2007 4x4 Ford E350 RB SMB 6.0 Diesel For Sale

Unfortunately after 10 years of ownership (single owner) it is time for us to sell our van. The reason is that we are just not able to use it enough to merit keeping it. We just completed our last camping trip in Morro Bay over Thanksgiving and realized it was the perfect memories to leave with.

I'm still not sure how much we will be listing it for but I wanted to make it available here first. I'm bringing it into our mechanic on Wednesday to have it fully inspected. Please let me know if there are any questions. Here are some details. There are pictures in my gallery, I'll be working on getting good/current pictures that show everything over the next week.
  • Sportsmobile West build in 2007
  • ~74,000 miles
  • SMB 4x4
  • Kyocera 130W Solar Panel

Nice truck. Is the price in there and I'm missing it or is it just MIA?

Thanks! We haven't set a price yet, still trying to figure out what is fair/reasonable. Sorry.

Or, hoping for a bidding way maybe? Let me know what price you decide on. It is what I am shopping for.

I promise I'm not looking for a bidding war of any kind. I want to make sure that it is mechanically sound before we sell it. I have no reason to believe it isn't but that is why I'm bringing it in. As far as the pricing is concerned I've seen a huge variance in the listing prices so I'm trying to determine a fair price for both a buyer and ourselves.

My best guess based on what I've been able to find is in the $60,000 - $70,000 price range but I'm also thinking we would be on the low end of that as the van does not have Aluminess bumpers or an electric top. The biggest problem is that every van is different that I've seen listed. For example, this one is pretty close overall but has a lot more options and included a trailer - https://sportsmobile.com/inventory/cars-for-sale/2007-ford-rb-e350-diesel-4x4-bullet-proof-plus-military-trailer/.

Here is another one that is probably a bit closer to what we have - https://sportsmobile.com/inventory/c...0-4x4/#mainpic

Please send me a private message if you want to discuss the van before we have a price figured out.

I will update this thread with a price and more details/pictures once I know more. If anyone is reading this and has a thought on a fair selling/buying price please let me know. I will probably be contacting SMB for help once the van inspection is completed as I'm relatively clueless on the value.

Dang, I hate to see another long-time forum veteran and contributor move on. You helped me a lot with my solar installation.

Anyhow, my guess is 70k. Or, even more. Might want to mention you have a 6.0 psd in there. Some might know that a Garret turbocharger means diesel but it's a nice clean E350 which are in short supply.

Thanks Joe! This has definitely been the best forum I've ever been a part of. I joined it before when we were going through the ordering process over 10 years ago and the amount of help I received along with the information contained in the forum was invaluable.

Also, thanks for the feedback on the price/description. I think the title of the thread mentions the 6.0 diesel but I will update the description as well.

So, you still have the TDI Golf? We sold our TDI Jetta Wagon back to VW once the dust had cleared.

EDIT: Strange, I can no loner edit the original post .

Ha, reading comprehension is not my forte'. Looks like your covered on the diesel front! I do indeed still have my TDI. Trying to decide whether to keep it or take the money. Not sure they even have a fix yet for my year.
