Ford Econovan (long wheel base)
Self Contained

Hi there!
We are selling our beloved "Big Red Van" aka “Sebastian”.

We've lived with 'Seb' for roughly 4 months and made huge improvements to him along the way, including an entire rebuild of the kitchen and the addition of a house battery - having electricity whenever you need it makes life so much easier!

The van is fully equipped with everything you´ll need, so you can start your NZ adventure straight away! In our opinion, having the self contained van was the best possible way to really see and experience NZ. The freedom camping all over the country makes accommodation practically free and you can stumble into some truly beautiful places.

Full service history available including:
- Regular service done in July 2018 with a clean bill of health
- 4 new tyres in Jan 2018, plus a spare (stored under the car)
- new car battery and spark plugs in Nov 2017
- new front windscreen Oct 2017

We installed a new dual battery setup in March 2018:
- a brand new deep cycle battery, 12V, 50Ah, fully sealed (enough electricity to comfortably power a cooler box, as well as all electronic devices you may have)
- DVSR built into system (which means it automatically charges the house battery when the car is running and isolates it with the car off so it will never run down your car battery, unlike manual switches that can leave you stranded if you forget one time)
- multiple USB charge ports already connected
- plus an inverter with a powerboard for powerpoint charging
- theoretically you can also use the house battery to jump start the car battery if ever needed, though we've never had to try

- 3 front seats
- heating and fan
- manual windows which doubles as a workout station for those long road trips of sitting on your ass
- with radio and CD player (USB and AUX)

- comfortable queensize mattress (a real one - not just a thin foam one) with mattress protector
- a king size duvet, 4 pillows, flannel sheets (because they're soo warm) plus a super super soft big blanket and cute decorative fluffy blanket and cushion
- carpetted floor for cosy toesies
- dual curtain setup for privacy with natural light or total blackout
- lots of space under the bed with easy access boxes for clothes storage at front
Things stored under the bed include:
- fold out table with adjustable leg heights
- 2 camping chairs 
- a big gazebo 
- camping gear including: a sleeping bag and 3 person tent
- assorted tool box (which includes a drill)
- plus heaps more space for personal storage!

Recently built, fully equipped kitchen that actually has access from both sides - so you can still pretty comfortably cook from the inside in bad weather (which you will be really thankful for on rainy days!!)
- useful lifting benchtop design that keeps things looking neat, and doubles as extra bench space/ eating tray
- two fresh water tanks
- large sink with connected grey water tank
- 15L cool box
- dual gas cooking burner with connected LPG gas bottle
- all the usual bit and bobs for two people's eating needs: cutlery, plates, bowls, cups, ect
- cooking gear: pots, pans, chopping boards, knives, utensils, ect

Happy to accommodate viewings anytime, so feel free to get in touch if you're interested or want more info!!
We are open to negotiation so don't be scared to make an offer!
