Why so cheap?

Title explains it.. I'm currently in the process of purchasing an SMB from BrianW up in Philly. Can't help but wonder why this one is priced so low? I have some assumptions but wanted to hear from the pro's. Thanks!

It's at $6,300, with 11 bids and almost three days to go. Maybe there was a Buy It Now, but that's not available anymore. I wouldn't be surprised if it climbed up to the $9K - $11K range.

Itís a hard high top and not a pop-top, for starters. High tops are more common than the Penthouse versions. Not knocking the high top versions at all, as they work great for some folks. But a lot more companies make high top campervans and so thereís more to choose from. Also, generally the Ford platform commands a premium due to tons of aftermarket support and the platform basically remaining the same since 1992 (although some will say thatís a negative). As far as platforms retaining their value, usually itís 1) Ford, 2) GM, 3) Dodge.

Buying an SMB from someone who knows nothing about them is a very expensive prospect. You could easily get that ďcheapĒ for $10k and be another $10k into maintenance, tires, leaks, fridge repairs, rust etc. things add up very quickly. Unless you are looking for a project, always buy the best example you can afford.

Also, since itís an auction, my guess is at least one sale wonít go through and the price will end up in the $10-15k range

Registered here today just to post about this one.

I just got back from a scary test drive in the GMC, brakes completely failed...like all the way to the floor. Luckily the park brake works, but I had to leave it on the shoulder.
Van needs lots of maintenance throughout, and I wasn’t able to check most systems. Has some rust starting in the rockers and two doors.
Missing one of the upper bed panels, no propane, ac doesn’t work, missing mount for 3rd captains chair. Might have been smoked in...had a smell.
Would have to be cheaper than the 6k to be worth the trouble for sure. Good luck!

Good report. Hope it helps someone! I hope whoever wins the bid test drives it before paying.
