Re: 1991 Blue Bird TC2000

Heyup Pete
Thanks for the advice and I am trying to reach this fella.

As for future plans Conneticut was a port of call .. so I'll buy you a pint !, you buy me one and we''ll share a few more then after.

I have to stick one more piss ass winter here, but it is warmer than Sheffield UK

Nawfuk ... now ya know why I wanna leave the place. I think every girl I've hung with here should have stayed at the zoo hehehehehe.
It's me, my black lab, a future black bus for now ...

I love the road, so I'm buzzing the idea, but I have sell up (2 boats, 1 power 1 sail to help fund the trip) but I have money to get the spaceship ready ..

Cheers mate
Alan

You're right, it SCREAMS "HERE COMES THE SWAT TEAM!!!". Just don't try to score drugs in it.

Re: 1991 Blue Bird TC2000

It's actually a cool looking bus. It even has roo bars. No windows is a plus. I can't imagine how much time you would save by not having to skin it yourself. I've had two 5.9's in pickups, I love them. I don't know if I would feel the same way in a bus. He says he's open to reasonable offers. Who knows, you might get a really good bus for a fair price. In my opinion, I would pay a little more for a bus if it had things that I wanted or didn't want (like rust). Good luck.

What is the new rig? Is it a bus?
no, it's a 1998 international truck that's been converted to a toterhome. pic:

Towing a compact Car (possible?) as I need to earn along my way
yes, easily. i have towed as much as 14k with it and it's done well. a compact car would be nothing.

Quote:
MPG (not a biggy but has to be considered)
empty, it gets close to 14 or so. towing it gets 8-10 depending on the load. these aren't exact calculations as the odometer quit working shortly after i bought it, but they're close.

Quote:
Is it already regsitered as RV (VIN etc)
yes.

Quote:
Can you send some photos your ad expired on CL
i thought i posted a link somewhere in here, but here it is again anyway just in case:

Quote:
Why r u upgrading ?
two reasons. 1. i recently bought a 2 car hauler and need something with a little more power to pull it 2. i just didn't have the time i thought i would to do a full conversion. it made more sense to buy something complete and sell this.

Quote:
R u in NC?? I am in Norfolk VA
yes, raleigh nc. i'll be going to D.C. this friday. if you decide you want it, we could work out meeting somewhere.

Quote:
Any major mechanical concerns on long distance travel? I know I have to change the oil
not at all. i'd drive it across the state tomorrow. it does need some tlc cosmetically in a few spots, but nothing major or that affects driving it. i can list the things if you'd like. i had it completely checked over by a truck shop when i bought it, and all the mechanicals were in great shape.

Quote:
Having done enough on boats I have genny and all other resources so take what you need and work with me
that's fine. like i said, i'll be more than happy to work on the price if i keep some of the stuff that's in it. drop me a pm or email to icsealey@yahoo.com and we can discuss further if you'd like.

Re: 1991 Blue Bird TC2000

Nice Truck! Post pics of its inside. Looks like you might just get it sold after all. Good luck to both of you!

It is a pretty bus. I would have to paint it though. Black shows all flaws. Even the best bus has them.
