ever since our 2009 foray into bed over cab freedom, purchasing gus with julie, lowell and my parents in new zealand, we have been on the lookout for a cheap and reliable motorhome to facilitate free camping in our own neck of the woods. not only was big bessie for sale in chilliwack, but she's based on the same full size '88 chevy van that i grew up with. my dad sold our van at 380k, so at 180k, bessie's got some spin in her duellies yet.
i guess not ALL the entertainment involved depositing concatenated mineral grains in aqueous solutions. big bessie came equipped with an iphone compatible aftermarket pioneer deck allowing us to rock out in the morning after breakfast. a speaker upgrade is planned shortly.
