The main question I have is how to set a price.
The van is not perfect but everything I read tells me that campers and RVs are incredibly popular right now due to the pandemic; I assume that means prices are likely higher than our research back in March and April would have indicated.
If anyone can speak to whether or not prices have gone up post-pandemic, that would be very helpful.
Backstory for anyone who is bored:
This vehicle belongs to my mother-in-law and my husband (her son) and I need to sell it for her. We were long-term boat owners and did quite a bit of long distance cruising, thus aren't completely unfamiliar with propane or DC systems.
We brought it to a local RV repair shop to get a full systems check, and the items remaining which we either aren't interested in fronting the money to fix or are enough beyond our skill set that the shop would do the work are:
1) the fridge cooling plate no longer cools; the shop recommends replacing the entire fridge for $1.7K but a replacement part for the plate is available for $600. We never had refrigeration on our boats, so we'd prefer to sell as is and discount the price.
2) There's a small propane leak; the van is currently scheduled to have that found and repaired at the same RV shop next week. All systems using propane were verified as functional (well, outside of the fridge's cold plate not getting cold).
3) There's a very small leak in an elbow of the water system the shop to fix / replace next week. (They didn't see this on their original survey as the kitchen faucet would not turn off; my husband replaced the faucet's cartridges, so it works but the small leak is now evident.)
4) There is not insignificant staining on the fabric covering the walls in the left rear corner and the right side by the aft dinette. The van lives outside in the Pacific NW, it's dry as a bone inside, and my MIL did have leaks repaired some number of years ago.
I need to price it both with the gas leak and water system elbow leaks as is as well as fixed; at this point, we do not intend to fix the refrigeration but would discount the price by 1.5-2K.
* She has Alzheimer's and lost her driver's license; we hold the financial durable power of attorney which allows us to sell the van for her.
