I have been looking at both the SMB listed in the add and a couple of others as well. I am also waiting on a quote to buy new to justify the used prices being asked.

The one you listed is SUPER CLEAN

If my budget were $100k this is what I would get- new quigley transit, ecoboost, mid roof passenger for about $60k, financed at a new car rate of 3%. Then I would take it to colorado campervan and get a pop top put on it and an interior built out to my liking. Would probably end up around $40k. Then I would have ford factory crash rated seats, a bottom bed for my kids (I have 3- 9, 6, 2) and the best pop top on the market.

Now I have 4x4, a comfortable highway cruiser, seating for everyone, sleeping for everyone and all the other stuff I need. Plus, I can basically stand up inside with the top down.

If you ever come to SoCal, I am happy to let you check out our 3 rental vans. You can even drive them!

That is great information about the 4x4 Quigley transit ecoboost. I understand the processes except for the crash rated seats. Where would you get those?

Also, as a matter of fact we were thinking of coming out for the fourth. I see a lot of people saying PM, but not sure how to do it. We would definitely be interested in renting one of the rigs if one is available for the weekend of the fourth...

I just mean ford factory seats.Rather than replacing them with seats by sportsmobile. I am sure SMB makes nice seats, but there's no way they are tested as rigorously as an OEM.

Man, at these prices maybe I need to convert my 2011 EB SMB to 4x4 and sell it to make some serious cash...
