2001 E350 Should I Buy?

Im looking at a 2001 E350 7.3L. Shes got 104,000 miles. Its a panel van with no back seats (only the two front seats). Its in very good shape, no dents whatsoever. Its got windows on the side doors and back door. Its got a trailer hitch and brake controller already set up. I am going to pick it apart tomorrow, but I wanted some more info on them. I have always heard that the vans just dont have what the trucks have. Im taking my trailer over there tomorrow also to tow with it and see it the E40D is strong. They want $9995 for it but I told him that I wouldnt pay over $7,000 for it. Am I "low balling" for this?, is this a deal? Will I be dissapointed?

I have a 95 E350 diesel van that tows and runs just as good as my early 99 superduty truck. It also gets better mileage as well around 20 mpg unloaded and seems to run out better unloaded or hauling light loads. My van has 320k miles and my truck only has 260k but the van seems much stronger. My only complaint that I have with my van is the rear end is a 3.55 and would prefer 3.73 or 4.10.

Depending on how you are going to use the van I would check the door panel to see what rear end it is. If you are not going to be towing heavy a lot the 3.55 is a great rear end for these vans to get mileage and driveability.

I also think it is pretty sweet to have the T444E right beside me while driving. It is like the motor is inside the cab with you....pretty weird.
