If they dropped a zero from the price, maybe.  Or if it has granite countertops and solid gold fixtures throughout the interior.  Can't judge since I can't see the inside.  ::)

It looks like it has been parked there for a while...I wonder why it needs a motor!

Here is another take... look at it as an antique. Depending on your wallet.. make a reasonable offer. They'll be glad to get rid of it from their lot.

  Then you spend 10-40K on restoring it AND You'll have a one of a kind. Put it on E-bay and make big bucks. I don't know if that'll work but there are folks out there that like antiques, with big bucks.

   This is not a viable RV but an investments, maybe. ;D

  Trying to cheer you up...   ;)

Howdy.
Does the engine start? How long has it been sitting? That is important because belts, seals, etc dry out. Is the chassis rusty? What is date of the tires, etc, etc.
