First let me thank you all for your comments. I have not looked at a bus conversion before and am a little overwhelmed.
I did look at the bus yesterday and wanted to update the Craigslist Post with some of my observations as well as attach some additional photos that I received from the owner.
The wood interior on the bus was done by a Mennonite from Pennsylvania prior to the current owner getting the bus. The craftsmanship is awesome. The wood paneling is in great shape.
Things kinda go downhill from there. Since the photos were posted with his CL ad, the owner has removed the dinette, drivers seat, Xantrax invertor, rear view mirrors and any WVO equipment on the bus. He showed in his posts 4 gray seats installed for driver, navigator, and 2 rear passengers behind the driver. He also showed photos of 4 black reclining seats, and a Flexsteel 6 way seat. I never saw the black seats or the Flexsteel seat. Currently the bus has no driver seat at all and the other 3 gray seats in place. The invertor has been removed, but will be included in the sale for "full asking price". The batteries are currently being charged by an external charger if at all. I'm not sure what else has been altered in the wiring due to the invertor being removed. He is willing to throw in the dinette parts if I am interested. The 75gal tanks for WVO is still in place but not hooked up at all, and any other WVO equipment that was installed at one time has been removed. I don't know what happened to the rear view mirrors shown in his ad, but he said that he has a set that are a huge upgrade, that would come for "full asking price".
The bus would not start, so I could not even hear it run. No power, and did not even try to turn over. This again concerns me about the wiring after the removal of the Xantrax convertor/charger. The bus was plugged in to shore power when I arrived.
I was a little disappointed to say the least.
Here is a link to additional photos that show the rust on the exterior of the bus. Most minor surface rust, but some will require panel replacement.

All this being said, I am still interested in the bus, at the right price. I just hate to pay $14,500 for some nice woodwork and alot of problems.
Let me know what you think. I appreciate all comments.
