    Any websites that specialize in listing used converted vans?

    Is there any website that specializes in the sale of used converted vans for #vanlife/#rubbertramping? I'd travel to any state in the union for the right used van. Also any tips on buying used fleet vans? I hear those are really good deals as they are usually maintained really well. Thanks!
