2005 Airstream Westphalia - Oregon

Title: 2005 Airstream Westphalia - Oregon
I just posted a new ad on Airstream Classifieds.

This is the ultimate camper van! 50 years of Westfalia innovation is expertly integrated into the efficient Mercedes Sprinter diesel van. Airstream imported just 250 of them, for just one year, in 2005. The van, and its Westfalia conversion, were built in Germany, where it's known as the Westfalia James Cook.

The Sprinter van is powered by the venerable 2.7L Mercedes 5-cylinder turbodiesel engine, and it gets a predictable 22 miles per gallon on the highway. It has a 5-speed automatic transmission, disc brakes on all 4 wheels, ABS anti-lock brakes, anti-skid control, power steering, power door locks with keyless entry, power windows, cruise control, air conditioning, and the optional engine monitoring computer that tells you when the next oil change is due. Oil change intervals are up to 10,000 miles. There's also a diesel-fired hydronic heater that pre-heats the engine's coolant for cold-weather starting.

The Westfalia camping conversion has so many features, I will probably miss a few in the following list:

Carries 5 passengers safely, with full seat belts and shoulder harnesses.
Sleeps 4 in two double-size beds, one on the lower level and one in the "loft."
Front captain's chairs, fully adjustable, with armrests, that rotate to face the living space.
Cupholders near front and rear seats, folding rear table.
Privacy curtain that covers front windows.
Dining table that stows in a special compartment over the front seats.
Full galley with LPG stove, sink, 12V fridge, vent fan, many clever stowage areas.
Rear bathroom with full-size toilet, sink and shower, large mirror and hidden clothesline.
LPG water heater, 12V electric pressure water system, fresh water tank.
LPG 2500 watt 120V AC generator and 30 Amp shore power.
Two gel-cell house batteries with built-in battery charger and monitor panel.
13000BTU Dometic roof air conitioner.
Espar diesel-fired forced-air heater with 3 ducts.
Fully insulated, all windows behind the cab are double-glazed, with screens and sunshades.
Electric skylight-sunroof, 2 high vent windows, roof vent in bathroom.
Gray and black water tanks with US-standard dump valves and hoses.
Flat panel TV with DVD player, roof antenna, cable connection.
Smoke, Carbon Monoxide and Propane detectors.
Class 3 trailer hitch with wiring harness.

In addition to all that standard equipment, this particular van (#155 of 250) has had numerous upgrades done, by the present and previous owners. They include:
Upgraded rear suspension with extra rear spring leaves.
Koni heavy-duty shock absorbers.
Oversized rear swaybar, upgraded swaybar brackets.
Spare tire carrier on rear door with full-size spare.
Turbocharger resonator has been replaced with an aluminum unit.
Updated stereo system with Rockford speakers and new Pioneer bluetooth head unit.
Memory foam mattress topper on lower bed.
Original air conditioner replaced with Dometic unit.
Rear-view camera with 7" display.
Custom fitted sun shields for windshield and front side windows.

This "Westy" is in very good, clean condition, with only 65,000 miles. The body is straight and rust-free. The interior is very clean, with very little wear showing. All the systems work. Maintenance is up to date, with service records that include recent laboratory fluid analysis. Complete set of operation, service and repair manuals. Brakes were recently overhauled, with new rotors. Michelin LTX-MS2 tires are brand new. Serpentine belt and all idlers and tensioners have been recently replaced.

Asking price for this van is $55,000. Recent sales have been between $45K and $60K, depending on condition and mileage. This example is well above average. These vans sold new in 2005 for almost $90K, and new similar vans from Airstream, Roadtrek and Pleasureway are selling for around $120K today.
