This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is my first minivan for the Sims 3! I know it's not the best, and it's not a super sports car that everyone likes and wants, but it's a good family and affordable van for real sim families.

This Caravan cost $2,000 in game and can be found in the vehicles section. Enjoy!

This van includes 4 recolorable parts: The main body, the wood trim, the outer wood trim and then the rims.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

This is great! Not all my sims are wealthy and drive sporty cars especially when they live in dumpy houses .... so I think this type of style of car is needed - like the Pinto, or the Vega, or any "ordinary" car - not so much the high end cars! Thank you!

It is the best, in my opinion. I love realism and this make sense in my world. As I posted in another forum, hubby and I had this same exact car, '94 Dodge Caravan. We bought it when we were approved to adopt our two children, a sibling group. When you find out you are suddenly expanding your family, you realize the tiny sports coupes just aren't going to work. This brings back memories and will work for a number of my families. I don't have a lot of wealthy ones in my towns so they needs something less expensive.

I hope you do some more too! Some older model Fords, Volkswagen, Chevy's and other boring old cars would be fantastic.

Applause!!

I was so happy to see you create the normal family vehicles, especially the older cars for my less fortunate sims. Hope you create more on the older styles.

Same with me, my ts3 helper monkey wont work with mine because it has errors with security and stuff even though my computers administrator, and so I placed it in the file with the mods, and it still doesnt show up,
please remake them(:

So, I got it working, I was going to download a kitchen set so I had to update my game from 6.1 - 10.6 , so You might need to update your games peoples
