Awesome looking rig, in a good place to get started (if your country will let you leave). Good luck with sale, just out of my universe for price


Nice vehicle but this can't legally be imported into the USA for 25 years, or Canada for 15 years. Too bad.


Compared with a decked out Sprinter van... (which are also lots of money) I would choose this one for a family of four.
Unfortunately , both are out of my league and the only thing I could afford was a 2018 Chevy trailblazer...
