It has Definitely crossed my mind. Only challenge there is that I’m limited to where I can wrench. I can do all of my finish carpentry, no prob; but doing Major mechanical is a hurdle.
I Have been looking at 2WDs though.
Interestingly, I got in to an email dialogue with a Reseller. Asking questions about ‘market’, insuring, etc. He said with the hoards flocking to (VanLife), the market isn’t really quantifiable. I used to use NADAGuide, Edmunds, and KBB to establish a “Market Value” prior to negotiations. He made it clear that I can just throw that notion right out the window. There will be someone (let’s just say millennial) right behind me, willing to bid the price Up.
Like the housing market Pre-2007 ...
