A Little House Cleaning

After you remove the seats don’t be surprised if you find a lot of junk left behind by the previous or current owners of the van. In my case, I found candy, nuts, pencils, tiny plastic toys, french fries and dried soda pop.

Finding these kinds of things in a used minivan is not unusual. Minivans are usually owned by families with kids, and in the process of hauling them around, their droppings fall under the seats and eventually find their way into the vans cracks and crevices.

Knowing that, when you get the seats out, take the time to give your

minivan a good cleaning. Start by vacuuming the carpet and cleaning all the hidden cubby holes and storage bins. You may even want to go the extra step of cleaning the carpet.

Keep in mind you’ll be camping and sleeping in the van and you probably don’t want to live with the smells and debris left by the previous owner( s).
