Prices are driven by market acceptance and business needs, not by cost, but. I, and many other DIYers understand base costs of conversions which gives us cost grounded perspectives on some of these gouging prices. Before I ventured to DIY conversion we scouted the market, the fit and finish of the Airstream Van was just appalling. White upholstery supposed to force me to focus on it but a 1Ē skewed pantry door was just a minor fixable detail. If Airstream didnít improve their workmanship their profiteering prices are unjustified.
If would decide to get another camper van, primarily due to MB issues I would:
1. get another Sprinter Passenger Van with gas engine and transfer all of my floor and overhead modules to the new van. For reinstallation of tanks, water heater and plumbing I would hire someone,
2. or, set a maximum price at $100K and get a new camper van.
