So I bought myself an LT35 and now looking to sell my van and trailer. Want to put them up for sale in here but its hard to go firm on a price?? I know its all about who likes what and what its worth to them please be as brutally honest as possible with what you reckon its worth, that way I don't have to fool myself and waste time asking for stupid money. After a price for both sold together or seperated :(

Mate, a few people around here don't seem to like my valuations but they are usually quite near ther mark.

As with all things, your van is only worth what someone will pay ~ this forum is often totally detached from reality in that respect.

My usual disclaimer : these are not classic vans (yet) like a bay or split & this is not a good time of year to sell with regard to price.

Okay, I would currently value a basic panel van of that spec, condition & mileage at around £2.5-3K & add a premium for the extras at around £1500 ~ so about £4 -4.5K for the van alone.

Thats cool, honesty is the best policy. Im probably going to put it on ebay with no reserve and let it run for 30 days. What will be will be :) like everybody my van is easily worth 48k but im willing to let her go for cheap

Hobbyhorse your valuation was just slightly off. I took £6000 for the van (no tax) and £1600 for the pod. First person to view bought it.
Its been a month and i'm now looking for another T4 lol.
