I'm still in the looking and dreaming phase, but if I had an extra $16,000, I might consider this 2012 Savana.  I thought this was odd, though. At first glance, I thought the interior had rust, which made no sense. In the description, however, it says that the owner installed spray insulation. That doesn't look like it could possibly be effective at all. 

Is this a thing? Or is it just weird orange stuff that would have to be scraped off by the eventual owner? Smile
Spray foam is very effective. Higher R value per inch but more expensive.

Closed cell foam Wink
That foam job is a HUGE win if the next owner is planning on a conversion buildout. I can tell looking at the pics that it's a professional quality job... probably a value of $1500+ if looking to get someone to do it.
Damn. Now I REALLY wish I were ready to buy. 

I don't know why, but I assumed it would be thicker, and...puffy.  Smile

These things on a specialty rotary tool most likely:

it also has a shine like it has been sealed with something
I seen it done with a big saw blade by hand. the blade looks like a hack saw blade on the course side and is about 24 inches long, it has handles at both ends. you could make one any length by using a band saw blade. highdesertranger
