Well, i can tell you that it is going to be expensive for you to buy a van in uruguay and then travel. In uruguay mostly all tipe of car are more expensive than in other south american countries, like argentina.
It is very easy to buy a van, but in order to cross the border you need to hire an insurance, since it is the law in uruguay.
As for the price, it can variate, but around 10.000 or 15.000, in good conditions. it is expensive.
well, i hope you can use this little information. If u need any specific info let me know, im from punta del este, uruguay.
