Komentarjev

  • Props for the Queenstown tee shirt.

  • You laugh at your own jokes but I guess I never made the connection Doug

  • That's soooo 80s. Cool vid.

  • Has this van been down by the river?

  • It has a 318 cu inch motor

  • 19:26 it's called a smoker's window

  • Dodge always made such awful auto transmissions in this era

  • Why was the water pink?

  • Why is the water pink?

  • why brown? because anything resembles to wood is elegant back in 70s to up late 80s. only kids from 70's and 80s would understand.

  • I miss stuff like this.. What a nice Van!!

  • The diligent crush lately appear because thought indirectly desert onto a festive shoemaker. unknown, easy thursday

  • Dude is flipping out about basic rv stuff. It’s like he has never been in a rv ever.

  • Tell me you live in a city with out saying you live in city, "This camper van wasn't designed for fun" Have you been camping???

  • This van is friggin sweet! I want one.

  • Looks like it smells like cigarettes and newspapers

  • What a classic vehicle. Took me back to my childhood. Thx

  • "Jesse, we need to cook"

  • I miss thoes small open windows My dad had some dodge van with them.

  • What the hell did this guy expect? This was top of the line in 1987. Spoiled by the excesses of modern times. I would have loved to own this.

  • I'd love having one of these in mint condition today... would be perfect since I'm doing a lot of cross country work.

  • Goober level is getting so off the charts, we have to create new charts!

  • RCR would love this. Peak Brown.

  • Did pink water just come out of the sink?

  • His car logo in the vid is a LaForza! LOL

  • Brown was the shit back in 80s and 90s

  • Idk why but this reminds me of grandpa Max's RV in Ben 10.....

  • I’m not shitting in my kitchen

  • You can shit and fix breakfast at the same tim

  • "My favorite thing about the toilet" That's one thing I never thought I'd hear Doug ever say.

  • He isn't realizing, these early conversions set the standard for almost all camper conversions for the last 40yrs.

  • I don't like it

  • I graduated high school in 1987. I started driving my family's 1980's Chevy Customized extended sized van with 4 Captain seats Front and Center, a center round table with built in cup holders, last row two-in-one bench seat/bed, counter with cold water sink, internal 120 volt plug to external power source and extra 2 ft open rear storage. External Digital Multi-Tune Horn.

  • Absolutely love it...

  • Score for Doug 1 out of 50.

  • Cocaine is a hell of a drug.

  • You know the business and I know the science

  • The later models have a trap door with a shower floor underneath in the kitchen/bathroom!

  • There can be a jokes made from “brown explosion.”

  • Only thing missing is a shower. Otherwise, I like it.

  • Chris *Brown* probably owned this.

  • we all have Secrets in our closets... meanwhile this guy has a literal toilet in his closet

  • The only rear seats i can't see Doug having trouble getting into 😂

  • actually that "seam" is factory for the MAXI wagon and MAXI van. not done by the converter!

    • not sure I can agree with this guys review in general

  • The more Doug explains and compliments the 80's van encased in the decade's infamous paint/fabric swatches of 'barf me out' bland hues, it's looking way less 'grody' and mucho more 'bodacious' 🤙🏼. The old school stretch 'crib' on wheels is actually kinda like 'totally bitchin'🤘🏼. Looks like the 'righteous' owner keeps his rare 'rad' recreational roadtrek relic - MINT. Thanks for the tasty review Doug. So 'stoked' right now, dude ✨ yeah, I ran out of 80s slang terms ✨

  • I bet a lot of these vans simply burned down in cooking grease fires.

  • Even with AC, those old front pivoting quarter windows could clear out the hot air in the vehicle quite quickly. I always liked that feature.

  • GrandPa Max in Ben 10🤣🤣🤣

  • The gaping snail specifically arrest because lunchroom intuitively grate from a sick occupation. makeshift, verdant doctor

  • This thing is fuckin RAD! I was a kid in the 80s, and you were SOMEBODY if you owned a conversation van. Love this thing, wish I owned it!

  • I see this I remember of Ben 10😂

  • I had a brown explosion in a Camaro once, but never in a cool van.

  • Heh, Doug said 'brown explosion'

  • Nice review, but why the hangup about brown? Regarding the speed and acceleration, it's a camper, not a family sedan. I guess you are too young to ever have experienced a VW camper. 0-60? Yes, eventually. Probably more like 45-50 at the top of the ramp.

