1992 Sportsmobile Ford E250 pricing/sale advice

Hi, I'm selling my 1992 Sportsmobile & want to ask for your help with pricing & any sale tips?

Although I've never posted, I enjoy reading your expert opinions and have learned alot from you over the years

I'm about 1/2 hr south of Seattle and am moving back to Santa Fe in July. If I don't sell her here I'll drive her to Santa Fe and sell her from there.

She's got more miles than others listed on craigslist (155k) all Southwest or West coast. I'm the second owner & purchased her from Sportsmobile West in year 2000.

She's currently listed at 26k for the Seattle market, but the number of miles makes me think I should come down in price...

Any thoughts of a price range for a quick Seattle sale?

Here's the posting with photos & more details;

I am so sad to have to sell her - but life events are making it necessary.

Thanks everyone - I appreciate your time and expert advice!

For a quick sale (within a week or so): $10-13k
For a moderate sale (within a month): $13-15k
Full price sale (probably will take several months or more): $19k

I have had my 1993 for sale for 3 months and have had no actual offers, just people looking. It has 277k miles but has a rebuilt engine/trans. I am currently asking $16k with little to no action.

I have shown the van to at least 13 different parties, but they all had never seen one before and just wanted to look at it. Here is my ad, you can see that it has been lifted and has other features, but yours has water system and other stuff. Remember, your van is now 27 years old. Most people shopping in the $20k+ range will want 4x4 or will want to finance part of it and you cannot finance yours (or mine).

I'm with grampswrx. You are about $10k overpriced. 90s RWD Sportsmobiles are generally no more than $15k. Still a lot of money for a 27 year old RV. They hold their value well.
