Best used Model X?

My daughter's family wants to buy a used Model X.
I was wondering what people think about the best year/battery/features to buy?
They are price conscious, of course, but want to have something that meets their needs which are:
- son-in-law is a firefighter who commutes about 150 miles to work (over Donner Summit... minimal energy use on the way down but high energy use on the way back up. In my Model S we use about 200 miles of range coming up over the summit.) He can charge at work.
- Family consists of two young children plus large dog.
- Need to put skis inside (6 seat configuration is probably best for that)
- Probably only sporadic Supercharging since have home and work charging so free Supercharging is probably not that valuable. Occasional trips to Bay Area will require Supercharging.

Suggestions for best configuration?
Any pointers on things to look for?
