Pictures would help if you have any.
Someone said there needs to be 5 posts under your belt before you can post pics, so if you're interested in more hits on your bus by being able to actually post pics, get busy posting!!!
Welcome to the site Jeff, even if for only selling your bus...

Thanks For The Welcome!


I think the images were too large as it said: "Gateway Time Out".

This is my 12-15th bus or motor coach, lol.

I'm selling it to help with moving expenses as I've acquired some property.

Saf-T-Liner Details

Hello Again!

It had a "NoCold" fridge that didn't work & I'm installing one in the opening now.

I'm reworking the dinette now as I like it & was trying to save it. I have the table & mount.

All of the lights, inside & out have been replaced with LED's.

The 55" Lightbar upfront is about 80 watts & will Blind You, lol.

It has a 1..5K watt inverter with 3 fairly new gel storage batteries.

It has a 30 amp rv hook up with cable & the reel is for a regular 120 hookup.

The engine battery was replaced when the house batteries where installed.

It has a rear camera with a 7" color monitor that can be used while in motion.

The new class 5 hitch is rated at 12K lbs. & has both style plugs.

There's a decent stereo above the Air Ride drivers seat with speakers in the ceiling & it has an amplifier & Infinity subwoofer under the dinette/bed.

The floors & walls were framed & insulated with foam board.

The air operated entry door works as it should.

The tires have some checking due to age but have at least an inch of tread left!

The awning needs the strip that attaches it to the roof & the material is showing some wear but the frame is excellent.

The glass is all good except for a small star on the passenger windshield & the front/passenger side glass, beside the windshield has some cracks in it.

The air tank(s) will hold air until the cows come home, lol.

There's a touchpad on the dash for the lights/fans & a voltage/status indicator for the batteries.

I have a proper door for the propane tank cover, to replace the temporary one that's on there now.

That's Two Coats Of Tuscon 7000, Something Like That, Lol, On The Roof. It's Some Pretty Expensive Roof Coating With Very High Reflective Properties.

The Paint Is Krylon 'Pom Pom Orange", "Mocha Madness" & "Perfect Peacock", Hi, Hi, Hi... (That's Been Somewhat Faded By The Arizona Sun.)

I could go on & on, lol & will add more when I can.

I Also Have A 45' PREVOST LeMirge, That Has Been Patiently Waiting, For Many, Many Moons, To Be Rescued By Somebody Kra Kra Like Me, Lol.

I Put The "Kra" In Kra Kra, Hi, Hi, Hi...

True Love Is Blind...

True Love Is Blind...

That's My Old '64 MCI Challenger Sitting Beside The Prevost, AFTER Spending At Least 6 Weeks Polishing The Stainless By HAND, With Some Fine Sand Paper...

The Prevost Isn't As Bad As It Looks In That Photo, But The Challenger Was Worse Than That When I Got It.

Y'all Have A Good One.
