Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

the budget was 10K.....we actually spent about 13K. That includes the price of the bus, 2 plane tickets to arizona, fuel to get the bus home, renting the indoor workspace, all the material for the bus, and a few other odds/ends

perhaps we'd be better served by building an econo-model that we can put only about $5K into and sell between 10-20K....

the counter just clocked 9,000 visitors. there are 57 watchers...hopefully at least a few of them are gonna bid. haven't had any bids in at least the past day or two. price is still at $15,100.

i didn't bid on this bus until literally the last 2 minutes. i hope the final few minutes of this bus turn out to be exciting.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

Hopefully the reserve is low enough that you don't have to re-list it.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

22 hours to go and still holding at $15,100. I'm figuring that it will come down to the last few minutes or seconds even.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

i meant to have the auction end on sunday, i just don't count so good. 10 days from wed is sat....phill just pointed out to me that tonight is saint patties day...UGGG Hope everyone isn't gonna be out on the town tonight instead of at home bidding on my bus. OOPSIES!

3 hours 11 min to go, and 11,085 visitors.....

must be the girl in the bikini...other buses ending right around the same time as mine only have about 1K visitors. The girl in the bikini is my g/f by the way.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

The mighty Casey has struck out.

i was expecting to be much wealthier today

I'm gonna re list later today with a few modifications. If it doesn't sell this time around then perhaps i'll try my hand at limo service for a while. All of my other buses sold on ebay after 2 auctions each. The first one i sold the high bidder couldn't come up with the money, relisted it and got an extra couple thousand $$. The second one i listed a "bus tattoo" for sale with all the bus details the week before i sold the actual bus.

we'll relist for a week and see what happens

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

Didn't your last bus bring about that much?

I think it might be a bad time of year. Maybe it will get more interest in the summer.

One other thing. I would think that a party on wheel like that thing might be really nice to have a bathroom in. If it's used for bachelor parties or whatever, you gonna have a whole lotta drinking going on. You could probably put in a half bath without losing too much space. Also, you ought to look into some sort of paint scheme. It's pretty boring as it is.

I think you should give the limo thing a shot.

Good luck.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

You mean there's not a bathroom in there already?

What's the jacuzzi for?

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV


All right, it's officially Pick-On-Jason-Day.

All that beer and no place to drain it????!!!!

It needs to be an RV type commode, since residential units are not allowed in RVs. Some of those are pathetically small and uncomfortable, but you can also get full size ones like my Thetford Aria in the "tall" version with full size oval seat. The Aria is expensive, but I'd spring for full size commode as they are easier to hit -- specially when the... uh... commodity... is beer.
