Reportedly rust free except small surface rust (bus from the south) which was there when they purchased but has been covered with rustoleum since.
Really don't know much about Warewolfs bus. Personally I would look closer at the build before spending any money.

All I can say is that it most likely has an Allison AT545. I personally am not interested in that drive train at all, especially in a bus that large.

Here's the link to his forum add with a bunch of details on the work and appliances so far, seems like people were saying it's a fair deal for the bus type and all the electrical work that's gone into it (there's a whole lot of solar on that roof! This is what he said about the insulation "I peeled back the skin and the original fiberglass insulation was still pearly white, so I left it and added 2" foamular on the walls and floor. The roof is still original fiberglass. There are 2 x Tristar MPPT60's so yes, solar could be expanded easily. I doubt you'll need it though." Planning on going to check it out later today if you give the all clear on the build/price tag! Thanks for all the help Marc, resting easier knowing I've got sound advice through this nerve wracking purchasing process! 15K is a lot of cheddar but I'm so excited to join the Skoolie community!
