I'd love a bus like this, and I like the size. Best of luck in the sale, man.

That's a nice starter bus for someone and a pretty decent price.

Nice bus.

Does it need anything to be road worthy? How much does it weigh?

It is road worthy, never had it weighed since it is licensed as a motor home, GVW is 29,000 but that's based on the chassis used, not actual weight

Oh yeah that's right. I'm just used to asking that on the auction sites I guess. I know that transmission gets its fair share of criticism but in a short bus with 4:10 gearing does it cruise better MPG MPH wise? I was trying to avoid it because I want to pull a car on a trailer (roughly 7k lbs total) but hadn't had much luck on the auctions. Not really sure if its as big of a deal as I'm making it out.

I pretty much changed the gears so it would go faster than 62 mph, it will pretty much go 70 and cruise at 65, never took a trip with it after the gear change so do not know how it affected the mileage, I got 8 or so when I drov it home after buying it.

if you are going to tow a trailer, you will need to have a transmission cooler installed
