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:

We're looking for a quality, reliable, Class C type RV (or similar - Class A's to be considered as well) for our trip which will be a drive from Canada (Vancouver) to Panama. Budget 10-15k USD, preferably cheaper/lower. Willing to consider vehicles based anywhere on the West Coast USA, to Mexico (or even further). We think that we need something a little bit bigger than a van (standing room, toilet/shower), but are hoping for something not too long (under 26 ft.) not too gas guzzly, and hopefully turnkey and ready to go off grid (prefer solar installation and big water tanks, but we could explore figuring out how to do these mods ourselves).

Reliability is a huge desire, as such, we've been looking at Toyotas (Sunraders, Dolphins, etc.) but are also concerned about ground clearance/lack of 4x4, but considering we are sticking to low altitude destinations (so far!) we are hoping we can get away with something that can go a little bit offroad just for camping.

If anyone has any leads, ideas, or is getting ready to part with their baby, please let us know. popmontreal at gmail dot com or reply here!
