Hi Brent!
Good your asking, I see my last post is from 2016... I got the van through inspection just after my last post and I've driving it since then a lot! Only thing is the alternator got tired and I had to replace it. Runs much better now!

Just a few months after we got the van here in The Netherlands we got the chance to buy a house. But it needed lots of renovation, so all our time, energy and money got into the house the last year. The van was a great help to get all the supplies, because we did a lot of the renovation ourselves. It is amazing how much stuff you can fit in a Supervan!

We plan a much needed cleaning and maintenance for our van this weekend. And get it back from working van to campervan again. Summer is coming!

Like Vanny said, congrats on the new house! Good to hear from you and that you haven't had any major issues with the van over the last year. I bet you get plenty of interesting looks and questions from people when they see you driving it around.
Have fun camping this Summer! Oh, and Amy said she'd be happy to come over and give Robin a hand decorating if she needs any help! lol

It was great fun to see Robin and Tice in their own realm last year Smile It blew my mind after seeing the throng of Amsterdam to hear Tice tell me he drives the van daily! Ya like no problem. Smile lol! It reminded me of when I was younger in Indiana and didn't give a damn about shit or shinola
