I went and drove the bus last night. Everything seemed to check out; no leaks, transmission shifted fine, brakes worked very well, etc. The gasser didn't have any extra power to throw around but it will get the job done for what I want out of it. Getting the title switched today after work.
I did find some vinyl click together plank flooring for $0.99/sq ft. I figured that I will have around $0.81/sq ft for the laminate after I get underlayment. So, for less than $50 more I can have a lot more peace of mind about my floor. I decided that it was worth it and purchased the vinyl. Thanks for the feedback!
