Some quick research on Expedition Portal shows that these have traded in the past for about 10% of this asking price, leaving more cash on the table for village construction at Burning Man. The price of buses and RV's which have been used for personal exploration and expansion of consciousness is driven by scrap value and inconvenience of storage, not rarity or pedigree.
Complete with a happy place to escape the talking Faygo bottles, gauges that watch your every move, and captains chairs trying to approach and smother you, the Motoroam is an appropriate refuge if you prefer your trips to be period correct.
