Anyone mention hyperinflation?
We're nowhere near that. Inflation in the US is relatively low compared to historic levels, except when compared with the previous decade (2010 to 2020) of very low inflation rates.
For those whining about the current (Covid induced) inflation, look at how things were from the 40's through 80's:

Inflation? Pffft.. nothing to worry about. Biden, Pelosi, and Shumer got 'yer back.
Driven by folks who think "Pfft" when dealing with a pandemic.
But there's no cost associated with nearly a million US dead due to the disease, is there? That sort of attitude almost cost your president his life.
I should add that the Carvana value is especially nice in my situation where the intended use of the van hasn't really been as much as I planned, and I sort of regretted buying it a few months ago because of that. So it's especially nice to come out ahead in this case.
As to the Ram ProMaster being a "TrashMaster".... I love the thing, drives beautifully and have hauled a 3,000 lb lathe in the back with no problems. Still at only 2,300 miles perhaps the "trash" aspects will show up later. From what I have read online and from a multi user, the Nissan high van is even worse. I test drove a new Mercedes Sprinter that not as quiet and smooth as the ProMaster and cost a couple thousand more outfitted the same (plus future maintenance issues like where besides dealer to get service), that leaves the Ford Transit, which I guess is ok but here again cost more than the Ram.
Glad I never got around to spending $ installing flooring and subwalls in the back as that wouldn't have increased it's Carvana value by one cent.
Yeah, when Amazon gets all tooled up finally, there will be a glut of Enterprise and every other rental fleets full of used trucks for sale - CHEAP!
Good grief, that whole Amazon thing ....
I did a round trip to the far side of Pennsylvania summer '20, and I was seeing truck loads of Amazon vans going east, and then truck loads of them going west.
What on Earth?
Think Snow Eh!
