Sounds like a bus!
Tranny is less than ideal and I like air brakes, fwiw.

I too would rather have the Air and a 3060 tranny. But, money may talk on this one. I long for more HP and well I am thinking of either waiting for that BIGGER ENGINE and Tranny match up or wait for Bus #2 to come along. Bid price is up to $1925 right now. Oh! and no RUST!

It sold for $1925. I had a doubt. I will wait for a different bus and build my budget bigger.

I got air brakes, air ride, and a 643 tranny in my bus and it was only $2150 on GovDeals. In Kentucky.

not much rust and made the 800 mile trip home, what more could I ask?

I'm sure you'll score the right land yacht soon enough... just don't settle too much there are lots of GREAT buses out there you just have to know what to look for and patiently watch for a deal.
