That's a nice, clean looking bus! Congrats! Hopefully all she needs is a little tune up to get her in top running shape.

Looks very clean and rust free....as for the family in town, perfect! Put'em to work and you'll have the seats out in no time,

Man, that is one clean looking bus! The engine and underside are pristine. Usually see at least the engine bays looking dirty/worn even when they are maintained regularly.
Question: what did you do about insurance for getting her home, or did you not worry about it? I'm waiting to hear back from my insurance agent on if my auto policy covers me for a bus purchase like it would buying any other vehicle. Normally covers you for any new/used vehicle you buy until you can get it home and call them to add it to the policy, but I'm not sure if a bus would be covered since they might technically see it as a commercial vehicle even though I will be registering it for private use.

Awesome looking bus you got there. Nice and clean. You're making quick work of things. I hope the rest goes as smooth for you. You've come to the right place for good advice. Keep up the great work.

I called my insurance company and asked about coverage during the transport of a new vehicle. Now, I am a liability-only customer because my daily driver is not worth the policy to cover it. I was told that I would be covered as the driver, granted I did not mention what type of vehicle I purchased. So, with policy card, title and bill of sale in hand I drove her home (6 hours) sweating bullets and crossing my fingers.
