Hello everyone! I believe we are the fourth owners of ourbeautiful Riviera Camper. We bought her Spring of 2013. Since then we've camped and did a few shows with her....did someroad trips as well. She served as the kidshauler to school as well. We've thoroughly have enjoyed every minute spent with her and she's never let us down. Unfortunately, my health isn't very good and, for the past year, she has just sat in our garage. It's time for someone else to show her a good time and hit the road. I've done my best to describe any defects/blemishes under "Condition Description" box, the Bus is truly in amazing shape.Exterior: We believe at some point the nose and doors were re-sprayed (painted), the back half I'm not so sure about. I've gone over the whole Camper with a magnet and tapping, no bondo or previous body work noticed. Previous owner spot treated rust spots with POR-15, they've help up well. She came from California and has always been garaged. The pop-top luggage rack, above front seats, has a crack...looks like fiberglass material. The rubber edge liner of it, back section, is hanging down some. Replacing it would be pretty easy. All glass, rubber seals, windows are in good shape. The back hatch opening doesn't have clips for the mosquito netting....I thought about putting magnets on it, never got around to it (We have two nets plus lots of spareaccessories, books, tools, ever the silverware that came in her goes. The original Riviera tent as well. I will remove the stickers off of the window. The back hatch has the remnants of an original "Riviera" sticker. She's sort of rare in that, therefrigerator vent isn't one you see on many Campers. Plaques and other stickers are faded, plastic water access and electric plug are all in great shape for their age. Windshield wiper arms have corrosion but are solid.The body is straight and she really stands out anywhere she goes.Interior: Seats have rips but, underneath, the original brown material is there....driver side has a rip. Corrosion spots on foot steps and under front mat....that's it. Inside panel of sliding door has crack but overall, interior is in amazing condition. All original....has two really cool "Formica" stickers on cabinets....old school stuff. Sink, hand pump, all work. Electric pump was removed. Sink drains to removable tank with handle.Fridge only works with propane right now....I did get the electric filament needed to get it to work withelectric .....I believe I may also have an ice tray, need to double check that one. The stove isn't original...didn't come with one so I bought a "period correct" Coleman from Samba. Stove works and it's set up to hook up to a camping bottle...has some rust and top hingesaren't connected. The large propane tank underneath bus works and there's a hose that comes up through jumpseat...unfortunately it has the old attachment for original Riviera stove. Electric outlet, interior lights, aux battery gauge, all work....dome light is cracked but bulb works.Mechanically: The motor had a good leak when we got her. We eventually found out the oil cooler was the problem and it was replaced by a local mechanic. Most of the maintenance has been done by a friend I met through camp outs...he does mobile work, comes to your house works on VWs. Before we changed the cooler, she'd fire up with barely turning the key...now it takes a couple of tries. I'm sure sitting in the garage didn't help. I just ordered a new battery, she runs though. I added fuel preservative before parking her last. She drives like a dream...steering, braking are all first class. Was really surprised about that when we first got it, wasn't expecting to drive that well. My mobile mech adjusted valves year and half ago and changed fuel pump. I've gotten the AC to run twice...only lasted 2-3 weeks each time, blowing cold air (40 deg air!). The system probably needs a new dryer with a dedicated AC shop doing the work....fan blows fine. We've maybe put 3-4,000 miles since buying her.....at the most. All fluids were changed when we bought her, tires are nice Hankook brand w 50% thread and no rotting...spare same, looks brand new.Misc: We have additional plaid material for interior, a smaller table w stand,porte-potty isn't included (just showed it fits fine under jump seat)...neither is propane heater, I have two child cots....brackets need to be installed, everything pictured on table goes. The metal step, on right side used to enter Bus, needs a screw to secure it. I removed it....probably never had one, I didn't want it coming loose while driving. I'm sure I'm forgetting a few things, please don'thesitate to contact us with questions. I'll gladly provide any pictures you want. If you are local to Tampa Bay area and want to check her out, you are welcomed. She will be for sale locally so auction may be terminated early. Many thanks and happy bidding!
