Beluga bus questions

Hi! Gorgeous conversion! How much are you asking? Also, do you know much about selling it and retitling it in the US? We want to move to Washington and live in skoolie. Yours is close enough, but I never looked into buying from across the border.

Many will want to know what specifics are in the drive train.

What engine? be specific
What transmission? be specific
Rear end ratio
tire condition/tread life

and...... duh.... the price.

Looking at this https://www.dropbox.com/sh/fii1heia8...kvrBAM9Va?dl=0 The PDF shows a price of $36K. If that is in Canadian $ then it should be around $27K US.

shouldn't be a problem as it was built in North America - I imported a Tucker sno-cat from the US to Canada and it was relatively simple, made even easier by the use of a broker who filled out the paper work correctly the first time - all I needed to present at the border was the bill of sale, hand the customs guy the paper work done by the broker, sign a couple of papers and I was good to go - ( after paying the local sales tax - there were no import duties )

I imported my truck into the US from Canada myself.

Minor PITA. Would have been downright easy if a had not had the poor luck of getting one of the "less energetic" customs officers to assist me. He had his priorities and I can really understand. I like doughnuts more than work too......,

I would have some reservations about paying top dollar for a bus conversion with the original ceiling still in place and "household insulation". I suspect that means that it has the original fiberglass insulation. For a weekend rig that may be ok but I have tried longer stays in hot and cold climates in a bus with original ceiling and insulation. Not my idea of comfortable. I put 2" of closed cell spray in my last bus and I would call that a good start.

Also, I would definitely want to be certain that the bus is equipped with a top notch drive train. At that price I would be looking for a DT-530 or an 8.3 and an MD3060 transmission.

Good luck.
