Did you drive them? 45' of coach is fantastic when designing a build, tough when backing into friend's driveway.

Just 2 of you? 35' is plenty of space. If you are set on the MCI (and I would if I could), put in a lowball cash offer.

Good luck and kudos on being picky and patient.

a new bus is on the map, just saw it on Craigslist tonight. It seems so inexpensive for a 45' Neoplan, what are your thoughts?

My immediate thought was, these buses must be hard to find parts for and expensive when you do. Would i regret any price savings the first time I break down or need some sort of repair?

On the upside it has the Detroit 60 series, which seems to be pretty common. Its those curved windows and such...

Anyhow, here is the bus. We were slated to go down to Boston anyhow to look at a yard of school buses and now this:

I would have expected a bus like this to be at least double the price.
Thoughts?

Sure looks purdy in the photos. Biggest concern for me on a coach would be the frame/rust.

Let us know if it rides like a Lincoln !
