Hey from New Hampshire...
Hi Folks... My name is Rick and my wife is Debby... we're about to buy the bus pictured here for 3k. Here are the specs:
2001 International, 36 pass. Mileage 103250. Has T444E diesel 7.3L engine with automatic trans. Hydraulic brakes.
It looks very clean... just want to make sure it's not a "bad" model ... whatever that means. Researched the T444E, most think it's a decent engine if treated right. We'll check for rust (it's in Pennsylvania); but if any fellow, "skool-kids," knows of reason to avoid this model, we would love to hear from you. We're driving down on Friday to pick it up unless someone here convinces us otherwise.
Great forum... can't believe we're going to start from scratch (I'm 63... Deb is... younger than that). We plan on touring northern Vermont, NH and Maine looking for a spot to build a tiny house. Winter? Just call us Rick & Debby Snowbirds... look forward to hearing from folks here.
The road to enlightenment is long and difficult, be sure to bring along some magazines and a snack...
