SWEET p30 in TN

I've been outbid, despite calling dibs lol.
Anyone wanting a CLEAN, good running mini bus should jump on this. Roxy will kill me if I pay more for it than we'd already bid!

OK, who broke the rules. You can't snake something once dibs are called!

I'd never snake a fellow snaker, and certainly not my "Sunshine" frind from Fla.
That bus is on my radar, but haven't heard that may good/great things about that chassis. Is it good enough for a "light" conversion? Seems to be enough room for a 2 person "run-a-bout"
I figure it's close enough to ECCB, that I could drive it down, and maybe get some help with some of the grunt work. lol
HOWEVER... the little lady has been getting some "less than encouraging" vibes from work, and until that is behind her, I have to wait.

I was gonna actually use this one. I need a small gasser for lawn service. I think my current shorty may be a wee bit much for the job.
I wouldn't buy a p30 for any kind of conversion other than light weekend camper. They're not very fun to drive.

Who knows- its outa my hands now. A new forum member had emailed me about wanting to buy it to drive around the country on a tour. I told em it wasn't a good candidate, but they didn't seem too detered. Doesn't matter- I bid what I could afford and no hard feelings.

I looked at it.. didnt place a bid... No Air-Con.. not that I dont mind adding A/C, but the bus has gottago real cheap if im gonna add A/C to it... and with a gasser i wouldnt be able to let it idle..

At least it went for more than I was willing to spend. I was gonna snag it if it could be had for less than 1900.
