CornHusker - is this really a skoolie?

I mean, it is not yellow?
Looks more like a city bus?
Got cool, comfortable passenger seats?
Weird sliding glass?
AC?

Can I still be in the club?

I'm digging the paint job it came with. When do you pick it up?

Is that the one that the listing went on and on about being so well maintained?

The plan right now is to pick it up early next week(have not talked to UN yet) but that depends on a funeral (my aunt died yesterday) Planning on grabbing my nephew and strolling up for a snag. I think it will be perfect for me.

And I am not sure I have ever seen so much detail on a bus - they had 3 that sold today.

Check out the maintenance records

Very detailed records. Did the overheating issues from 07/05/2016 get resolved, I couldn't follow the mechanic lingo.

That is a nice looking TC2000 FE that was a commercial build rather than a school build. Outside of the seats, windows, and paint job it is basically a yellow bus.

For a sold price of a little over $3,200.00 that appears to be a pretty good deal.

The only thing I don't like about the bus is it doesn't appear to have air brakes.

A things I don't like about wet brakes on a bus that large:
  1. No hand brake will ever hold as well as a set of spring brakes.
  2. No wet brake system will ever come close to the braking surface and braking ability of an air brake system.
  3. Wet brakes go bad just sitting--water in the system rusts the parts from the inside out. Air brakes don't grow problems nearly as bad from sitting as do wet brakes.
Good luck and happy trails to you!

I have to guess the issue was resolved - it had almost 300 miles on it added before it was parked? More than the others that also had issues


I will blow it up anyway
