Re: Only One Coach Battery in Pleasure Way Sprinter TD
Used Sprinter B prices are high. (often higher than NADA valuations) That is good news for sellers. Do a web search and expand the range to maybe 1000 miles from your location to get a good idea of asking prices.
It is an 8yr old - soon going on 9 year old - vehicle so likely (expected) to be on it's second set of tires and batteries. If not, those are expenses you'll soon incur so factor that in.
I like that generation of Sprinters for the great MPG number but several RV'ers who owned that model and the newer 6 cylinder praise things like ride comfort and handling in the newer Sprinters.
Out West, in Canada, in 2005, that model sold for around $100,000. I remember looking at one at Peden's on Vancouver Island but I can't remember if that price included taxes. It's the number I remember considering. I was wowed by it but I ended up spending about half that on a 1 year old Chevy based Roadtrek at the dealer across the street. Coincidentally, looks like both RV's would have depreciated roughly 50% in the 8/9 years.
That's less than 50,000 miles on it so there should be a lot of life left in the diesel.
