Not sure on pricing....
I have found that price is all relevant as to location and availability. You can hold out for the $1000 here or there and then miss out on one or two seasons of quality time with family that you can just not put a price on period.
Think very hard between the two - Vintage and New. To find a good quality vintage needing minimal work is really really hard to find. Be prepared to have your budget squashed with vintage in a matter of weeks. Your ideas and thoughts will change considerably as to what you want and need with the vintage - sometimes good and sometimes bad.
We love both and both have their advantages and disadvantages - it just all depends on your situation.
If you might be interested in a 1961
26' Overlander in need of some work along (I think there are still some pics in my gallery of when we picked her up) with some very reasonable parts from a 2000 Excella that can make her what she needs to be - A great Family Vacation Vehicle - then PM me.
Our initial goal was to retain the vintage look on the outside and update the inside due to its use as a Oil Rig Bunk House in Alaska. The electrical system is the only thing that works - we have replaced the running gear. Nothing else has been done. We had purchased most of the parts we needed for the restoration like waterheater, all new running lights, porch light and several parts from the Excella such as skylight, fantastic vents, possibly the fridge, Microwave, cabinetry. Toyed with the idea of the excella Bathroom - but could not get the layout right without loosing a side window - the options are endless if you have imagination, time and inclination. (Oh a garage to work in year round also helps)
We have not sorted any pricing yet - but we are considering selling it now that we have the newer CCD. We are keeping our little 19' GT though, as a hobby and hope to finish her one day in the next two years. Some of the Excella parts have been slated for her too - like the AC is already taken and installed on the GT. Solar panel and system is now slated for the CCD.
PS the Overlander can be what ever layout - there is a back bathroom setup then the mid section is presently set for two singles but many were set up for doubles as well you could go for singles plus bunks over top.
The front had nothing there and can either be designed for a large L type seating with a great dinette set up Rather than just the couch. The galley is spacious and has room for the full size fridge - there is a working 80's propane Dometic fridge in it. I would not trust the furnace in there, however we had considered installing the excella furnace instead.
