If everything is as it was described then it would appear as if you got a pretty good deal.

Good luck and happy trails!

Nice. This bus had been on Craigslist for a while. I think I recall the price starting at 12k later dropped to 8k.
I think you got a good deal.

So, we picked it up in Bennett Iowa, arrived late, cold as hell, had no time for inspection or instruction, took off and stopped for the night about 70 miles to the south. It was 30 below that night and we could not plug in so we ran the generator and a couple electric heaters, but the generator would only run for about 3 1/2 hours, so we had to run and an refuel. we made it to Enid, Oklahoma to visit my wife's daughter, stayed for a week plugged in and no issues. It all works and no we are refitting some things to our liking. We have jobs lined up with Grand Canyon and have to report soon. the rest of the refit will have to wait till we are out there. Here are a few pics. no pics fail no matter how small I make them.
