SOLD: Looking for price advice

Hi, all. It's been a long time since I've posted on the board, primarily because we haven't been using our SMB much lately. So, sadly, we are going to sell it. The hardest part about this is figuring out a fair price to ask. What sounds about right?

I would appreciate everyone's comments. You all have been so helpful to me in the past.

Here's a Google Drive link with photos:

Well cared for with oil changes and tire rotations every 5K-6K miles, fuel and air filters changed every 10K miles, cleaned and washed regularly. Non-smoker owners.

We love this van, and being photographers, it got us to a lot of places we otherwise couldn’t have visited without it. Unfortunately, our circumstances have changed, and we cannot use it as much as we would like to any longer. We want to pass this fine vehicle on to another adventurer that can take advantage of the lifestyle it can offer, whether it be another photographer, cyclist, kayaker, hiker, off-gridder, #vanlifer, or anyone who just enjoys escaping the daily rat race and getting out into nature.

The economy could be crashing so pricing it to high might really drag out the sell. I don’t know much about diesel but has it been bulletproofed? My couch estimate is $40-$55k. $40k being not bulletproofed and a fast sell.

Love the lay out. How long is the lower bed (ie bench seats)? Is it long enough for a 6ft person?

I think ~$55-60k if everything is clean inside/out and underneath(which it very much appears to be well-cared for). It has nice features and a good layout. Any add ons for 6.0 should be noted. Aluminess bits are lacking, which is a factor in my estimate. Really great van! Good luck with the sale!

They are 53" long. When the dinette is in bed layout, the area is 53" x 65".



My wife and I have both slept there when it got too cold to sleep in the PH. We slept a little bit diagonally on it. I'm 6'-1".
