That was just the tow company's rig. The dealer doesn't do their own towing. I called around but these guys were the most highly rated. No regrets. The guy was nice and gentle with my bus.
But yeah my wallet is definitely not enjoying this one bit.

Got two new solenoids for 78 shipped. Will use the one working one I have now as a backup.
Now have a backup solenoid and wiper motor. The parts pile has begun.
Got all the stuff to change the tranny fluid and both filters, and a big honkin oil filter for the next oil change.
Tomorrow I'm off to Rural King for 12 gallons of oil to do Sandi's bus and for my next change.
Now to sell off a few things I don't need to raise some tire money! My two inner rears are BALD, and I have nails in at least two tires, one front one rear.

It will cost you more than you had planned, but it will be the bus you wanted with all the nasty suprises taken care of.
