Finding it really hard to know how much vans are worth, why is there so much variations. Is there a guide anywhere that will tell me how much for what year roughly. 2003's or 07's same price as a 2011?

There's a host of things that can affect the price:

1. Private or Retail sale.
2. Condition of Kombi
3. Options fitted
4. Mileage
5. LHD/RHD
6. Number of owners
7. Service History

.... and finally one of the biggest and most often the reason for your question, people not researching the market and making a proper assessment of what their campervan is worth. Many often think they're Kombi is worth more than it realistically is and occasionally someone will hugely undervalue their BraziBay.

I keep a close eye on the market and often get asked to help value a camper or what my thoughts are on pricing. If you need any specific help, send me a pm.

Look at the line along the bottom of anyone's post - there's a thumbnail 'mp' - click that.

Agree with Tim's comments.

We found it easier to first set a maximum budget and stick to it.

We created a list of essentials the Kombi needed to have, with another saying 'what would be nice'.
Then we set out to see the best we could get for our money - not necessarily the newest.

Doo not rush to buy the first thing you see, if something is not right then walk away.

At the end of the day a Kombi is only worth what someone else will pay.

Always worth negotiating too.
