How come it always seems the 2015's are being sold?

How come sprinter-source allows its forums to be used in this way. No price. No van really. Just a “coming soon” sign to build up a bidding war.

Dennis runs a great independent shop near Denver, and has been an invaluable resource to this forum.

Slow your roll, soul, before passing casual judgement.

Cheers,
Greg

Worth investing?
Hard to say without seeing the van, the price, ...

But I am looking!

I did my research. Decided it didn’t warrant a free pass. And my comment was objective and aimed at sprinter-source. I stand by it. Too many people treating sprinter vans like real estate. And now in the case of the OP literally. If there is a van for sale, post pics, specs, price. Is that too much to ask?

Let's be clear here.
1) This van is not my van to sell.
2) A customer has asked me to sell it as a consignment.
3) I charge a minimum of 15% commission to do that PLUS expenses
4) Since the vehicle is a low mileage unit I considered it a worthy candidate to post on this forum. (basically no junk)
5) By merely giving the forum reader the Email address for the seller YOU (interested person) can negotiate directly with him the seller.
6) I don't nor my business intends to make even a brass farthing on this and lets make it quite clear I HAVE NO INTENTION OF PROFITING IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER on this transaction.
7) As many of you know I assist many members of this forum and I don't use it as a platform to flog stuff on the cheap nor promote parts sales as some do.
8) When I offer parts for sale on occasions as used or take off items the proceeds go to Mercy Ships not to my or my business coffers .https://www.mercyships.org/
NOW UCS308

Consider yourself thoroughly rebuked and as amends I suggest you donate $50 MINIMUM to Mercy Ships for your ugly post.
Try to do some good in the world other than moaning & belly aching about people selling THEIR stuff on this forum.
Let us all know when you have donated --if you have any cajones or dignity left!

Just to be clear which is it #2 or #6 . If it is #2 what is wrong with posting pictures and a price. Every consignment job I have done, I marketed and handled the transaction. If it is #6 your rebuke is some what warranted. I don't think anyone was complaining about you selling it. I don't want to speak for the poster that offended you but my take on the criticism is lack of information like price and pictures.

Pulling out some popcorn to watch this play out...

I think perhaps the original post was misunderstood, the way I read it Dennis is giving forum members here the chance to reach out to the owner of the vehicle BEFORE it comes to him for consignment. Irregardless of how it’s interpreted though, I’m not sure why any user at all would lash out at LindenEngineering, making ridiculous claims this forum is being abused. Take a moment to relax, maybe reread things before reacting.
