I avoid keeping precise records simply because it is less painful.

But the labor cost on building vans is huge.

Clearly you gain some efficiency the more you do. But reality is it's a time suck. The price reflects that.

And Slammit is building vans to make a profit. There's a market for it.

Look at OSV. And their wait list.
