'82 35ft Crown being retired from fleet service

CHP certified, owned by commercial fleet operator selling his last 1982 35ft 2-axle Detroit 6-71 turbo with RT-910 (non-O.D) approx 70mph rear-end. Excellent condition, and lovingly maintained. It's his baby and usually drives it himself. I've driven this one and see no reason why it can't go another 30 years with regular maintenance. Individuals can't possibly put enough miles on a Crown to compare with how they are used in revenue service where 200 miles a day is low average to make any money. I'm not involved and only spreading the word for him. He's busy running his company, and I was interested in it at one time, so he called me. He's asking $7500, and it's worth every penny, due to drive away and many trouble-free years condition. Much better than most Ebay/Craigslist Cyphers with never revealed rust, mechanical issues etc. You should all know it isn't what you pay for it, it's what you need to make it usable afterwards. That can easily be more than the initial purchase price. You get what you pay for, always.
Contact Frank in So. Cal. at 626-222-8416. He's serious and very fair in his asking price, you should be too. If you really want a Crown this is a very good one at a fair price.

Hey! That's not an RV, that's a school bus.
Well thank you for noticing, Captain Obvious

I've watched so many worse Crowns go for the same price or even more. I agree, I need to start putting money aside for situations just like this.
