any input on this bus?

Hi, I'm looking for a starter bus and saw this on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1995-INT ... 841d#v4-43

why does this bus have no bids?
I'm looking for something easier to get around in than a full-sized bus, but with maximum space and this looks like a good compromise. I want to create a small motor home. Thinking about buying an old camper and taking the kitchen/bathroom parts out to put in the bus. I welcome any helpful suggestions.

thanks

Why no bids . I don't know.
Have seen the bus listed I think on CL but it was too far away for me, NY i think.......
Anyway the price is good.

Saw one in TX .. CL again for $4,200

If you are close it might be worth checking out.

Thanks guys, sounds like you all didn't see anything wrong with it immediately. It's about 5 hours away, but I think I'll go check it out.
does anyone know if special driver's license is needed for this 25' bus? and step away from the bid button!

No CDL required for it here in TN....... Probably not yours either...... less than 26,000 lbs you should be fine....

Not sure if it varies by state but I believe CDL is required for any vehicle with air brakes.

Re: any input on this bus?

From what I have read on here (and other places), in most states (maybe all?) vehicles titled as RVs are exempt from the air brake = CDL requirement rule.
