Seems like a pretty good price.

Yeah I agree with Jin, think it's priced right and if I bought it I'd want to convert it to 4x4 with Expovans coil kit.

What's up with the tape on the window behind the barn doors??

Seems like a fair price to me....and a combination of features you rarely see together(V10, high roof, 50 floorplan)....

.....which is why it's really hard to resist given that it is 10 minutes down the road from me!

Good thing I'm heading out of town this weekend.

^^ BB, it's a tempting one ain't it??

But seriously, every time I start to consider an EB though....

....I remember that once ya hang a bike rack/pair of mountain bikes off the back of one of those, the rig becomes overall way too long to fit into a standard parking space. Navigating tight parking lots to hit up shopping centers while on a trip would be way too much of a stress-inducing headache for my bones....the curse of the mountain biker....

(Yeah, I know....first-world problems, haha....)

MSD, looks like he's having the dreaded CRL awning window issue. Here's a thread describing the problem and all the effort rallypanam had to put into finding a remedy:

I've got 40,000+ miles driving our EB SMB with 3 bikes hanging off the back. It's not that big of a deal once you get used to it, and we've rarely had an issue finding a parking spot, even in crowded national parks (Glacier, Lake Louise, etc.).

Hey Brian, good to hear!!! Cool to know it's hasn't been a deal-breaker for others who tack on the bike racks.

Having those extra couple feet of interior length/volume (vs an RB) sure does look nice.
