Nice rig, but does seem pricey. FWIW, Ultimate Truck Performance in Camarillo does excellent work and is a well regarded shop which really understands diesels. Like many sellers who sink big dollars into repair/replacement, probably trying to recoup all that cost.

Yep, that is spendy.

Putting my '03 E350 7.3 Quigley w/79K miles up for sale soon and still trying to figure out a fair and reasonable price.

The word bulletproof is jargon. Lots of other details but the add is lacking on any of the work done to the engine, whether or not it's studded, or have any of the mods that make the 6.0 reliable.

Whew, $89K!

It's got leaf springs. With an Atlas transfer case it appears to be an SMB conversion.

Seems lacking in information but it's a fairly loaded down vehicle. Still, that's a hefty price. Too bad they didn't take more pics of the inside. Guessing it has a rear & upper bed being they're saying it sleeps four. It looks like it's a standard 50 model. Sounds like it has an Espar Airtronic but no mention of hot water heater or even if it has just has a flat plate. Says Starcool but not which model (probably has the 12vDC & shore power model?). It looks like the top has been sprayed. Is an automatic top an electric???...I'd think so. Probably semi-float axle? No lockers? No on board air? I'd say that the rig cost under 100k when new.

Hi folks,

My first post. This van is for sale again at 89k. I have financing in hand a just watched a comparable van with 30k less miles and a year newer sell for 85k, out of Seattle, WA.

Never a SMB owner, but have had VW buses and love the EB50 floor plan. I inspected and test drove this van and it is solid, but not really sure what a reasonable asking price should be. It is ARP studded with moly pushrods installed. Brand new turbo with all supporting docs...

I'd love to hear from you all.

Thanks, David

Pics or a link would help. The original link is dead.
