That's commonly a $2-$3K bus around here, I doubt you'll get near your asking price for a bare bus. I suspect you paid less than half that and haven't done $3500 worth of conversion. Why are you selling a recently purchased bus, unless it was to flip it for profit? Good luck

So you're saying you're not interested?

OP,

I think Marc was trying to kindly point out the reality of what people on this forum typically spend for similar buses.

If you are firm on your price you may have better success listing it on CL or eBay.

We are not trying to pick on you or your bus. Just offering friendly advice to a new member.

Good luck with your sale.

Got a whole lot full of similar busses near me they are asking 2-3k for. They haven't had the seats and floor pulled though
