So you mean just that model in general, irrespective of price, condition, options, etc?


I love the size of the 8-9 window flat noses TC1000's. I like the look of the TC2000 more than the TC1000, but I like the 'breadbox' look of both, and it seems easier to find shorter TC1000's.


If its truly 25ft, I'm guessing its an 8 window which is fairly rare. I bet they can turn on a dime--well maybe a half dollar, but still--the wheelbase looks to be about the same as a fullsize pickup truck or cargo van.

Those 4-door full size pickups with full size beds have a longer wheelbase than mine.


Overall, I like mine.

Looks to be on great conditions. Has already been painted and conversion about half way done. At least the hard parts are done (floor/seats removal & paint), paint job looks very well done. Looks well taken care of. I counted 9 windows, but one was smaller. Asking $6500
