Here’s a hot find that popped up on craigslist just a few hours ago in New York state. This 2 owner specimen is a 1990 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper with likely stock 2.1L engine, stock manual 4 speed transmission and appears to show in decent condition. The seller states they are firm on the $13k asking price and cash and quickness take priority here. Though the VIN is not provided, the seller does state the original owner purchased it in Germany, which is a bit tricky since it barely clears the 25 year rule. There’s no mention if the propane, stove, fridge or sink work, or how well, and the seller does mention there’s some seam rust building in on the kitchen side (but no pictures?). As far as maintenance, it is said to have a newer clutch and alternator, along with a custom hardwood floor upgrade. Check it out in Kerhonskson, New York. Craigslist Link
I think the main pieces to this are…. Is the mileage accurate, does the kitchen equipment work, how bad is/was the mold and how bad is the seam rust. If the mileage is accurate, and the seam rust is repairable without welding, the kitchen works and the mold is minimal,$13k is a steal. Are you going to see this Westy?

Hey there! I live just down the road in Stone Ridge, NY. I can pay cash. We have previously owned a 1990 Westy and LOVED it. I’m very serious. Can I take a look?
Saw your Westy on Craigslist. When I wanted to contact you I saw you had removed the listing. Has it been sold? I am a serious buyer. I am on Long Island but will travel to see it.
