Re: UP FOR SALE! 1991 New Flyer 60 Foot Articulated - $5000

that's a good price. someone will probably snatch it up before i get back from burningman. I plan to put the jacuzzi bus for sale on ebay in september/early october. Once i sell it, i just might see if i can find a giant 60 footer

Re: UP FOR SALE! 1991 New Flyer 60 Foot Articulated - $5000

i'm on my way home from new york city where i spent the past weekend. I was really excited to ride on a couple of 60 footer's. I assume they were new flyers, but i didn't see any identifying emblems on them. Ceilings seemed to be about 6.5 feet tall. O the possibilities!

A 60 foot bus is HUGE!

I hope to have jacuzzi bus ebay auction end 2 weeks from today, then i can head down to La to check out your bus.

She still for sale?

Re: UP FOR SALE! 1991 New Flyer 60 Foot Articulated - $5000

been reading some posts about the legality of driving a 60 foot bus. Seems on many bus forums the general consensus is that you cannot drive a 60 foot articulated bus without a special permit for being oversize.

just so happens that michigan is a 60 foot friendly state. here's an excerpt:
"
"(2) Lengths described in this subsection shall be known as the normal length maximum. Except as provided in subsection (3), the following vehicles and combinations of vehicles shall not be operated on a highway in this state in excess of these lengths:

(b) Articulated buses: 65 feet."

my current skoolie is registered as a non-commercial bus. I think that if the artic is registered the same it will be legal to drive here. I know a local guy that has 2 of them and has driven to cali and florida without any legal problems.

whoo hoo

Re: UP FOR SALE! 1991 New Flyer 60 Foot Articulated - $5000

i sold the jacuzzi bus on paper, but don't yet have the $$ although i got a 1,000 deposit instantly. Shouldn't count my chickens.

time to start thinking about the next project....

i've been watching 60 footers on ebay in the past couple weeks and noticed a disturbing trend. Nobody wants them!

This one had a starting bid of $6,800 and ended with zero bids
Item number: 290169063411


This 60 footer went for $3,610
Item number: 230179674766

hmmmm......

my fear is that i'm going to spend the money and put forth the effort to build a vehicle nobody wants, although i still plan to do it.

I think an extendo-road trip sounds fun. Deliver jacuzzi bus to richmond virginia, then rent a car one way to memphis tn....then rent a car locally (a lot cheaper) and cruise down to lousinia where the 60 footer is. buy batteries, work at getting her started, inspected, payed for, temporary tags ect.....then drive the bus/car back to memphis, drop off the car and the two of us can cruise back to michigan in the beast.

Yeah but none of them had a jacuzzi inside... look at what a used school bus goes for vs. one with a jacuzzi inside. If you need someone to ride along on your road trip, let me know.

if all goes as planned, we should be heading down to Louisiana this weekend to look at that bus.

Re: UP FOR SALE! 1991 New Flyer 60 Foot Articulated - $5000

that puts a crimp in our plans....glad to find that out now rather than after we arrive.

still not sure what to do about title/money exchange since the bus is 1,000 miles from where the title is located. I'll pm you.
