I think someone approached the main issue:
- custom - has a wide variety of interpretation, and a huge range of budget. I spent the day with Tango
and the diifernces are very apparent.
Tango has talent, taste and style, and a very apparent focus on the custom aesthetic.
I, on the other hand, need a box to haul my shite around in.
But my "box" is custom, yet nowhere near the value of a ground-up, custom, one-off build like Tango's.
I would be happy to sell my conversion for $10k, and Tango would be a fool to sell his for less than $30k when he is done, but, would there be a bigger market for a redneck, $10k box, or a $50k, classic, art-bus-conversion?
I don't know, but I would not risk the time and money hoping there is a market for premium, "used" bus-conversions.
It would be awesome to think there is a huge market for an Ideal-skoolie-conversion, show me the evidence
