I've been searching the ads for used 2wd gas RB50 SMBs, but finding one in my area (southeast) is not easy. Now my primary vehicle is acting up, so I'm seriously considering (again) a new build. (It would be my daily driver and mobile office, and I may possibly fulltime in it in a few years.)
I was thinking Chevy, with a PH, but then I thought if I go with the Transit or ProMaster, then I won't have to get a top (I could get a van with a high roof) and it would cost less (right?). But they aren't as wide as the Chevy, so an RB50 couch/bed would be narrower in those.
I keep going in circles. I want a simple build (RB50), and I'm a less-is-more kind of person... except I live in the southeast so I think an air conditioner is a need rather than a want.
What do you recommend? Does anyone know what a basic RB50 build would cost (with A/C)? I get overwhelmed with the options and pricing, and when I try to look at the price sheet for a Chevy, the link doesn't go anywhere.
Do they have a SMB for Dummies book anywhere?
