let us know what you find out if you go check it out! man i still trying to find good enough reason to have 2 buses... lol. i need a couple tires and those seem to be in great shape. and random parts exactly. i would hate to part out a running rig though. then i have skeleton in yard. specially when it just passed inspection. maybe get it strip out just seats, swap tires and use for storage / future skoolie to work and then sell.

That's just silly. You don't need a good reason to have more than one bus...or 4 or 5.

At what point does reason enter into bus ownership?

Judging from the opinions of all the people I know, it actually exits just before you make the decision to buy a bus...

I'm brand new to this forum, and haven't bought my bus yet (still in planning stages). Quick question.... I found a bus for sale that is a 1999 Amtran Genesis . It has 22,718 miles on it. Runs on diesel fuel. 84 seats. Chassis - IHC. Engine - DT466. And it's only $6,400 through a dealer. To me that seems like a steal. What's wrong? Like I said, I'm just barely in the door and learning about the different kinds of buses out there and have very little idea what to look for in purchasing one. I hope to buy one in Apr, May, June (at the latest. So, I'm spending the winter studying up. Any thoughts on this particular bus? Thanks!

put this in a thread of its own. it totally out of place here. youll get better feed back that way.
sounds like engine is a score w low miles, but i think that is expensive for that old of rig

weight?

It says the GVW is 30k. Would being over 26k cause problems for licensing or registration? Reading Maine's statute, I can't tell if the "personal use" provision for a Class C license trumps the 26k pound maximum.

Did they buy it and then find out they couldn't drive it without a CDL?
