I've never heard of an "Alpine" version of the TC2000. What exactly makes it an Alpine model?

We were told that it's being called the alpine model has to do with the gearing. Maybe also to do with the length/ wheel base. It was used for a school route in the mountains. The bus is originally from Wenatchee, WA. (Which is also really nice because no salt in WA- so no rust)

We are lowering the price to 12,000 for now. It's not the cheapest priced bus ever- but we paid quite a bit for it as it is a super cool and unusual bus. We love it because of the gearing which lends to great fuel economy, and the length and wheel base make for amazing maneuverability. It can go so many places most busses can't. That's why we paid so much for it- So we were hoping not to take too huge of a loss, obviously.

The reason we're selling it is mostly because my husband thought I could get comfortable driving it, but I'm not... The manual is a little hard for me. We really need something we can both drive.

I want to point out the mpg- my husband corrected me- we get 15 mpg at the very best in the bus- I was thinking of another rig we have when I wrote up to 18. Sorry about that. I wanted to correct it- but I don't think I can edit posts.

Thanks for your comments.

I have to agree that it looks like a fantastic platform to build on but...

I can't see that price for any 22 year old unit that isn't fully professionally converted and something more classic. Sweet yes...but...
