2000 SMB EB50 4x4 80k miles

Not mine, but looks like it's worth looking into....

The carbon dioxide detector must get a real workout

Strange description for an ad but at least it has a decent number of photos. My gut tells me a VIN check is highly recommended for this van.

There has been somebody posting a repeated spam/scam ad on CL all over the county for the past few months, for a 2000 SMB van. This ad doesn't necessarily equate with that, but I have my doubts. Or it's the deal of the century.

Saw it, drove it. Little rough around the edges but seems ok. Dent in passenger door, paint chips on back right. Onan wouldn't start.

Seller is not owner, he has signed title. Will ONLY take cash. No checks, money orders, wire transfers. Does not want the money to be traceable or ever in his bank account.

Carfax is clean, albeit with 5 owners.

I passed. Caveat emptor.

Yup. I had test driven it within an hour of seeing it here.

It could work out for someone, seemed liked a decent van, guy was just a little too eager for a cash only deal.

Looks like no propane system in this van?

Eager for cash only? Sounds kind've sketchy...

If someone is interested in it, the first thing I would ask for over the phone is the VIN and then run a check on it.

Correct, no propane. Onan generator (didn't start) and microwave. Large fridge, water, awning.

Yes, a little sketchy, but he did have signed CA title.

Herb
I ran carfax, and have the vin if anyone is interested. Clean carfax, 5 (!) owners. Started in CA, moved to OR for one owner, back to CA for last owner or two. Mileage all matches up.
