Default For $20k, what can I get?

I have about $20k devoted to finding a van, and have about $10k to build it out (I plan on doing it well). Of course, Iíd be willing to move those numbers around a little bit based on what I find, but those are my general numbers.

I wanted a T1N, but have given up finding a reasonable one near me (Southeast USA area). I now am wanting a Sprinters 170 NVC3. With the price range I have, what kind of mileage, year, condition, etc. would you suggest I look for? I want to arm myself with knowledge so when I find a good deal I know enough to jump on it!

Try poking around FL.. donít give up on a T1N! And donít be afraid if it has ~ 250k+. Really not many miles for a t1n (assuming it was reasonably maintained)..

I got a 2012 170wb with 38k on the odometer for $19k. It was like new condition. Got it from Ryder used vehicle sales. You might check with their website and see what's listed. Search Ryder UVS

I'd look for a 10-15K t1n like the one posted above...keep your build budget the same and have 5-10K left for maintenance...
