    Well your craftsmanship is first rate on this and I certainly think it's worth 8k. However it does have a limited audience and getting someone to pay that for a single axle cargo trailer might be a little tough. At that price you are knocking on the door of a used factory toy hauler which would likely have a full sized bed, bath and other comforts.

    If you find the right buyer though, you shouldn't have a problem with 8k.

    All this comfort and at 17-19 MPG while towing

    I agree completely, the right buyer that understands that this can actually be pulled with a 1/2ton pickup or SUV and doesn't mind showering outside.
    Thanks!

    I would love one of those but that has to be at least a 50k vehicle?

    Pvangel, you're not looking for a new trailer project are you? I got a stripped down VRV all aluminum dual axle 6X15 for sale. Some pics in Pittsburgh Area Riders Thread.

    I believe the new project will be a Toterhome type vehicle.

    It'll all work out, regardless. You've got great skills and whatever you decide, it'll be cool and we'll all be tuned in to check it out!

    I have...too much money and not enough room.
    4 bikes,gear for 2-3 days of riding,sleeping for 2, hot shower, I wish it would work because of mileage alone.

    Penske has 09 16ft box with 80k on them for 13grand, or there is one local that has 92k on it for 10grand.
    I think I would have to spend close to 20grand to get a Sprinter that has even under 150k on it.

    It doesn't get more badass than that! I remember those vans, back in the day.

    I recently got rid of one!

    The 440cid in it mysteriously stayed with me though. :deal

    It's a yellow and white box van. Thought you might like it.
    Not sure if it crosses a line regarding ins and regi, in your state?

    Yeah. I didn't have enough head room in my garage to lift it out. Ended up taking the front end of van off. With a grinder. :rofl
    I took it out with the trans, too.
    The rest of the van had pretty much rotted away. I bet 20% of the sheet metal was gone. Sure made it fast, though. It was only an E-block but it still wasted mustangs on the street.

    I just noticed the turbines on the yamahauler. I have mine stacked in corner of garage, right in front of the 440.
    I miss my old cargo vans. They were/are my favorite type of vehicle. Unfortunately the other half isn't so keen on them.
    I'm having a good time with my cube van so I can't complain too much. :1drink
    I'm excited to see the upcoming project.

    Hmm, the whole family?
    You're looking for a 4 door?

    That'll be my next one as well.
