Default Must sell 2018 Express custom campervan

So I built this beautiful campervan to replace my higher mileage custom campervan. Due to circumstances beyond my control, I need to sell it. Problem is, It's so unique, I can't put a reasonable figure on it. I don't want to under price it of course, but I'm just not getting any action on it at the current asking price. (67k) I don't have much experience selling things and am not very good at shameless self promotion. ( maybe I need to work on that) Craigslist postings just aren't getting the response that I had hoped and expected. What would you all pay for something like this IF you were in the market? Any input would be much appreciated. Here's the specs and pics:

Put it on rvtrader and hope someone will bite. Unfortunately custom vans are tough to sell for the money you want, good luck

I thought the 4.3 engine only went in the standard load vans, but this one has the 8 bolt wheels indicating the heavy version of a 2500 or a 3500. The heavier version would get the 4.8 V8 or 6.0. Did that change recently?

Don't think it's as common, but it is available. When Safari Condo sold pop-top Class B's on the GMC Savana (regular and extended) they all came with the 4.3L V6. Not sure if they were 2500 or 3500, but they had 8-lug wheels.

Nice looking conversion! Best wishes with the sale!

I pulled up some brochures from 2017 and 2018 and it appears the 4.8 was across the board available in 2017, but got replaced completely in 2018 by the 4.3.

I have found that prices for either new or used class b conversions are close to the following rule. For a new class b take the sticker price of the new stock van and double that price. For a used take the value of such un modified van and again double that value. I am not sure if my ‘rule’ is good for a self converted van, but for manufactured conversions I found it pretty close. Of course exceptions for higher grade conversions such ARV or Sportsmobile can break my simple rule.

Look nice, looks stealthy, but $67k for a van you can’t stand up straight in does seem aggressive.
