Vehicles that were in the latest hurricanes are coming to the market, craigslist, Ebay and private sellers.

These articles talk about cars but it also applies to vans also !

Be careful of what you buy ....

Is it illegal to sell a flood damaged car?
It is not illegal to sell them, but it is illegal to sell them without disclosing the damage

Hundreds of thousands of vehicles were estimated to have been flooded in Texas, Louisiana and Florida during hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
