Opinion on bus model

Here's a link to what I'm looking at: https://www.carsforsale.com/vehicle/details/42277298#

I think $3500 for any vehicle with less than 10,000 miles is pretty stellar. But this type's engine is really difficult to access?

I wouldn't be adding a ton of weight. I'm going very simple and lightweight. I'm not adding wood to the walls or ceiling, and very sparse furniture, no built-ins. Our belongings already fit into a minivan!

I haven't been able to find any info on this year and model! Is this a steal or what?

Looks like it could be a nice bus.

As instrument clusters fail and are replaced regularly, I would not trust the mileage in the ad.

The best thing you can do is go and inspect the bus. Check for rust, mechanical condition etc. If it looks good then take it for a test drive and a visit to a mechanic.

If it passes muster I would consider $3500 a reasonable price. Personally, i would offer something less than their asking price.

Good luck with your quest.

No way is that mileage correct. It seems 9 out of 10 buses get speedo replacements during the 1st 150K miles.
