That's too much. We pay $350/mo here in Socorro. We have Cable with HBO, free Wi-fi, Water/Electric/Sewer. No deposit. We also don't get much snow! You do have to have your own bathroom here.

That sounds like an amazing deal to get an alternator installed! You got lucky on that. With a 40 year old vehicle, you can expect frequent breakdowns until you have pretty much replaced every part that can possibly break. You might want to get a mechanic to go through the bus and give you a list of pre-emptive parts replacements you can prioritize based on cost. Especially those parts that bring the bus to a standstill in a possibly inconvenient time and place when they stop working.

This is the experience I've had with old vehicles. There are a couple years of frequent breakdowns and parts replacements, and then eventually it gets more reliable since I've pretty much replaced everything that is likely to malfunction.

Re: The Hubbly Bubbly Bus!

you may have a bad starter, Iv seen brand new ones pack up in less then a week, and rebuilds can crap out the same day you put them on.

good luck to you, hope to see you on your way soon.

gbstewart,

btw, thats w very nice offer itsme1738,

You might try sending a private message or email from the forum. They may not have a reliable internet connection where they are, and are therefore not able to check this website often. If you send something that triggers an email perhaps they may get it on their phone.
