    Also a note, how many people in general will hop in one of these and drive 1000 miles or more? The sellers will always say that they are roadworthy.....

    But if you had 100 units for sale over the course of a year how many new buyers would trust it to drive a distance like a modern vehicle. Point I'm trying to make is that I feel 90% of units are land locked within a small geographic area because of old tires even. These are only my opinions however I'd feel more confident now with the ball in my court for a purchase

    I hope you can find a 310 diesel. I'd rely on the experienced members opinions on values.

    Sadly my purchase of $9100usd went to $27000cad in short order with my unit still being a tent on wheels with zero systems working. Worst money pit a person could imagine that's on top of traveling 2200 miles one way home..... To much of my shock seeing a bill of sale in the stack of papers I inherited with my unit showed it sold in 2009 for a mere $2000

    I feel/ hope there is great potential long term for maintained/ fixed units however from what I have observed after my purchase ( buyers remorse to check actual values) I feel an actual price on an active run of the mill unit is close to the $10000 range. I've heard iszuzusweet say a diesel is worth $5000 above normal gas engines resale but I'm not so sure on that myself? Remember many of these units are parked long periods and the demand is very low..... not many have the $$$ to fix or appetite.
