What do you folks think of this incomplete machine with a $44,000 diesel motor upgrade, 2,900 miles, $521,915 MSRP?

If the MSRP is $521k, what is the realistic selling price? As for the ebay ad, I'm quoting from the seller: "As for the reserve it is set far below half the MSRP"

It sort of looks like the inside of my house. Lots of unfinished projects.

Here is the link:

I don't think the MSRP has much if any bearing on what a fair price is as the MSRP is based on a new factory fresh completed vehicle that is warranted stem to stern. This is a pig in a poke. It has a bunch of spendy stuff, will the buyer receive the benefit of any warranty for the various equipment? I would base any estimate as to a price on what a used one of this year and model would go for at wholesale and then subtract every dollar amount which would represent repairs necessary to bring a used one up to a usable condition.

I' also research all I could as to issues with any of the components. How do other motorhomes built on that chassis get rated. And everything else as well.

Hey all.....

Actually that 500HP rating is real.... that is the max rating in a motorhome-type ISM Cummins. I would not have believed it either but a friend of mine has a 500HP ISM Cummins in a Holiday Rambler motorhome. This guy must have had the computer played with to uprate it up to the motorhome rating......

See y'all! Gary
