    Alright, I'm not really thnking of buying this right now, but it is a VERY rare bird at this point in history because its in stock ready to pick up now...

    What do think would be a regular street price on this unit if it were not for Covid related shortages?
    What do you think would be a good deal in normal times?

    55k?! No. It cannot be a good deal in normal times. Inflation or not, the prices of vans should not be as high. Even though, the current rates and trailer shortage may justify the price but the rates won't last so long so this price would become normal either.
    I guess they can be in 40s at the most but 55k is trying to find someone desperate and eager.

    IIRC @rollin coal bought a brand new one like this for just North of $32k not so many years ago. Fairings are the only thing his didn’t have.

    In normal times 55k could get you a brand new, fully insulated, aluminum floor reefer trailer, minus the unit of course.
