Re: Looking for a bus

The Bluebird I know is a good one, and the low miles is hard to believe. I wonder if it has a 5 or 6 digit odometer?
It's a 4 hour drive to it's location from my house.... A long drive only to look and ask questions... I called but they seemed indifferent to any possible sale with limited knowledge and a don't give a s--t attitude... kinda makes one wonder?

Re: Looking for a bus

I have found lots of buses , just not sure about which one I want, or if some are better than others, thats why the post !
not trying to BS anyone I am a rookie when it comes to buses, but I have had 3 motorhomesand a 5er, 1st 1 was a 1988 Winnebago 34 ft, 2nd was a 1996 Holiday Rambler 36 ft w/ slide, 3rd was a 35.5 5th wheel triple slide towed with an 05 Dodge dually, and just sold my 1998 40 ft Holiday Rambler Imperial diesel pusher. all were somewhat of a disapointment. cheaply made except for the pusher but really didn't like it, too big and could on get in the big rig friendly parks. Anyway I started looking at skoolies and liked the idea of driving something that is built like a tank, doesn't come with the cheap leaky rubber roof, made of cardboard , glue and paper.

Am looking for a ? I guess 3oish something bus with I think a diesel for power, torque, and longjevity.
Requesting only info from some of the more experienced Skoolies......
Thanks for you input.
