    Hi and welcome,:thumb:

    A lot will depend on overall condition, mileage, history, any extras, etc.

    Is it a dealer or private sale?


    More info needed to comment, or links if it is a dealer.

    Cheers

    2004 CI Carioca 10...our first van :RollEyes: all depends what you want from it ?

    very little storage space internally and externally.
    'roller shuttered' cupboard with slide-out TV tray, 12v socket and aerial point DIRECTLY ABOVE the front dinette....how do you watch TV :Doh:

    if i remember right it was on a JTD 2.0ltr Ducato chassis....fairly nippy and economical and not much longer than a family car so very easy to drive and park.

    we realised very quickly the layout was completely wrong for us, not having any lounging area yet 2 x dinettes :Doh: 1 x 4 seater and a 3 seater at the back.

    really didnt fancy our first long haul trip to Spain in it...sat in an upright seat for hours driving then sitting in an upright dinette seat to relax so we traded it after 6 months, at a £5k loss, for our next van (swift kontiki 640L) which turned out to be our perfect van, so much so we bought another after that one.

    it is said your 3rd van will be the one best suited for you...an expensive lesson.
