New Member of the Family

A 1985 VW Westfalia camper van. We hope to use it to get out in nature a bit more. It has 194k miles, but is very clean and well maintained. It came with all its service records and manuals.
It has the very basic necessities compared with dad's van. Water, stove, fridge, and beds for four. We slept in it last night, and are still exploring all the nooks and crannies. We are debating names, with "Tan Van", "The Happy Camper", and "Ken's Folly" all in the running.

Let's hope this works out better than my last German vehicle, a.k.a. Rosie, the car we don't speak of.

You should get a poll going for names, my vote goes for "Ken's Folly."

I'm a fan of proper names. (My Westy is called Frances) And when I look at yours I think "Daisy" - because that tan looks so creamy.
