Default Nice basic camper on Ford Transit

Seems like a nice basic camper van.
From one of my favorite channels on Youtube.

$135K for a "nice, basic camper van"? On a $45K gas chassis?

Another niche offering.

Basic indeed, no hot water, no toilet, no solar, no innovation but juicy price. But it will sell because it is cheaper than some than other ones and you can take a 20 years loan.

I can't see them selling many. $90k for that upfit? Yeah right. There's some nice stuff in it but it's very limited. Of course I think my van is absurdly overpriced too... Lol...

You think?? Really cheaper?

Watching this video made me feel a lot better about my Sprinter 3500 with features like a full bathroom/shower, generator, solar panels system, dual rear wheels, house air conditioning , 5,000 pound towing capacity, 2,600 pounds payload capacity, diesel-powered engine and 19 MPG.....

Pretty much everything this doesn't have...I can't see the value of spending $135,000 on this "nice " transit van?

What's so nice about it?

I thought I overpaid for my rig used two years ago, but, now, I know I didn't..

A 20 year loan...you could easily pay over $75,000 more in interest...I wouldn't call this a sales point...

Now I know why I like my 210. I hear him pushing you can finance it like a home....so he is selling payments, and to some that is a good thing. Ron

I'd like to hear what you really think....

I would expect you not to be particularly impressed by the features..? Maybe I'm wrong?

They don't care about anything else.... they're going to make a killer profit margin on this..... And, it won't last 20 years.... without a lot of extra money.....

I believe this van at this price is ridicules. It would be OK at $40K.
