We are a family of 4 in SW Colorado looking for a great EB/RB 50 set up. Must be 4x4, sleep 4. Willing to travel to check out and pick up. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The Black Hills of South Dakota are a day's drive away. And our van loved climbing Engineer's Pass near Silverton too.

Re: Colorado family looking for eb/rb 50

after more research and some looking, we have decided to try and find an RB-50 with a gas engine.
do you guys think this one is way over-priced, or the going norm these days?

100k for 2012 w 44k miles seems high. About what would this cost to build new? 120? It is equipped well...

thanks for bearing with a newbie's questions.

It looks clean, and it's super low miles.. Nothing I would be too worried about on that one.

Re: Colorado family looking for eb/rb 50

It looks good. Are your kids comfortable sitting close to each other for long drives? I think the 50 couch is more like a love seat.

Otherwise, I love it. Storage is the hardest thing for us in an RB with 4 but we make do with a roof box.

Re: Colorado family looking for eb/rb 50

This one isn't 4x4, but it's about $20k cheaper than the V10 and newer...

^^^^

Nice van for the right price. Extended Body's extra room comes in handy.