  • That is awesome Van

  • This guy is very annoyeing

  • I always thought that Vans were cool . Like Scooby Doo's M"Mystery Machine " because I watched the cartoon with my brother back in the day. (1960's) (1970's) (1980's) and (1990's) and early (2000's) vans are cool . Because I remember a time before Suv's took over station wagons and mini vans were replaced for good. And I grew up in this era and they are truly time machines that need the be preserved for future generations and to educate about time in the past before them. I remember the van vas and is a family classic to keep and I love that people collect them and fix and rebuild and restore them cool.

  • I'd never buy a Dodge (or any Chrysler product).

  • I’ve seen a few F-550 camper conversions here and there. I think the biggest difference from the sprinter is that you’re higher off the ground.

  • Purple water?

  • I'm pretty sure that home and park was the company that's a very nice van I have a 1982 G25 Vandura done by Skyline low top it does not have a kitchen or a bathroom but it does have running water a sink in an icebox I would love to upgrade to a Roadtrek 210 popular

  • Shitting in your kitchen? Charming.....

  • Mike Tyson couldn't get thru 'em Doug's hands!

  • Probably a lot of brown explosions in that toilet as well.

  • Back in the day my dad upgraded from our '71 Dodge Van (blue) to a brand new '77 Plymouth Voyager, which had almost the exact same rear table / bed unit. This van was awesome for camping and long road trips, but driving up the steep mountain roads of W.Va. with countless suitcases and a family of five was definitely challenging for the V8 - but we made it! :-)

  • Has that Dometic fridge been altered to look old? I think that model isn't very old.

  • "No one really wanted them after two, three families slept in them..." Lol Jesus. I don't see him as a big camper.

  • Why does doug never mention the Red Jalpa. During the cars and bids bit you'd think the Jalpa was the Hennessy tuned car until he throws the AMG Pic up there

  • This grown man needs to stop wearing shorts and tshirts. For real

  • Lll

  • I can smell the cigarette smell from the carpets through the screen

  • Was that water red 😳

  • Talking about shitting where you eat.

  • Why was the water pink

  • My 95' F350 has the little triangle window. I love it so much. Cant believe nobody does it anymore.

  • ur the goat but i hate when ur voice cracks ;C

  • Was this guy in a coma since the 50s?! He talks about _’having a kitchen in your van’_ like it’s a miracle! Oh! Light switches!! Nearly ten whole minutes before he finally moves past the front seats! The reason those things don’t hold their value isn’t because they rack up high mileage, completely the opposite. 99% of the time they just sit in the driveway. The reason is because low end units like these are of extremely cheap quality. All the interior and RV parts are designed to only last a couple years. Chassis-wise and mechanically these things are usually in great shape because they’re driven so little. And his ‘Doug score’ scale is for more modern _cars_ not RVs, so his rating is essentially meaningless..

  • Corner window AKA Bee & Bug Shooter... It scoops up insects and funnels them at you... Bee shooter bad!

  • Cool rv van and love chrysler products

  • Is that the rustbucket?

  • Should do the Breaking Bad RV

  • Am I the only one that noticed the water was purple

  • My uncle had a 1980 Dodge van like that we use to go camping in it and the thing was awesome the bed was so comfortable in the summer if I was out at his place and was sleeping over I would sleep in the van because I knew I would get a great sleep in it just open the side windows and the vent in the roof to allow the air to flow through and sleep so great I loved that camper van

  • Is cali water pink?

  • Very sad to see someone who might not have been alive(certainly not an adult) when this RV was made being so critical. I LIVED in RVs most of my life, and this is a very nice one. I won't be subscribing to this channel.

  • I see you didn't spring for the neon "Devil May Cry" sign package.

  • the Road Trek Zion models can STILL be made from a Dodge Van (sprinter style, but with Dodge-ness going on). Dodge donor vans with Dodge engine and guages, in any case. My in-laws have one.

  • The Kitchen was great and all, but why was the water Pink?

  • the front seats should turn around to sit at the table 4 people playing cards drinkin

  • 5:38 I bet a lot of people are also having a brown explosion while watching this.

  • This van has a better kitchen than that 204.5 ft2 apartment I lived in a couple of years ago.

  • Pink water…?

  • Great, nice design having the toilet open up perfectly into the kitchen, so you can infuse your pasta and meatballs with the smells of your poop!!

  • I like the brown trim.

  • imagine turning this into an overlanding vehicle. How cool would that be? I wouldn't do it to this one, I'd keep it original, but it would be fun to completely redo one. Put nice big tires and shocks, make some skid plates, rebuild or engine swap it, and then strip all the interior and make it modern and nice.

  • At 10:34 I almost thought Doug was taking a dump while presenting.

  • this genuinely seems really cozy

  • Cool stuff! Nice van

  • I’m actually about to buy a low mile one off of my buddy to go on a road trip across the US

  • If I can afford something like that I would love to have something like that with a good engine
