Feedback for this van on Ebay

Hello,
Was wondering what the thoughts are out there on the price for this van listed on Ebay. The van is located really close to my house, so might be worth looking at if not overpriced.
Thanks

It's around $25k for interior and pop top alone.

Seems promising. If it's in Ventura, vice Mojave, and if someone were really interested, I could probably make some time to give it a once-over since I live in Ventura.

That looks nice...

Also if anyone ever wanted to know if a Swing Gate Tire Spare Mount would work on a van there is one on this van...

It appears that it might have a furnace, or maybe it's just rear AC outlets.

Having a lien holder makes things a little more complicated, and that means you need to be a little more diligent in making sure everything is on the up and up, but it shouldn't be anything too unusual.

The 2nd row seats look tight, so nobody over 12 I'd think. Ditto the bed, I'd never fit- even if the 2nd row pivots to extend the bed, I still wouldn't fit. So it looks like PH only for average height adults.

On the drivers side, front to back, top to bottom that's: fuel fill, sink drain, 110v shore power, rear wheel, city water fill. Nothing I could see on the passenger side. No propane.

Overall it's nice from pictures. Kind of a different floorplan, I'd say if you like the floorplan go after it, if you don't love the floorplan don't be too quick with the bids.

Don't be a hater, just because it's not a 50 floor plan.

I have this floor plan and love it, but mine is in an extended van so 2nd row capt chairs have much more room. If you plan on using the sideways facing/ gaucho seats for travel, you must check to see if there are seat belts. The laws changed around that time and you can no longer travel in a sideways facing seat unless it had a seat belt installed( which they cannot do anymore).

Re: Feedback for this van on Ebay

Thanks for the replies, I emailed the owner with a few questions.
It does look like a tight floorplan from the pictures, so I asked the size of the lower bed; 48 x 65 which is way too short for my 6'5" hubby.
Penthouse is manual, not electric, and was installed in 2005.

Overall, my thoughts are that this floorplan would work a lot better if it were an EB van.
The space and storage are too small and limited for what I would want.

Thanks all
