Is it worth it?

I'm new to the skoolie movement and I've done a bit of research but I wanted talks opinion. I am looking at bidding on this bus and wanted to know if it's worth the money.

Let me know what y'all think!

C7 Cat. I'd pass.
I'd bid on it at the current price just for the Onan, but I'd have zero interest in the bus itself.

Not only is it a C7, but it's also a 2007.

So it's got all the emissions stuff on it.

07 was the start oif that? I was thinking it was 08 that started the DPF filters and all on busses...

I want a C2 bus like that... Love the modern shape.

You might be right about that.

I know Cat switched to common rail injection on the C7 in 2007 in order to help comply with emissions requirements. I thought the other emissions equipment was introduced at the same time that change occurred, but I could be wrong about that part.

it very well mightve been, 2008 was the required year.. so starting in 07 wouldnt be out of the question... im not up on CAT stuff as much as I am the navistar.. but makes since if they went common rail to go ahead and install everything else too.. give yourself a year to test it..
