With social distancing becoming a prominent aspect of everyday life, the inability to socialize with other people is making everyone a bit stir-crazy. Getting outside has become a distant pipe dream, especially without a platform that can support your road-faring habits. But if you pick up this 1990 Volkswagen Vanagon Syncro 16 Camper, that might change.

The Vanagon Syncro 16 that you see here is a commissioned project from Volkswagen, itself, and features a suite of off-road additions that are sure to make any outdoor enthusiast rife with envy. Calling upon one of Germany’s premier vehicle outfitters, Special-Mobils, the manufacturer’s formidable on-road van has transformed into something a bit more boisterous, utilizing an upgraded pop-up camper, integrated solar panels, a modified electrical system, and even a hot water shower. It also features an all-new 1.6-liter turbodiesel inline-four engine, which was installed in 2015, to fuel its four-wheel-drive persona. With over 195,000 miles on the body, various mechanical and body improvements have been made, focusing primarily on the upkeep and restoration of the Vanagon’s chassis and metalwork. Head over to BringATrailer to place a bid — the current bid is set at $14,850.

Purchase: $14,850+
