What's the daunting part - the distance alone or driving it with an unfamiliar vehicle? The price seems very reasonable to me for the vehicle spec.

It has a md3060 trans and the DT530 engine...not sure how hubby will react to it being all the way in Phoenix though...that's a long drive with a new bus haha

What do you think?

Worth the drive. That 530 is badass.

I agree it's a reasonable price. It's about $3800 more than we currently have saved...obviously our cash budget goes up over time as we add to it. Husband not having time to take off work to go get it, not to mention the cost of flights and gas and that I'm 22 weeks pregnant and stay home with our 2.5 year old lol. I am finding more of what we want on the west coast though. All it means is that we may just have to push back our hopeful time frame until we can get our budget to that price range.

IDK, but I'd get insurance on it and bring it on home, man. That's not a bad price for a helluva bus.
I came home 800 miles without a tag and never got even a glance from the fuzz. KY doesn't give temp tags so I just drove it on back. No way was I coming all the way home just for a tag.
If you're buying it out there at a dealer they'll almost surely give you a temp tag, so that's one less thing to hassle with.

Yeah, I spent a little over $200 on fuel from KY to central FL.
Ask the dealer how much to deliver it to Atlanta. Can't hurt to ask!

Would you happen to have an idea of what kind of mileage I would get seeing as it would be empty and going through flat land down south? Trying to figure cost of deisel on the way home

I did ask and they do pick up only 😞

There is a swell place in Florida that I'm subscribed to their new inventory updates and they deliver to me for $700...so if I can find one through them I can do a 3 month free layaway and have it delivered. This one seems like a freaking killer bus...but the cash amount concerns me. Not sure we can find that much at this moment.

Figure between 8-10 mpg roughly.
