VAN FOR SALE - Costa/Panama in late Oct/early Nov


For sale a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan (3.3L V6, 300k km's) in Panama or Costa Rica between the end of October and start of November.   The car has bought myself and a friend (and at times 2 others) from Vancouver down to Central America over the last 8 months without a glitch and still runs perfectly.  It has British Columbia plates, and ideally we’d be looking for another traveller who wants to head back north to Canada or the US. 

Van has been fully converted to suit the needs of the traveller.  I installed a false floor that comfortably sleeps two people.  Underneath there is room for 6+ surfboards (up to 6’8 in length) and all your other gear keeping it out of sight and off the roof.  For sale with the van is all cookware (wok/fry pan, saucepan, cutlery, plates, bowls, knifes cutting board etc.), cooking stove, cooler, two camp chairs, jerry can, assorted tools (screwdrivers, pliers, socket set, tyre pump etc.), 4m x 6m tarpaulin and all storage boxes for all your clothes and food.  All rear windows are heavily tinted and we installed curtains to keep out prying eyes and the light when you’re sleeping. 2x lockable compartments for valuables.  It’s been perfect as our home on wheels – and is inconspicuous enough to park anywhere without drawing much attention!

Before starting the trip I had the front rotors and pads replaced, radiator flush and new water pump installed.  I also put on 4 new tyres all terrain tyres that still have plenty of tread and a full size, new spare.  No fluid leaks, squeaks or rattles.  The van has excellent fuel economy, getting between 22-28 MPG (or 10-12L per 100km), which makes it cheap to run on long trips.   

Asking price is $2500 ONO.

Available to view?


Definitely interested in viewing the car, we're currently living in Panama City but looking for a car to use to travel the country and further afield through Central America. When exactly do you think you might be in Panama City?
