I am the original owner and have loved traveling in the Eurovan, following good weather across the USA while racing mountain bikes. It has not been driven or stored in salty/snowy areas. 231,000 miles, mostly highway as I do not commute for a "real" job, but travel from state to state for events. This has been an amazing van and the only reason I am selling it is that I am getting a bigger cargo van as a team race van.

New transmission was installed 05-02-08. It was checked over by the VW dealer in Albuquerque, NM last week, everything looks great. Originally VW claimed the transmission fluid was "good for life", that turned out not to be the case and people (including me) ended up having to get their transmissions rebuilt. Since then VW has changed the recommendation to ~40-50,000 miles, this seems to have solved the problem.

Reverse facing chairs have been stored since 2003 and I will get those shipped out when the van sells. Carpets and rear bench seat have been covered since the vehicle was new to preserve re-sale value.

Canvas on pop-top has holes at the rear due to my forgetting to tuck it in so subjecting a small portion to sun damage. I have a quote for new canvas installed, $1000. It wasn't worth it to me to get it fixed.
