that's a nice looking bus. It's to bad they're asking that much for it.

How come the Siskiyou mountains are named? It looks like the same coastal mountains I live in near the northern border of Oregon.

I've heard there are lots of old mining locations in your area.

It doesn't say which engine or what kind of brakes.

Vintage says T444(E), DT360, or DT466, any of which would be okay in a bus that size.

Since it is CA spe'c I would guess it has air brakes.

For the price, it isn't a bad looking bus. I would rather pay less but the asking price is not a bad retail price.

I'm not sure from where the siskiyou mountains are named.probly from native americans in some way.i believe it's part of the Klamath mountain range but gets more water due to there elevation and proximity to the coast.t here is a ton of old mining history here forsure! I can see sailors diggins from my bus and just over the hill is the ghost town of Waldo..where the first mining district in Oregon originated.historic copper mine up on the hill and a huge walking dredge somewhere around here too,though I have never seen it.

As for the bus...the price is a lot more then I would want to pay too, but is fairly realistic from what I can tell.i payed close to that for my bus and it had twice the miles on it.not saying I got the best deal.if you want a solid 3/4 bus like this though, there aren't a whole lot of them out there.when I bought mine in Lancaster CA. There was a growing list of folks that wanter to buy the bus.i just happened to call first.jumped in the truck with my dad and drove 800 miles to get there. The real problem that I see is if the bus is registered as a people mover.it might be a nightmare trying to get it legal to drive home.the one I bought had air brakes but fortunately had already been titled as a motorhome...thus no endorsements needed to drive it home. Your correct in that international was cranking out great diesel options for this year.i would happily drive any of those engines.

Opinions vary, and apparently so do laws from state to state, but very few people have trouble driving the buses home with air brakes and no endorsements.

Generally speaking private use vehicles don't need air endorsements, unless you're headed to Canada, but each of us has to get the real information from our own state to make sure.

I thought I need an air endorsement in my own state also at first. Not necessary for private use.

I'll give it a shot.

Apparently some states have an air brake endorsement that they can put on your license.

My state, and many other, don't have the endorsement. I'd have to get a class B license in order to have an air brake endorsement.

The deal with Canada is that they require a driver with an air brake endorsement on the license to be able to enter or exit Canada's borders.

It's a confusing issue because each US state seems to have a different type of licensing an air brake endorsement.

Clear as mud right? You don't need an air endorsement to operate your bus for your own purposes in the US. If you're planning a trip to Canada you'll need the endorsement. I haven't heard of any air brake endorsement requirement for Mexico.

Is the canada air brake requirement something you can confirm or is it just hearsay? Seems like they would be turning a lot of people away at the border.

Apparently it's a fact. Some people have been simply turned away, while in one case they were let into Canada but had to get a driver with air endorsement to cross the border while exiting Canada. There was someone there to drive their bus past the border, but it could create a real problem while traveling.
Some of the Canadians have indicated that different provinces may or may not require the air brake endorsement to pass the border.
Personally I'll get the endorsement before I attempt going through Canada.
