted for privacy. There are 5 insulated window visors for rear windows to protect from heat and cold, and provide extra privacy at night.

Well equipped kitchen with foldout benchtop and shelf for easy access and food preparation. There is also a table that can be used in the front of the car for those wet weather days

Full disclosure:

Paddy is a used car and is not without the usual rough edges that you'll find on vehicles in South America. We bought her like this, with a few scratches and minor dings, however this has not affected her performance - Mechanically she is brilliant!
Existing cosmetic damage:
Dent in rear door and front hood
Mirror casing broken on drivers side (electrics work fine)
Missing plastic grill on front bumper
Minor scratches on body

All paperwork is up to date:
Revision Técnica (July 2018)
Permiso de Circulación (March 2018)
Seguro Obligatorio (March 2018) 

The only things you have to do are:
• Get your Chilean RUT number BEFORE the sale
• Buy international vehicle insurance

Then you're all set to begin your own amazing adventure with Paddy!

Hi Rom,

Hi Rom,

It doesn't look like our previous reply was posted, sorry. 

Yes at this stage Paddy is still available, however we are meeting buyers tomorrow so she will only be available if that doesn't go through.

We do have other interested buyers that would also like to view Paddy.. are you still interested, and would you like to make a time to view her as well?
